Hi, it’s Bonnie.
Hope your weekend was as good as ours. We were out visiting stores Friday and Saturday so, today, Sunday, is really a day of rest!!! Not just for us, for the poor car as well. It’s absolutely our pleasure to try to get to as many places as we can.
Friday we were at Fourth Street Antiques @4thstreetantiques in Temecula. The store was so well done, warm and welcoming. Lynn from Sweet Peas Charm @sweetpeascharm gave a workshop outside about her plaster paint with a make ‘n take. It was the cutest frame to put a picture of your pet for the tree. Inside the store we were amazed at all the vendors who dressed up their booths and brought in new pieces. And then there was the luscious buffet they set up–oh that cheesecake!!! They had a great crowd and it’s easy to see why. Drop by and see their trees and Dickens figures, they are so perfect. And put the open house on your calendar for next year, we are!!!!
Saturday was a packed full day. First off to So. Pasadena again. We stopped in at Lloyd and Lane @lloydandlane address is 1026 Fair Oaks. They have changed to their Christmas decor and are having a sale. They told us about a holiday open house they are having. It will be Nov. 29 from 5-8. What fun! Hope to see some of you there.
We next stopped at a private house having an event called Lavender Marketplace in Sierra Madre. We were surprised at how many vendors we knew. Erika was there from She Sheds. @shesheds_thebook She has a book with She Sheds from different places out, (Hint, hint good Christmas gift for a friend), and is working on another book right now. Also there, Dragonfly Dreams @dragonflydreams and the junk diva @thejunkdiva and many other vendors. This is a gorgeous gorgeous house and they give workshops with a magnificent lunch, hope we can go sometime. Check it out at @lavendermarketplaceworkshops.
To finish we ended up at Shabbyology, one of our favorites. @shabbyology 534 E Edna Pl Covina. Open Fri Sat Sun. Oh, there is so much Christmas there!!!! We wanted to buy it all. Check out pictures on our Instagram.
Coming up we are headed out to the places on the flyers pictured throughout this blog. Try to get to some or all of these. It is uplifting to get out and talk to vendors and gets you in the holiday spirit. We see old friends and make new ones, get ideas, and support small business. Amy and I see that as our mission and hope you enjoy hearing about and visiting these stores and vendors with us.
Thanks for reading…Bonnie and Amy
