Ah, the Summerhouse is such a shopping treat! It is full of charm and each area is set up as a room in a cotage. Some pieces are antique and others are new. There are actual family phots strewn about in gorgeous frames, just where we might have them in our home like on the fireplace mantles or the side tables, etc. The women that run this place really know a thing or two about making it inviting. It's like visiting a friends home only everything is for sale. They have furniture, loads of decor, stationary, rugs, fabrics, toiletries, etc. It's an amazing place and every time I get to Greensboro, NC I have to stop in and see what's new and a must have. This past time, I came out with a lovely mirrored frame with a sketch of a dog that looks just like our Chance. I love it! This shop smells wonderful. It's truly a feast for all of the senses, well accept taste. hmmm...maybe they could serve us refreshments while we browse. lol
Are there any shops that you feel drawn to, like this? Oh and they hand giftwrap your items and make tem all pretty even if it's not a gift. Well, I like treating myself and unwrapping a purchase from there is like eating my favorite Dove milk chocolate bar. Yummy! Darnit now I'm hungry.
