Meet the Owner of The Crabby Nook®

My name is Brenda, and I am the owner and product designer, of The Crabby Nook®. In 1998, I retired from my career in law enforcement and started my second stage in life. People think when you retire you will just relax, travel and spend time with your grandkids...Not me! In addition to those fun things, I started a business selling online. We then grew to traveling to China to fill up containers of hand crafted items for the garden, home and office to sell from our warehouse in Kansas City.

eBay had just started and eBay encouraged my Entrepreneurial spirit. That, I thank eBay for. It was fun opening a store and finding garden statuary that others LOVED too! I have met people from all walks of life. Things were rolling along and then BAM! I got sick. I was sick for ten years taking chemo, having surgeries and taking different treatments. We got rid of the warehouse and downsized our business because I really did not think I was going to make it...but, Guess What?! I did and then I thought, now what do I do? I decided to sell small home and garden items and started designing products. Off to re-build my business I ran...


Today, The Crabby Nook®, is still a small business, but, we are a trademarked brand company that sells Home & Garden decor items. We strive to manufacture quality items that you will fall in LOVE with! Due to the pandemic we were unable to keep our staple products in stock due to border closures. So, we decided to expand our The Crabby Nook Garden Collection. Please be sure to check out our new Rain Gauges. We think they are unique and perfect for the person with a small deck or patio.


We use the Lotus flower as our LOVE symbol in our company, The Lotus represents Purity, Compassion and Love,” because we know that you feel the same way about your friends and family too. We make each product with our love and send it to you to share with your most intimate and close friends and family. From our family to yours, with LOVE.

In our spare time we spend a lot of time with our grandkids and taking cruises. My philosophy is that life really is too short and I want to experience every minute. Let us know if you have any questions. We hope you join The Crabby Nook® friends to follow our specials and new deals. We are so glad you are here and we hope to see you around for a very long time!

See you shopping soon!
