As many small businesses have, Nature Gallery sprang from a hobby shared by Norma Tager and her daughter Carol Garsten. They were both ardent lovers and collectors of rocks, minerals and crystals. So when their collection grew too big for private display, Norma and Carol opened their first shop in San Luis Obispo in 1987.
The store relocated to Palo Alto in 1994. Sadly, Normal passed away in 1996 leaving Carol as sole proprietor of the Gallery. Nature Gallery has hosted many special events & Carol has contributed to many community events and charitable foundations. Carol moved the Nature Gallery to downtown Los Altos in 2012.
In this large space, Carol displays dramatic pieces of natural art for the home, beautiful jewelry, and other specimens.
