Everyone has their favorite shops. Two of my favorite ones occasionally mail postcards to announce special events and holiday happenings. At Shelby’s Garden in San Carlos and The Holiday House in Burlingame, everything in those stores is inspirational. From house decor to ribbons and jewelry; furnishings and faux food to the most incredible window displays.
When I visit those stores, I want to buy everything. I might buy a few things or just browse to fill up my creative well. More often than not, I’m just browsing but it feels so good to be in such a creative environment.
Each summer, Shelby’s Garden has a parking lot sale where they sell past merchandise as well as display items. I love to peruse all of it looking for bargain treasures. A great find in past years was a pair of orange French fishing chairs. You never know what you might find!
