The Country Mouse, which has been a mainstay of Fairfield for the past 30+ years, is a great place to find a simple hostess gift or a wedding gift, and they gift wrap!!!! It is all ready to go! mimi

The Country Mouse is a great place to shop. Off the beaten track so parking and traffic are never a problem. Staff is helpful and friendly. Unique baby gifts!

The Country Mouse The best gift shop Around.
Ann Reeves July 31, 2012 at 01:52 PM
My friend Ann worked hard to conceive of a gracious, interesting gift shop with a wide range of gift ideas that were lovely, unusual, and appealing to all ages. Artful paper and cards made it the perfect one-stop gift shop, especially in a last-minute situation as well as when one wanted to plan ahead. 'though Ann has passed on the torch to another owner, the Country Mouse remains as Fairfield's gem of a gift shop.

Visited the Country Mouse in June for a last minute new baby gift. Walked away with: Summer theme linens with matching candles, unique serving platter for a wedding gift, handcrafted bracelet, Fairfield postcards, and oh yes that baby gift -wrapped. Always parking, helpful but not hovering service and a serene shopping experience. The Country Mouse - sweet without being twee

Vintage Garden has it all ---- once you find your selection, it is then wrapped beautiful and ready to go to a happy recipient (even if it's a gift for yourself).

Vintage Garden is my "go to" place for gifts. Especially for those that are difficult to buy for!

Love vintage garden! Kathy and her staff are friendly, helpful with suggestions, then wrap everything beautifully! Plus, and this is a big plus...they truly make the most beautiful flower arrangements. It's a one stop shop when looking for a hostess, child's, or any age gift.

As a teacher, I love the books, items that Kathy has selected for children at Vintage Garden. Also, you ALWAYS find that "just right," item for those difficult people to buy for. Keep up the good work!
