Cellar Door Store

The Cellar Door Store (CDS) is an unusual gift shop that features an array of Victorian and other lovely gifts.

We rotate the stock regularly and revise displays to match the season and/or the current holiday. We have a lovely selection of Winter Holiday items currently for sale! Everything from china, ceramic figurines, ornaments, stocking stuffers, Victorian Christmas cards, and so much more…

CDS is open during regular tour times and for special events (see the Events page for upcoming and future programs). After a tour, enjoy complementary tea and cookies in the Cellar Door Store Parlor! The store is also open by “chance” or appointment. You do not have to tour Hower House Museum (and pay the tour fee) to shop here. CDS can be opened for your scheduled event/tour or by prior request.
