Fresh new items for gardeners have arrived at Oakland Cemetery’s Visitors Center & Museum Shop! Join us as we celebrate the arrival of spring with great gifts for nature and garden lovers alike.
These all-natural, long-lasting soaps are made in the USA and come in three scents: peppermint, lavender, and bayberry. Perfect for anyone who appreciates a quality soap, but great for gardeners who also need a solid, long-lasting bar that moisturizes with shea butter while cleaning thoroughly. These soaps leave a fresh, herbal scent when used. Priced at $6.99 per bar.
Nature-themed coloring books for kids of all ages
The Museum Shop carries a great selection of nature-inspired coloring books that are perfect for both children and adults. Learn more about the world of flowers as you bring the pages to life with color. Priced from $3.99 to $5.99.
Cast iron rain gages
These charming – and accurate – rain gages feature a bird motif with a weathered finish. Gages are available in the stand version pictured, as well as a stake version for placement in the ground. Priced at $29.99 each.
Books for bird lovers
Birds love spring at Oakland Cemetery, and so do bird-lovers! We have two easy-to-use and informative titles for birders of all ages. Backyard Birding for Kids is a great field guide and activity book for young birders, priced at $9.99. Common Birds of Greater Atlanta for teens and adults is a more comprehensive survey and guide to our local feathered friends, priced at $15.99.
As our grounds come to life once more after a long winter, this is a great time to visit Oakland Cemetery. These offerings and much more can be found in the Visitors Center & Museum Shop seven days a week. Historic Oakland Foundation members save 10% off every purchase.
