A New Beginning for Vintage Garden Florist & Giftique in Fairfield

Charming Fairfield Florist and Giftique  Under New Ownership
Kleban Properties - From Landlord to Store Owner
July 15, 2019, Brick Walk Promenade, Fairfield, CT:  For 10 years, Fairfield’s Vintage Garden has been arranging stunning floral arrangements for weddings and celebrations. Its reputation as the go-to store for thoughtful, playful, and unique gifts has also contributed to the success of this charming giftique. Upon hearing the news of store owner Kathy Lee’s decision to retire, a surprise suitor began the process of taking over the store, with plans to continue with and enhance an already vibrant retail business.
Vintage Garden’s landlord, Kleban Properties, is now the proud new owner. A strong business supporter of their tenant, as well as a loyal customer, Kleban, along with added enthusiasm from the company’s marketing team, made the move to take ownership of Vintage Garden this past spring. Store manager Donna Jones and the entire staff will continue to run the day-to-day with added assistance from Kleban staff members.
“Kleban Properties thought it would be a shame for such a cherished store to close,” says Bailey Kleban, Manager of Kleban Ventures, “We are thrilled to have Donna running the show. She has been there since the store opened and is an artist when it comes to floral arrangements.”
The store has been brightened up with a fresh coat of paint, re-arranged fixtures, and a new floor plan. A strong focus is on bringing in brands that are women-owned, local, and that give back, as well as continuing to carry brands and vendors that have made Vintage Garden so loved for 10 years, as with their popular Fairfield-themed items and hostess gifts. Shoppers can look forward to perusing a curated selection of Scout bags, aromatic candles, fun wall hangings, fresh flowers, beach tunics, home goods, jewelry, and yes, those awesome Switchflops!
