Small business spotlight: Hydrangea Home

Business by: Chrissy Ruggeri, December 1, 2021

Dawn Mohrmann began selling handcrafted home goods out of her garage in Kings Park in 1995. She called her space “Hydrangea Home” because of the many large hydrangeas she had on her property. “People used to come shopping out of the garage,” Dawn said. “I was home with the kids, so we wanted to do it there.” Her business has continued to be a family effort ever since; in 2017, she set up her first brick and mortar “down the alley” on Main Street in Northport Village and now occupies a much larger space at 67 Main Street, also in the Village.

Dawn’s husband, Fred, is in charge of building and assembling store furniture, while the couple’s four children, Taylor, Max, Jake and Sophia, all contribute to the shop’s handcrafted and unique inventory. Taylor creates macrame pieces that can be found throughout the store, Max contributes with his nature photography, Jake makes beaded bracelets and Sophia is responsible for many of the illustrations in the space. “They all have their own little side thing” in addition to their full-time jobs or school work, said Dawn.

There’s something very peaceful about shopping at Hydrangea Home, like the love that goes into curating the space is left in the air for its customers. It’s truly a creative space that’s perfect for finding a thoughtful gift. For the holiday season, Dawn is designing special gift baskets, creating unique floral arrangements and hand painting ornaments, among other creative pursuits.

Hydrangea Home is open Sunday and Monday from 11am to 5pm and Wednesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm. She’s closed on Tuesdays so that she can spend that time creating new products for the space.
