WILTON, Conn. -- The giant red snails that grace the entrance of Marvin Gardens on Route 7 in Wilton will be heading for the hills when the garden center closes its gates for good on April 15.  

Famed for its iconic and unique collection of home and garden antiques, Marvin Gardens will be open daily until then from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by phone at 203-856-0309 for all those treasure-hunters searching for something special at drastically reduced prices.  

“We are reinventing ourselves and will focus on Internet sales, antique and garden shows as well as private events and client services," said Amabel Chan of Wilton, the creative force behind the Gardens. 

"My journey, here, has been filled with experiences, adventures and amazing people. It is bittersweet as I close the garden gates. I have met so many people that have enriched my life in such wonderful ways.”   

Over the years, Marvin Gardens has been known for its unique finds. Stroll through the gardens and discover big and small vintage bird cages, ornate stone and iron urns, French-inspired garden gates, baskets of antique silverware and herds of artfully crafted farm animals, which are all part of a collection of beautiful objects that convey a sense of individuality.

“At Marvin Gardens we have amassed a collection of truly unique objects for home and garden that convey a strong sense of individuality. Our design philosophy encourages risk taking and willingness for clients incorporate the unusual and unexpected elements," Change said. 

"We will continue to create, not follow trends in our new business footprint."
