Ornamental concrete. People come in and they want to dress up their yard… just a little touch here, a little touch there, but don't overdo it. That … cheapens everything.
—Pat Gulden, merchant
“Gnomes R Us” excerpt from “People Like Us: Social Class in America”
Pat Gulden runs the largest concrete lawn-ornament store on the Eastern Seaboard. Her showroom includes everything from fountains and angels to hundreds of gnomes and leprechauns, gazing balls, and lawn jockeys. It's a product with strong blue-collar appeal, and Pat gives us a tour, defending the God-given right to put elves in one's front yard.
