NARRAGANSETT- Just in time for the holiday season, BayScape Nursery has opened its new retail location at 933 Boston Neck Road.
Owners Barry Mills and Ed Fishell, both natives of Narragansett who were raised just down the road in Mettatuxet, opened the doors to the public last Friday. Construction on the new building, adjacent greenhouse and surrounding property took just over nine months to complete. Bayscape was originally located about a mile north behind the Saunderstown post office.
"It's a more convenient location for everyone," said Fishell during a recent interview. "We are much more visible now and more people will see what we have to offer here. Plus it means a lot to Barry and I that we grew up so close to the place.
This time of the year BayScape specializes in Christmas trees, handmade wreaths and centerpieces, candles, and gifts like ornaments, hand-made jewelry and organic body care products.
"All our products are either made here on site or brought in from other local vendors," said Fishell, who credits the creative team of Holly Mills, Jennifer Albamonti, and Jennifer Wells with organizing the Christmas theme.
"They all are doing a great job, especially on the wreaths which have a coastal theme to them and include things like seashells and starfish," said Fishell. "They really give the inside of the place a creative theme. No two wreaths are the same."
