Meet the Shopkeeper, Linda Corapi-Bolles
The Gallery-gift store is the owner's retirement from over thirty years designing landscapes for residential and commercial properties. Linda spent years presenting perennial gardening and offered a virtual garden tour for gardeners. She also creates cards, jigsaw puzzles and note cards from her garden photography. After enduring the outdoor elements in a tent stand, throughout the NE art circuit and Farmers Markets , she realized she liked it enough to find and inside location. The Gallery provides a venue that also supports other artist friends and family.
This unique gallery has become a small boutique to fit the needs of people who work in the professional complex. The gallery carries work by over 200 artists and american craftsmen. Local painting artists can display their work for a 6-8 week period. Some consignment is offered to family and local artists, but the majority is hand selected by the owner Linda. But it also carries a wide range of designer separates, formal and evening dresses as well as a mix & match, travel friendly woman's apparel.
Linda is the Mother of two adult children. She enjoys gardening, photography, hiking, flower design, sewing, crafting, creating leaded glass windows decorating and staging homes. Linda has operated Gardens Galore since 1998 and expanded into retail with the opening of the Gallery in October of 2015
Linda brings a lifetime of horticulture and design, along with a love of nature and art to Gardens Galore. Linda, also a full-time Realtor for RE/MAX Andrew Realty in Stoneham, MA, licensed since 1988.
