Shop Our Newest Arrivals - We Love to Support Indie Designers

We are on a constant search for amazing products. When we search we look for several things. First the products have to be cruelty free, we prefer vegan but if they are ethically sourced we will most likely approve if they fit our standards, eco friendly, non toxic and natural products are something we will always consider first. If the products are made by indie designers or are handmade then they score high on our list. We love to support the creators and designers and love to support businesses just starting out. We test every product and if they pass our tests then we introduce them to the store. When we say we hand select everything it is not just a marketing gimmick it is the entire truth. Nothing goes in that we do not test and if something does not hold up to our standards we pull the line. We want you to shop with confidence and trust that we are selling what we truly love and use that has been our policy from day one. We also listen to our customers if we love something but feedback is not good we listen, document and then reevaluate the line. We then discuss the issues with the designers and if necessary pull the line. We take our products that seriously. We just do not attend a gift show and buy whatever is trendy as a matter of fact you will hardly ever find us at a commercial gift show that is just not how we shop. You may find lines that are popular in our store but those are products that we have tested and loved. 

We stumbled upon Happy Spritz searching for natural essential oil sprays. When we read that they are vegan/cruelty free and then they support animal rescue say no more. We had to give it a try and we feel in love. These make a great gift for just about anyone. You can keep one in each room and in your bag or suitcase too. Shop the Happy Spritz Collection by visiting our new Essentials Collection in our Apothecary Shop.

We are always looking for natural cosmetics. We refuse to put on lipstick or any makeup for that fact that has chemicals in it. We also will not support animal cruelty and most mass products out there are tested on animals. So our search is always on. We found Noyah and just love everything about this brand. The colors are gorgeous, the packaging so cool and eco friendly! They are not vegan since they have ethically sourced beeswax but they are an ethical company. You can find Noyah products in our shop or shop here to view the collection

We are nature lovers and love to give eco and sustainable gifts. When we found Modern Sprout we fell in love. How cute are these Spruce trees? Gift the gift of nature this year with a gift from Modern Sprout. We have the Spruce in a can, Lavender in a can and a collection for the chef of Basil, Sage Parsley and Mint in a grow jar. They were featured on Oprah's Favorite Things this year so they will sell out fast. Shop the Modern Sprout Collection here

Don't forget to check back frequently as new arrivals come in. Just this week we have amazing candles from a tree farm coming in for the holidays, two new makeup lines and eco friendly baby gifts. 

We offer free shipping over 50.00 and free gift wrap.

Happy Shopping!

Do you have any other shops?
No. But we did have a fun vintage shop in Ocean Grove New Jersey called Kitch and Kaboodle before we opened Lavender Fields.

Now a little about me you may have not known...
I am a single mom with a beautiful 9 year old daughter. Ava Rose was raised in our store so all the locals remember her from when she was a little baby. She now loves helping me in the shop and can often be found showing customers all of her favorite things. We live in a historic house in Port Jefferson village we which are lovingly restoring for years! We took a break from restoration work but will be back at it soon and will feature all our projects on the blog. I am a vegan and Ava is a vegetarian (almost vegan at this point). We love animals and have a wonderful fun dog named Harry who we rescued from a bad place in 2004 and we also have several funny cats their photos pop up now and then on our instagram feed. We also rescue cats and do tnr in our neighborhood. I am on the board of a non-profit called Port Jefferson Cat Care with my good friend and local natural doctor Doni Wilson. Visit our instagram page for more info pjcatcare.

I grew up traveling the world with my parents and sister so I have always had a love for travel and a love for finding unique products. My dad had a passion for antiques so we would often spend our time at antique markets and yard sales. We grew up going to a cabin in Smallwood, New York right outside of Bethel the site of Woodstock. We spent our summers in the country and loved it.

I am passionate about finding a cure for lyme disease. I contracted lyme on a hike in 1995 and went undiagnosed for years. I spend a lot of my free time trying to help others with lyme find the care they need. Ava and I both love art, music and yoga and you can find us in the yoga studio at least once a week and we practice at home daily. When we are not working, going to school or practicing yoga we are off creating something or taking a walk in our beautiful town.

I think that covers it! Glad to share a little of my history and answer some questions about Lavender Fields!

Lori and Ava Rose
