Gathering, Better Junque

Gathering, Better Junque
Willows, California

There was another stop I had planned to make on our quick road trip.
Each time we would drive down the I-5 highway and I saw the sign for Willows,
I would say one day I am going to stop there.
One of the blogs I have followed the longest is Tongue in Cheek,
so I knew this place of enchantment was there.
Corey's mom and a friend care and run this shop.
Tucked in back is a secret garden, where I chatted with Corey's mom as
she watered plants. I found the sweet bunny garden stake here.
Wherever we travel, I just love searching out antique shops to browse.
This one was a special treat and I know there will be stops here again.

Click on the pictures to see the details and enjoy, I know I sure did.

What a fun shop! I see some things I would grab right up, if I was there.

That's my kind of place! Most charming! I especially love the garden! I'm glad you were able to stop.

'Willows' is a great name for a shop.
I like the fact that there are plants
dotted around.

What a fun place to stop and browse. I love that "Blah, blah, blah" pillow...LOL.

How lucky to make a stop in Willows! Looks like there's some junque there that I would enjoy!

What a fun shop! So many things I'd like myself Marilyn, and like you I love to go into these treasure shops!

Once again we've visited the same place! We spent time with Delores at Gathering a couple of Summers back when on our drive to Lake Almanor. Isn't she just the sweetest lady, and her shop is awesome.

We HAVE to bump into each other one of these days Marilyn - it's in the cards I just know it! I'll give you my travel schedule - the upcoming planned journeys are rather far away - but I'll try to get to the Northwest again in the not too distant future - we really love your home area and must come that way soon!

Happy weekend dear friend - Mary

Hello Marilyn,
Thank you for stopping at my Mom's and Holly's shop and for your friendship. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. My Mom said she had a lovely visit with you and your husband. BTW:
My Mom LOVED your hairstyle, she said you are very chic!
Thanks for the write up on your blog about Gathering Better Junque!

I am so adding to my list for when I someday get into your part of the world! It's my kind of store.
