« My Take on Martha | Main | One More Shop - Crown and Crumpet »

February 15, 2010



Ooh, that flocked raspberry! I've seen that on their website and drooled over its loveliness. :) I love what you bought, thanks for showing us your treasures!

Sadie Lou

I feel like I went shopping with you!
How fun...I think I have been in that store Tale of the Yak. Back when I worked in an upscale furniture shop, the boss took us on a field trip to Moscone Center to the Trade Show and then a shopping trip in Berkley-they have great shops there! I love your little purchases...


What fun goodies!!! Don't you love "The Castle"-- I always spend so much time in there, looking at every wonderful detail! It's the best place to find foil dresden-- they have the best selection ever. I love the mushrooms that I found there, too! Thanks for the "show & tell"-- so much fun!
PS: Can't wait to see how your hat turns out!


What fun stores!! I love the mushrooms and the childrens silhouette:)


I just saw scissors like that in a magazine this month. Apparently they sell them for cutting fresh herbs. When I saw them though I immediately thought Herbs? No way! PAPER! I am glad to see I wasn't crazy...lol.


Those are the coolest scissors EVER! I've never seen them before, but I am going to be on the lookout for them.

My chances of getting over to the West Coast are pretty nil anytime soon, so I will just live vicariously through your posts! Thanks!!!


No trips to CA planned for me either - so thanks for the tour. You find the lovliest, quirkiest stuff ev-uh. I love it all!


What no crepe paper purchase at Castle in the Air?!!!
I love that place! Wish I was there in person though--the COOLEST SCISSORS EVER. Would love to see them in action!
Now you are making me want to come North!

Vintage Christine

Yup--I'm definitely going to visit all those shops when I come out to SF later this year. You had an amazing trip!!!!

Carol @ Old Glory Cottage

Wow, what a great assortment of goodies, Laurie! That cardboard trellis is amazing, and those scissors are just full of possibilities. One request: please model the hat and add it to the little gallery on your sidebar. You know you want to!

Kim G.

Looks like you had so much fun, love all of the paper ephemera! Hard to beat Alameda flea market. Next time I'll meet you for a day in the city! XO!


Oh wow! What cool treasures! You certainly have an eye for the treats. :)

I look forward to swapping with you in Shara's Egg swap.
