I was looking for their site, but couldn't find one.  At least I found that article...

I grew up in Langhorne and used to drive by their shop all the time.  I have been meaning to drive by when I visit my parents.  I, too, looked for a website several months ago and even tried the yellow pages...dont think it is there anymore.  Wonder who is tending to the fronds nowadays.

Would love some those for my pool area Smiley  Anyone know if they're still in business?  If anyone hears anything, let all of us know.   Can you imagine my husband's reaction if he comes home and they're fake palms in my backyard? Roll Eyes

My husband bought me 2 little fake palms for my Wildwood room.  I think he got them at Home Depot but it was about 2 years ago.  My desk at work is Wildwoodized and I have a little palm photo stand on my shelf.  I love the fake palms.  Can't image Wildwood without them.

Hi everyone!
Happy Friday to all!
Can't be on here long as tonight is my night with my sons to help in our restaurant on the boards. Here is a good place to buy those fake palms. We have them around our pool at home and it was even free delivery.

This is where we got ours from.
Got to run, the boardwalk is packed tonight (i like to see that)
