With 22 years in the gardening industry, having worked previously as a grower and gift shop manager at Hollandia Nurseries in Bethel, CT  – Guaman said she knew then that she wanted to incorporate her passions into a space like JohnBela’s Gift and Gardening.

“It comes naturally, i’m here to serve the customers and help with the design.”

“I like to make everyone happy, to teach people how to create gardens, how to do arrangements,” 

Guaman changes a wide variety of items each holiday season. Christmas brings in holiday ornaments, Christmas lights, and nativities. As the seasons change so will the items! You can find all of your Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and  Mother &  Father’s day items as well!
