Since 1984 we are a family based, all about Made in the USA, Arizona business. We make cactus dish gardens, boxed travel kits, Hi-Fire Stoneware functional pottery and many more southwest decor items. We make original, unique items that people in Arizona, and visiting tourist, buy as a representing memento of our state and community.
As a family because of our love of cactus and the desert we moved from Illinois to Arizona in 1982 living in a fifth wheel trailer for over 3 years. Dad purchased $60 in cactus bowls and was trying to sell them at a small swap meet. A customer asked him to plant cactus in one of the pots for her which he did. With the cactus garden sitting on a table, waiting for her to come back and pick up the cactus garden, he got several more requests. Working out of a very small shed , Dad, Mom, Daughter, and Son spent most of the day planting cactus, each creating their very first cactus garden. Thus starting our business.
Our love of the desert and close family relationship has kept us all still working together for over 35 years. We have built a successful business that generally supports 7 - 8 employees, who are all like family to us. We all enjoy making hand made products that feature our area, and greatly appreciate our loyal customers who enjoy adding to their collections.
We have recently decided to build a website store for our company. We are still actively working to complete everything. We do not have individual pictures of each item and we have many items to photograph. We spend our time focused on taking care of our customers first, so individual pictures are going to take a bit. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to give us a call and we will work to get you any information needed to purchase our product.
We have a full cactus nursery where we plant and make cactus gardens and boxed cactus travel kits. We sell cactus from small 2 inch plants up to 6 foot landscaping plants. We also have a pottery studio and hand make Hi-Fire stoneware functional and decorative pottery. We have many southwest decor items and souvenir gifts including Raku and Geckos, Cactus Candy, and more.
We have a small store in Apache Junction Mon - Fri 8am -3pm Arizona Time. We also sell at the Mesa Market Place on Saturdays & Sundays, including Fridays in the winter months. Located off Baseline near Signal Butte in Mesa, AZ.
