~ shopping and store events~

I have enjoyed some recent opportunities to get out of the house and visit some of my favorite local home decor shops. Just Thursday evening, a close to home favorite antiques and home decor store called Petunia's in Excelsior Minnesota hosted a fall open house.

The open house featured a demonstration by a local stylist (Tom Brandt) on creating your own fall harvest centerpiece. Tom's work was amazingly beautiful.

The centerpiece's foundation was two vintage swans which were surrounded by all sorts of natural elements - cabbage, pepper berries and even brussel sprout stalks!

Then a couple weeks ago I took a little solo road trip to a store that I had heard about and wanted to visit for some time. Called the Round Barn Potting Co. the store is housed in literally a round barn. The owner Lori, has filled the store with all sorts of vintage and new treasures for the home.

Lori is particularly fond of Halloween so the store is just decked out! Lori is warm and friendly and has such a great style and abilility to pull it all together in such a cohesive way!

How cool is the Elm St. sign?

Hope you have the opportunity to get out and enjoy visiting your favorite spots this weekend!

  1. Ooooh, I want to go shopping there! My trip to the Commissary and BJ's weren't nearly as exciting.


  2. The sun is shining here in Oregon today! Becky and I snuck out for a few hours and hit Tarte's barn sale, then off to Monticello for shopping and yummy chicken pot pie, then over to Classic Antique and Portland Antiques! What a fun day! I haven't done that in a long time!! Hope you are feeling better! Allie
