GardenStone Creations: More Than Personalized Stone Engraving

Now that we’ve opened our stone engraving store in Airway Heights, filmed it on Youtube, posted pictures and generally gone crazy introducing it to the Spokane community you’ll notice something odd: We have a lot of things that aren’t actually engraved stones. Is it a trick? Did we just store some stuff from home on the shelving to brighten the place up a bit? No – we’ve added lots of local crafts for interior and exterior décor.

That’s because we always wanted this to be a local business that not only serves the community, but shows it the great artisanship and opportunity that’s all around. Kelly mentions in her TV interview that the local community is a big part of GardenStone Creations. This is not only true for our customers and nearby artisans, but for the other businesses and institutions that made the launch possible.

That’s why GardenStone Décor is an expanding part of our site, and represents the kinds of things you can find in our brick and mortar store too other than great stone engravings for your home and garden. It’s the section that showcases local crafts above and beyond personalized stone engraving to woodwork, metalwork, antiques and other examples of the local community’s creativity. That’s why Kelly pointed out the metalwork in the store. We want to give back to the community because it’s done so much for us.

Remember too, that besides GardenStone Creations our Airway Heights location is also Cascading Creations’ Spokane area landscaping materials yard. We’ve got all the raw material you need to create a beautiful garden in one site, from stones to engraving to fertilizer, and even people who can build you water features to go with it all. Come visit!
