Our Story

Once upon a time we were called Violets are Blue and we sold handmade soaps, floral arrangements and hand painted furniture at local street fairs and boutiques. Then for five years, we sold many assorted items at our shop in La Crescenta, California. More recently, we changed our name to Violet Cottage and have been selling our greeting cards online and now we're back into the brick and mortar retail world again after relocating to the Raleigh, North Carolina area.
