Norrie's Gift and Garden Shop

Open every day of the week, 10:00-4:00

This lovely shop overlooks the Monterey Bay from its spot nestled up against the South African protea garden and the Pacific Coast Natives garden. 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. New gift ideas are constantly being brought in by the staff. All staff members are volunteers and all profits go to support the gardens. 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 is a great place to pick up a map and Hummingbird Trail Guide, join the Friends of the UCSC Arboretum, and to learn about how to best enjoy your visit to the garden.

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.
