THe Garden Gate is a unique shop hidden on a quiet mainstreet in downtown Alta, IA. Their Christmas collection of gifts is extensive and they have the same unique added touch you are looking for for your home all year round. The staff offers something of everything yet it all blends together. The store has quaint jewelry, collectables, candles and cards. My wife and I like to browse and find gifts for friends. The prices are good and the shop is easy to find.
