Great selection for guys looking for a gift for their wife on a moments notice.
Probably the best store in the area for finding something of really high quality that is unique and sure to please your wife or girlfriend. You can walk in there and find something in 10 minutes that you won't find anywhere else. The service is great too!
Bad customer service.
I have shopped at Ivy Cottage for many years and have been a very good customer. Great place to find home accessories and gifts but I have to tell you the service can be very inconsistent. I have had some great really nice ladies help me but the manager at the Cary store is downright rude. She obviously has no idea how to speak to customers and make them feel welcome. If you have a question on an item she makes you feel like you are just downright bothering her and has a very curt demeaning way of speaking to you. She is hardly friendly and I honestly don't know how he could work in a customer service business.
Most Unique Home Store in the Area.
I love going to the Ivy Cottage. It is a fun and warm place to shop and the assortments are great. I can always find something special there when I am looking for a gift.
An Outstanding Store.
We have known Lisa Scalese since she was a teenager and her Ivy Cottage retail stores/decorating business of Cary NC since its inception. We have shopped at the original Cottage store and have received numerous gifts from other Ivy Cottage clients. The variety, quality and display appeal of gift and decorating accessories is simply superior to almost every of the thousands of retail stores we have visited around the world.
The Ivy Cottage is an outstanding showcase for Lisas decorating skills and captures her creativity, tastes and style.
To negative reviewers we say shame on you. Next time print your name and contact information. Ours follow and we heartedly advise anyone in the Raleigh area to do yourselves a big favor - stop by either store and meet Lisa.
Highly recommended: Great Experience.
New location for a local favorite. Love the convenient location, attractive exterior and inviting displays. The new coffee bar enhances the pleasant, relaxed atmosphere...allowing a pleasant perusal of unique merchandis. The smart gift wrap makes your gift giving doubly well received. The easy access and parking is great, and the drive through coffee bar is a bonus.
Always something new. You can find things here that just aren't available anywhere else. Lots to choose from at all price points..
I found the Ivy Cottage to be spectacular. You can find neat things for the home in that store that can't be found anywhere else. Couldn't be happier with the items I picked and the manner in which I was served. I will be a regular shopper.
My husband and I used Lisa, the owner of Ivy Cottage, extensively with redesigning the interior of our home. I could not have been happier with the any of the selections - from colors, to fabrics, to furniture ideas, to the littlest details on how to accessorize. She came to my home repeatedly to help through all of the decision making and couldn't have been more professional. Best experience I have yet for something like this.
