Main Street Trolley Flowers and Gifts is a historic gift shop located in the old trolley barn next to HC Summers in Jefferson, MD.
Here, we strive to provide quality hand-crafted goods to our community – and by doing so, we support local artists, artisans, and craftsmen both new and old. The Trolley is a wonderful place to begin your holiday shopping, as we have unique gifts that will suit even the difficult to shop for! We feel here that the arts are vital to the community and culture. Most importantly, we foster a warm environment that is as much about friendship as it is about our crafts.
