If you are a die-hard romantic you will love the exquisite
POSH ON PALM
a dream shop located on Palm avenue in the heart of Sarasota, Florida, historical district. My dear friends Susie and Mark Holt have been in business in Venice and Ellenton, Florida, for over 12 years. When the opportunity presented itself to relocate their famous shop (formerly known as The Cat's Meow) to downtown Sarasota they decided to make the move and also aptly renamed their venture POSH ON PALM. If travel plans bring you to our sunny city you won't want to miss the chance to treat yourself to the shop's gorgeous offerings.
Mark and Susie are revamping their website and it should be up and running soon. Keep checking www.poshonpalm.com for updates.
Meanwhile, here are a few examples sure to make your little romantic heart skip a beat or 2........
You don't have to be a ballerina to love these....(I got a pair myself!)
Check out these gorgeous pillows made from vintage textiles.........................
If you like clothes with character you might like to take a look at
a shop in the south of France. I have had the pleasure to visit it in person as it is located close to where my sister lives in Provence. They carry distinctive clothes as well as some home accessories. When you go on their site make sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of each page and click on"next page". You can also read the site in its English version. Here is a little sampling........
Since I am on the French thing it's only fitting to mention Laetitia Rissetto
and her wonderful online magazine. For a virtual trip of French homes, b&bs and shops just go to her site and click on the various departments. You can also read the English version as well as subscribe (it's free) to her features.
You can also access her magazine via her BLOG
and her own charming BED AND BREAKFAST
Another thing you DON'T want to MISS (If you have not already caught the fever....)
and their monthly street fair and flea market
