The gift shop next to Lost River Cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky is not only unique, but as we say in the South, smack dab in the middle of nature’s beauty. Wildflower Gifts opened in 2010 adjacent to Kentucky’s only underground boat tour.

Some of my favorite recent additions to the Nashville Wraps catalog are our plain, unbleached 100% cotton bags. We carry the classic flat drawstring bags and mini totes with handles along with linen bags. While these reusable little bags make pretty, eco-friendly packaging on their own, I especially love how they look with a hand-stamped design.

Rubbish-rescued odds & ends often made their way into his DIY projects. Once he made a patio light cover from Mom’s discarded aluminum bun warmer! [...]
