Nowadays, the Garden
Shed is known for its emphasis on outdoor living,
and also as a place to pause and slow down.
Before starting Cambria Garden Shed, owners Ashley and Lucky Gracey had backgrounds in retail and landscaping. In 1998, the cou- ple opened The Shed, fulfilling their dreams of sharing the outdoors together every day. “Our aim has always been to keep the loveliness of nature and gardens in our shop space. We love the ideal weather of the Central Coast, and abundance of songbirds, deer, and wildlife
found in this area,” said Ashley. Cambria Garden Shed has of-
fered Cambrians unique finds and merchandise found nowhere else on the coast since first opening the doors. They carry new and vintage pieces for the garden and home. Old farm tables and cupboards display the goods and visitors find rustic farmhouse decor around every corner. The owners have an eye for high-quality goods, such as leather gloves for gardening, hand tools from Holland, and lotions that will heal dry hands. Cambria Garden Shed always has an abun- dance of one of a kind pottery, great fountains and a warm and inviting atmosphere.
The shops have inspirational pieces for everyone, and staff is ready to help find that special something. Customers can find pleasure while listening to local guitarists and musicians who stop in regularly to perform. Cambria Garden Shed is the perfect place to take a break from life, relax, and socialize while enjoying a little inspiration.
The Shops at the Garden Shed are located at 2024 Main St. in Cambria. Open daily from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. For more information, call (805) 927-7654 or visit
