New Fresh Look

Welcome June...half way through the year, wow!

As the days heat up and school lets out, don't forget we are your not-so-secret gift shop for teacher gifts, weddings, birthdays, showers, graduations, goodies for the cottage and more!
Psst... we have a big deal for you. Beginning June 1st through the 6th all soy lotion in our old style large metal pump bottles and clear 2oz. travel bottles will be half off - while they last! We will be clearing out other miscellaneous products too.
On Saturday, June 6th, from 12 to 4pm we will be donning the store shelves with our new re-branded "All Grown-Up" Green Daffodil core line. After 8 years we felt it was time to update our look. We think it's in keeping with our original packaging, just a little more refined. You are invited to check it out and enjoy a few treats and some punch! We would be remiss not to mention that we have many new products in the shop to keep our gift selection fresh for you to explore!

The following weekend we are setting up camp at the 14th Annual Berkley Art Bash, Saturday June 13th booth number 37. It's sure to be a fun event.
While we have your attention, please mark your calendars for our annual Crazy Garage Sale, June 18 - 20. We have many folks selling their treasures and will be restocking daily! Stay tuned for more details.
The studio is always open Monday-Friday 12 to 5pm, and Saturday 12 to 4pm. If you're lucky, you might catch us making the goodies you have fallen in love with!

Wick & Rosie Candles

After two years in the making we are happy to reveal our NEW candle collection Wick & Rosie.  This new line-up consists of 8 unique blends. The rich scents of Lemon Eucalyptus, Heirloom Peony, Rustic Teakwood, Mediterranean Fig, Lavender Cedarwood, Bergamot Grapefruit, Patchouli Orange, and Rosemary Cinnamon round off the list.  They are hand-poured into low ball drink glasses which can be repurposed after the candle is through.  As with our other soy candles we have added dried herbs for a little color and interest to each.
Once you have delighted your nose with these incredible fragrances you might wonder.....Who are Wick & Rosie?  Well, Rosemary Candleton, is our fictitious founding mother, who we turn to for guidance.  She started Green Daffodil back in the 1920's.  It was a risk, but with her husband Wick by her side for support she was able to turn her dream into the company you have learned to love and enjoy today.  We are here to uphold her values of making the best smelling bath & body products that are not only good for you, but are an everyday pleasure.  She was definitely a trail blazer and was a woman who believed you can do it all as long as you have passion.

Celebrating Five Years Above Ground

So what does it mean that we are celebrating 5 years "above ground"... you're asking?
Well, we started Green Daffodil back in 2006 in a basement, which we out grew in a hurry.
So in 2009 we took a leap of faith to expand and that is when we hit daylight literally and we have not looked back.
In honor of this accomplishment we are hosting a party Saturday, September 6th from 11 to 5pm at our World Headquarters on Livernois in Ferndale.
We have created a Limited Edition Candle Collection for the event. There will be special one-day sales, new merchandise, treats, refreshments and of course our quirky humor.
We invite you and a bus load of friends to come on by to sniff, sip and save!
Siouxsan and Anne
