The Ellis Family Tradition

Ellis is a family owned and operated company dating back to the late 1800's with its original roots in pottery manufacturing in Marshall, Texas. However, now a days things have changed quite dramatically with Ellis extending its product reach into all different aspects of Home Decor and Gardening. Ellis Home and Garden has been in business over 30 years beginning in Bossier City, La and eventually expanding into East Texas with a total of five retail locations. The Ellis' travel overseas twice a year to find just the right product for each season, typically trying to find the most unique and upcoming trends which is why our product mix is so unique.

Ellis has one of the most impressive greenhouse operations around, showing all types of product, from tropicals out of California to annuals and shrubs grown locally. Ellis also carries many seasonal items in the greenhouse from fresh cut pumpkins in the Fall to beautiful red poinsettias during Christmas.

Ellis' interior decorations are some of the best around. Ellis prides their stores on not only having a unique product selection, but also showing its customers how to best use this product with intricate displays throughout the entire store. We also have a huge selection in framed artwork, florals, giftware, ribbon, and candles including Yankee Candles and Circle 'E' Candles. However it is truly our seasonal departments that set us apart from the norm, especially our Christmas Shops!
