The Green Gecko Store in Lyndhurst
When you enter The Green Gecko, you'll find me, Terri Dawson, with a smile and friendly "hello". From the start, my husband, Peter, and I were captivated by the beauty of Lyndhurst and area. We felt that a bold shop with unique items would draw people to experience that beauty first hand. Each year we spend time in South East Asia scouring the streets and markets in what we call "treasure hunting". We are searching for unique and one-of-a-kind items to bring back to you. Our vision includes supporting the small production artisans we meet on our travels and seeking out local artisans and products, to create The Green Gecko, a shop like no other!
A place with just the right mix and something for everyone.
The Green Gecko Online Store
In 2005 my husband and I purchased a 1860-70's built house in a small town in rural Ontario, Canada. We make our home on the 2nd floor and the first floor is our shop. The Green Gecko. Inventory is constantly changing and evolving. The 'treasure hunt' of finding new pieces is what we love best! The online store features select items from our retail store . Every item listed has been personally chosen. All are unique and many are one-of-a-kind. Currently the online store focuses on Sterling Silver Jewelry but we are expanding into other lines. We travel through South East Asia every year and find a large part of the collection there. The jewelry is created in Thailand, India, Nepal and Laos. The people and culture of Asia have touched our hearts and we love our time spent there. We put significant effort into ensuring all our purchases are ethical and fair priced to the locals. We hope you find the choices as interesting as we do! If you don't see what you're looking for contact us, maybe your treasure is hiding in our store somewhere.
