The Gardener's Cottage: Garden of earthly delights

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - If you're in the market for a little whimsy, or could use a dash of charm or maybe just a shot of inspiration, there's a cozy shop in Rancho Bernardo that's got it all.

"The gifts encompass everything from home décor to garden décor to personal products," Sylvia Paulsen said.

Sylvia runs The Gardener's Cottage, which is nestled in the Bernardo Winery. The cottage is packed floor to ceiling with gifts you may not find essential, but somehow have to have.

"I've had some people who have said, 'I need this.' I've seen that a lot," Sylvia said.

It's a shop where you're reminded to not leave home without your gnome.

"We even have the travel gnomes that people take with them on trips," Sylvia said.

Sylvia is the test market for everything in The Gardener's Cottage.

"If I like it, I get it, that's the bottom line," she said.

And even though the shop does sell gifts for children, it may not be kid-friendly.

"Do you see my sign? It says 'My accountant loves it when your kids touch my stuff. Will that be cash or charge?'" Sylvia said.

If you're snickering a bit at The Gardener's Cottage, it's by design.

"I like things that just make you smile when you walk past them," she said.
