Did You Know? Questions and Answers and an FYI About Lavender Fields

We get a lot of questions by email and social media and wanted to answer some of the top questions on our blog for you. So lets go....

How long have you been in business?
We started Lavender Fields in 2001! So 16 years! We cannot believe how many years have past by already! We love our business and love our customers!

Do you have a retail shop?Yes we do! We are located in the charming historic town of Port Jefferson on the north shore of long island. We also call this town home and live minutes away from the shop in a historic home. Our home has been featured in Romantic Living Magazine a few times. Click here to take the tour of our home for the holidays.

Do you offer trade discounts?
Yes we do! Visit this page to register for trade discounts.

Do you have an affiliate program?Yes we do! Visit this page to sign up for our affiliate program.

Do you offer interior design services?
Yes we do! We offer design services locally and anywhere in the states and the world with our online design services.

Can I receive samples of bedding, rugs, fabric, wallpaper and wood samples?
Yes you can! Contact us and we would be glad to send you samples.

Do you ship worldwide?
Yes we do! We have some restrictions so it is best to contact us first to inquire if we can ship a certain product.

Do you gift wrap?
Yes we do! We offer free gift wrap. Just let us know at checkout. Some large items or items shipping direct from our manufacturers cannot be gift wrapped.

Why do you focus on vegan products?We are vegans and our bath and body products are mostly vegan. Each will state it in the item description. We also only offer cruelty free products. None of our bath and body products or candles are tested on animals. Ever!

Do you give back?
Yes we do! We donate to many local charities as well as charities that are close to our heart.

Do you collaborate with bloggers?
Yes we do! Contact us for more information.

Do you stand behind your products?
Yes we do! We personally hand select every vendor and every product. Before we work with a vendor we ask a lot of questions and look at the products and how they are made. Our home is filled with the products we sell so we do test our products!

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!
