Ella's Interiors & Gifts in the strip center in front of Londonderry has been open now for about three and ½ years. I saw it open and then preceded to drive by it almost every day for about 6 months before I finally decided I needed to go in and check it out. I'm surprised I waited that long we have lived in the area 11 years and having any type of convenient shopping has been a long time coming. (I can still remember when Randall's in Panther Creek was our closest grocery store.) Normally I go in to gift shops and walk right out but in this instance I was pleasantly surprised. The owner Suzzanne Ogrodowicz has put together a tasteful shop at reasonable prices.
To make a good thing even better Suzzanne has recently added a post office. This is a full service Tomball post office. I was a little surprised that being in the strip center in front of Londonderry would make it a Tomball Post Office instead of a Spring Post Office as Londonderry subdivision directly behind the strip center is a Spring mailing. I don't exactly understand how they decide where one mailing area ends and the other starts but nonetheless it is a Tomball post office.
For those of us that live in Augusta Pines, Coventry, Londonderry, The Preserve, Traditions or Wimbledon Country a post office is a major trek. Plus once you get there they all have long lines. I have waited for as long as 45 minutes to mail a package and that is not even during the Christmas season. When I go in to Ella's I may have one person in front of me. You do need to pay by cash or check. I have had to go back to my house after my check book but since it is so convenient it is no big deal. Now that I know I just try to keep a check in my billfold; as in this day and age I rarely write checks.
Post office hours are from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday and from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday. The actual store is open until 5:30.
While you are in the store you will want to check out all the unique gifts and interior design products. I love antiques and she has some great buys on antiques. Our Women's Church retreat was in Round Top during the antique festival this last year. I wanted to buy some kind of dresser to use to reduce a clutter area in my game room. I was so disappointed in what I saw and how expensive everything was. The week after the retreat I stopped in at Ella's and there was the perfect dresser and at a reasonable price. Here I drove an hour and a half looking for something that was in my own back yard.
They also have some great cards. I bought my Mother a Mother's Day card that brought tears to her eyes. Then I followed up with a wonderful Father's Day card. I'm not sure how I'm going to top those this next year. I guess when that time come I will need to go check her selection out.
If you are having trouble finding that special gift Suzzanne also makes custom gift baskets. As I said earlier I think for those of us that live in the communities of Augusta Pines, Coventry, Londonderry, The Preserve or Wimbledon Countrythis is quite the find. You can go buy your stamps, mail your packages and purchase that special gift all in one convenient store.
When I was in taking these pictures she told me she is going to start having weekly specials on different items in the store. Whatever season you happen to be in you will be able to find those special seasonal gift items at Ella's Interiors and Gifts.
