Norrie's Gift & Garden Shop
This lovely shop overlooks the Monterey Bay from its spot nestled up against the South African protea garden and the Pacific Coast Natives garden.
New gift ideas are constantly being brought in by the staff. All staff members are volunteers and all profits go to support the gardens.
Arboretum members received a 10% discount at Norrie's. Become an Arboretum Member.
The building was donated by Elspeth Bobbs in memory of her daughter. A picnic table by one side of the store is pleasantly shaded.
The shop and the newly expanded patio is a great place to pick up a map and Hummingbird Trail Guide, check out What's Blooming in the gardens, join the Friends of the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum, and to learn about how to best enjoy your visit to the gardens.
Colorful plants selected or imported from distant lands by Arboretum staff are highlighted, as well as garden gift items, cards, garden books, pottery and jewelry. Many new holiday related items will be arriving in the next few weeks.
The stock is always changing. Repeat visits are worthwhile.
Clothing, jewelry, decorative items for indoors and out...every corner holds a treasure.
Norrie's carries books, including some rare and out print volumes, on a broad range of subjects of interest to Arboretum visitors.
