I would bet that if I asked you what your favorite place to shop is, you could list quite a few. We all have those stores that we shop at the most. A grocery store, a favorite clothing boutique, a favorite space in an antique mall or a darling shop that is filled with wonderful items that tug at your heart. One of my favorite stores is in a town about an hour and a half from home. It is The Antique Gardener in Sutter Creek, California. Sutter Creek is a historic gold mining town and has an abundance of wonderful shops to spend a day meandering through.
The Antique Gardener is owned and operated by the creative genius, Aimee Peterson. The historic building is the perfect setting for Aimee’s antique and vintage home and garden collections. Out in the “back yard” are plants for sale along with other items to use outside. As you stroll through the store you will be treated to creative vignettes, scents of fresh lavender and soaps and below your feet the old floors will give a little squeak now and then. A charming place indeed to while away some time and to find that perfect treasure to take home.
From watering cans to old chippy green paint shutters – to linens, rusty metal tables and chairs – soaps, plants and yard stakes….French linen pillows, grain sack pillows…..well, you will see as you scroll through the photos.
The Antique Gardener is located at:
