Vine’s Creek Nursery is bringing big changes to its Frankford location. Its new building, the FlutterBy House, offers both unique shopping and picturesque views 8 miles west of Bethany Beach, just off of Omar Road. A ribbon-cutting to celebrate the shop’s opening was held on Friday, May 15, with a grand opening ceremony the next day that featured a live butterfly release.
“I’d like to introduce our new home and garden store at Vine’s Creek Nursery: The FlutterBy House,” said owner Tom Lowe, “It’s a unique store with unique gifts and foods. We’re very excited about it.”
The FlutterBy House offers everything from lamps and wreaths to birdhouses, sunhats, wind chimes and other décor. Also in stock are fresh Amish baked goods, including pies, breads, cakes, sticky buns, whoopie pies, fudge, gourmet popcorn, cookies, cream cheese spreads and more.
“I was very lucky to find a distributer who will drop it off every week.” said manager Becky Jones.
The fresh Amish goods are delivered straight from Lancaster every Thursday. After shopping and sampling, customers can relax on the front porch and take in the scenery or head out back to a very special garden that will be located just behind the FlutterBy House.
“We’re going to have a big walkthrough butterfly garden,” Jones explained, “There will be benches and a fountain so people can be in the garden.”
The FlutterBy House, located at 31854 James Lowe Road, east of Frankford, is open Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (302) 732-6159.
