One of the most beautiful facades in Downtown Medford! Generally open late on Third Fridays! These are just two of the many reasons we chose Bumble & Wren for our first Featured Partner. 

Bumble & Wren, owned by Cindi Hickey, offers a curated selection of home and garden treasures. Their collection features products from local Oregon artists, as well as popular brands like Barefoot Dreams and Maileg. They provide a world of happy and relaxed shopping where you can find candles, books, self-care essentials, decorative items, and the perfect gift for almost anyone on your list, including children.

You can indulge your green thumb with plants, gardening tools, and planters.  They carry a variety of air plants, terrariums, and garden accessories that are perfect for seasoned gardeners and beginners alike. Not a gardener? They have a gorgeous selection of house plants that will enhance any home décor.

Cindi bought the building at 231 East Main Street in August of 2019. It had formerly housed Downtown Market and for many years before that, John Nuich Jewelers. Cindi owned the Blue Door Garden Store in Jacksonville at the time and said she thought “opening a store in Medford would be a fun thing to do and also a ‘great leap.’ I think Downtown Medford has a real charm to it,” said Cindi.

Painting inside and out, new lighting in the awnings, and new signage made the building look like a “work of love.” When asked how she came up with the name Bumble and Wren, Cindi said “it’s a play on words – Bumble, instead of humble (which is what you have to be in retail), and Wren, which is similar to her granddaughter’s middle name.”

Bumble & Wren has been a DMA Partner since 2021. Cindi says she is “so impressed with the phenomenal job of marketing Downtown that Annie Jenkins, DMA Interim Executive Director, is doing and what she would most like to have happen in Downtown is MORE RETAIL!”

Cindi has Myah, her Chocolate Lab, with her whenever she works. Be sure to stop by Bumble & Wren on July 21 Third Friday and help celebrate Myah’s 11th birthday.
