How 'Bout A Little Weekend Shopping?






Are you ready for some splendidly delicious eye candy? Or perhaps you would like to go and check this sweet treat out for yourself!!! What am I talking about? Annie's Cottage! Yes, I said Cottage and it is a little cottage full of beautiful things to buy.

From the outside to the inside of this wonderful shop, you will be in awe over the great things for sale. The front yard is FULL of garden items like fences, wire trellis', fountains and benches.

As you enter the cottage your senses will be engaged. The pleasant aroma of candles and soaps fill the air. Just ahead of me was the most spectacular bird cage that I have ever seen! Huge! It was full of all sorts of fun things as well! As I roamed from room to room I kept thinking about everyone who would love this place. The pictures will tell you why!

Lisa, (A Thing For Roses Lisa) you have to see the mosaic backsplash in the kitchen. It is all you ~ Tickled Pink!!!!

Barbara Garcia is the shop's owner. Roberta Bane (shown in the photo) also sells her items at the cottage. I was lucky to find a vintage landscape picture and some fun little things to add to my blog giveaway.

Enjoy your virtual shopping tour. Better yet, if you'd like to experience this wonderful shop it is located at:

103 Alameda
San Juan Bautista, California

(831) 623-2004

Hours: Saturday and Sunday 11 AM - 5 PM

Why do all of these shops have to be clear across the country? Well at least I can shop virtually. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend?

I just wish I could squish right through the monitor. You know you are bad when you crane your neck as if you just might be able to see around a corner (other than your monitor) if you lean in close enough! Hey, when did you stick that picture up? You are so pretty! ps - I posted a better pic of the cat cloche and a note for you.

Hugs,
Dena

Oh my gosh it's all gorgeous!! I WISH I could go! California seems to have so many wonderful, wonderful shops. It was CA right?? But the Midwest is a great place to be in the Fall too. Lots of barn sales! Have a wonderful Sunday. Blessings... Polly

California definitely has the beautiful stores. All of our antique stores are the old fashioned dark no creativity displaying kind of decors. I love this virtual shopping. It's easy on my pocket book, too ;-)
