Lots of Countertop Composters in Stock

Convenient composting! To help you enrich your soil and recyle in one of the best ways, we’ve re-stocked our supply of countertop composters along with the filters and compost keeper bags to fit.
We have four different models ranging in price from $24.99 for the ceramic pail to $49.99 for one of the stainless steel designs, with two in between.

Note that we brought a very handsome stainless steel composter for $39.99 that has a slimmer profile – oblong rather than round (it’s the one on the far left of the photo). And, we carry an environmentally friendly, ultimately bio-degradable bamboo version for $25.99.

And don’t forget that you don’t have to have your own composter in the back yard. You can take your countertop-collected compost to the Composting Collection booth at the Troy Farmer’s Market!

Taper Candles of Many Colors!

Did you know that we carry Northern Lights Candles? And lots of them? In fact we have around 16 different 12″ taper colors as you can see in the picture. Aside from basic whites and trendy blacks, there are lots of lovely colors for all seasons.

The reason we selected Northern Lights Candles is because they are long-burning (one inch per hour), smokeless and dripless. They are made in Germany for Northern Lights, a New York state company.

We also carry their long-burning tea lights and votives for those of you who don’t want to be replacing them so frequently.

All of these candles are fragrance-free.
