Attention Locals and Visitors to Key West. There's a new shop in town that is unlike any other. That's because many of the treasures you will see are custom made right here in Key West for The Garden Cottage Key West located at 526 Southard Street, Key West, Florida 33040 (phone 305.296.9840). E-mail Domkeywest@gmail.com.
The Garden Cottage Key West is owned by Dominique Barrera and Laurie McChesney (both of Preferred Properties). They decided to convert the former offices of Preferred Properties into a shop that could offer one-of-a-kind fountains, lattice work, custom made potting benches made from Dade County Pine or pressure treated wood and gates made of iron or wood. There are also vintage and new treasures for the home or garden. And of course there are gifts and mementos unlike the kind you'll find at a dozen stores on Duval Street. (Our new offices are located at 520 Southard Street, just three doors to the west.)
There are mirrors, vintage flower pots, new flower pots, orchids, herbs, plants, & cacti. There is an antique English glider that arrived today. It's about 120 years old, re-furbished, and painted Kelly Green. Come by, sit down, relax converse. Sit in this glider and dream about living in Key West. You are sure to find something that you absolutely cannot live without.
Stop by and take a peek at the many treasures. Imagine what your home in Paradise or Peoria will look like with a special treasure of your trip to Key West. Tell Dom or Laurie that you heard about The Garden Cottage Key West in my blog and receive a 10% Discount on any item in the shop. How's that for having connections!

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

- I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
