Ginger is the owner of the Ritters Garden & Gift. She started helping people in the medical field as a Registered Nurse. Fast forward to 2008 when she fulfilled her dream of owning a retail store and purchased Ritters to help people in a different way. "I believe that plants are therapeutic and so beneficial." She has shifted her focus to a natural way of healing people with plants. 



Denise started a new adventure when Ginger decided to take on her dream and started as the store manager. She is the buyer to chooses all the amazing gifts and unique things that come through the store! 



Marcy is the founder of the Garden Spot Nursery. She grew up loving plants and over 35 years ago decided to start selling greens and tied wreaths in her garage. Fast forward to 1985 when she opened up the first Garden Spot Nursery in the Wallingford Center in Seattle. She opened up a second location in Sunnyland Square in Bellingham. This location grew very fast and a few years later she moved to the current location on the corner of King and Alabama. During that time, she sold the Wallingford location to devote herself fully to the Bellingham store.
