The Uncommon Garden started as a love of creating candles in my kitchen back in 2000. I was on a quest to create a super strong smelling candle because I wasn't happy with any that I purchased.
It took me quite a few classes, alot of reading, and a million prototypes before finding just the right combination of wax, wicks, and scents.

Custom Embroidery

With the explosion of candle orders I added over 100 different scents, created a website, and from that I decided I would like to do more custom embroidery wedding gifts, custom embroidery baby gifts, and personalized items because everyone loves having their name on items, especially for gifts! From that I started adding a few baby items that I embroidered, and went from burp cloths and baby blankets to a full line of personalized gifts that could be embroidered and embellished.

In 2007, I opened my first boutique in Hermitage, TN. We stayed in that location for 3 years, and then moved to our own free standing house about 2 1/2 miles away, which I absolutely loved. We were at that location until June of 2012.

In May of 2012 I made the very bittersweet and difficult decision to close the store front and work strictly through our website. It simply came down to more and more people shopping online and hoping to have a slightly more flexible schedule.

Since the first store that opened, we have added printed shirts, sublimated items, and engraving to our embroidery, monogramming, and gourmet candles. We strive to offer custom gifts that you just can't find anywhere, and we are always available to work with you on anything you might need for a special occasion.

I greatly miss the chats with my customers, and seeing their expression when they pick up a custom order, as that is one thing I love most about what I do.

I hope you will shop around our site, and if you have any questions I am always just a click or phone call away!

Thank you so much for your support!
