Given the fact that gnomes are such short and stout little fellows, even an inch of snow can really stop them in their tracks. It is a prudent notion to have a trusty snow shovel conveniently placed near the front stoop for digging out. The Polka Dot Snow Shovel is made of metal and is both practical and decorative. The handle and squared off shovel are both retro red in color, while the shaft is avocado green and covered with whimsical polka dots. The exterior has a distressed finish, giving the Polka Dot Snow Shovel a seasoned vintage feeling. Consider leaning the winter necessity up against the front porch railing or near the front door of the fairy house where it will be handy when the snow falls.
