Unique collectables, delicious fragrances, fine dining, natural elements and great music all add up to a home and shop that appeals to all of the senses. It is one of our favorite inspiration books in addition to Botanical Style by Selena Lake, The New Bohemians by Justina Blakeney and The Creative Cottage by Steve Gross & Susan Daley.

In addition to their forward thinking philosophy regarding fragrance, the company supports a wide variety of environmental initiatives focused on sustainability. Hollyhocks sells their double wick tins, travel tins and votive sets. The favorite at Hollyhocks is Tomato Blossom known for its complex notes of citrus, grapefruit and tomato leaf. We also carry Aqua Marine, Lavender & Fig, Black Birch, White Gardenia and Blood Orange scents in double wick tins.
DC Designs Jewelry
DC Designs is the brain child of the talented, Dana Conklin, a native of the Eastern Shore and a resident of Chincoteague. She hand crafts beautiful sterling silver earrings and necklaces, each piece burnished to a rich shine.

Hollyhocks supports companies (local and global) that engage in Fair Trade and provide community support for the environment and local artisans.

Sale of the brilliantly hued Vance Kitira candles help re-forestation projects in regions of Thailand damaged by severe flooding. We also sell vibrant market baskets hand woven in Ghana with the proceeds going to support humanitarian projects in the region.
Each season we put up a new inspiration board which drives everything from what we buy to how it is displayed. Our inspiration comes from magazines, catalogs, decorating books and blogs, pinterest boards and retail therapy. Some our favorite trends currently include: 1) the use of house plants and botanicals; 2) fun and funky boho chic décor; 3) colorful accents from art to rugs to painted furniture; and 4) living simply and entertaining beautifully. The board is displayed behind the counter and you are welcome to peruse at your leisure. Enjoy!
