COLUMBINE HOME

Welcome to Columbine

 

Located in Town Center, Corte Madera, our store is filled with beautiful things for everyday life.ᅠ  You’ll find a wonderful selection of personal accessories, ceramics, glassware, bath and personal care items, as well as larger home accessories and furniture.

 

Come pick out something beautiful for yourself or as a gift for a special someone and enjoy complimentary gift wrap on all your purchases.

 

As owner of Columbine, I want to share with you some of what inspires me to do what I do.

 

Columbine is about savoring those things made with care and craftsmanship.  We want the things that you bring home to enhance your enjoyment of time with friends and family.  We want you to experience buying something, loving it, and using it as part of your everyday life.

 

My mom was responsible for my appreciation of beauty.  We didn’t grow up in great luxury, yet everything we had was quality and was used daily and cared for.  Her things were very simple, yet had an aesthetic component to them.  Everything she had was kept with its function and the beauty of life in mind.

 

I have maintained a desire to capture that kind of environment and share it with people as it brought me so much appreciation and enjoyment of life.  I’ve wanted to share that sense of beauty that she always saw in the world.

 

 

Complimentary gift wrapping that’s both unique and beautiful

 

We want our customers and their friends and family to experience feeling as if their wrapped packages from Columbine are a gift in themselves.  The bonus is the special something that’s inside.  It doesn’t need to be something expensive or extravagant, it just needs to be something that makes them feel as if somebody hand picked something and wanted to make it memorable.

 

 

The Columbine name

 

The Columbine flower has always been my favorite.  It’s an absolutely beautiful, intricate, delicate, one-of-a-kind flower.  The first time I saw one I couldn’t believe something this unique and beautiful came from nature.  So when I was ready to open my store, naming it Columbine seemed a perfect match for that unique, one of a kind experience I was looking to offer my customers.

 

 

Your experience as a customer in the store

 

I think my absolute favorite reaction of a customer is having them look around the store once, maybe twice or more, and have them bring something up to the counter to purchase - sometimes it's nothing at all - and while they’re at the counter, they let us know that they love coming into the store.  They love coming in because it makes them happy.  That communication alone is the greatest feeling for me.  That's why I do what I do.

 

I hope you come visit us soon and experience for yourself the beauty of being around beautiful things for every day life.
