The Woods Gifts > History

History

The Woods started in 1985 as "Davlins - Fine Crafted Gifts of Wood" store in an old mattress factory on the Minneapolis waterfront, which had been turned into an upscale mall. Our selection included handcrafted furniture and decor from individual artists all over the United States.

From there we grew to three stores in the Twin Cities area by 1987, and in 1997 we built a new concept store called "The Woods" in Maple Grove, Minnesota. For this new store we expanded our merchandise selection beyond wood gifts to include pottery, candles, home accessories and more. The concept went over so well that we added the new merchandise selections to our stores in Rosedale Center in Roseville, Minnesota and Southdale Center in Edina, Minnesota.

We continue to grow our collection of unique, high quality merchandise, and look forward to offering you new items both online and in our stores.

For this new store, we expanded our merchandise selection beyond wood gifts to include pottery, candles, home décor and more.

If your remember us for our large selection of kaleidoscopes, we suggest you visit Kaleido.com, the new home of Kaleidoscopes of America.
