My Friend's Gift Shop

Hello everyone, hope all of you had a wonderful day today.
Well today I would like to show you a darling gift shop that belongs to a very dear friend of mine who I have known for about 30 years. It is located here in So. CA and close to my home. Country Gifts 5911 Temple City Blvd. Temple City, CA 91780 ... She offers vintage shabby furniture, seasonal decor, fine tea accessories and handmade items. If you are ever in this area, please do stop by. Here are a few pictures that I took just today when I stopped by for a visit.
This is painted on the side wall of the shop.


This cute cow is in front of shop, along with hand painted bird bath and doves behind it, see the squirrel on that tree stump to the left?

She has plenty of china in lovely color combinations.

Lovely glass cabinet with pretties inside.

Wow! aren't these so very pretty...



Cute body form holding jewelry.

Look at this beautiful chandelier hanging in a corner of the shop.

I love this antique vanity.

Valentine displays.



These lavender pieces are just precious.

Here are some vintage items.

Hope you have enjoyed visiting Country Gifts owned by Betty Consolli, perhaps some day you will be able to visit in person. Till next time...

  12. Hello Lu,

    What a beautiful blog you have! Thank you for following my blog. I've never been here before but i will be here more often now i'm sure ;-) I love the roses and shabby style just like you do and I'd love to visit that shop as well. They sure have beautiful things for sale. I love that chintz china set with those pink roses. What a dream! Have a wonderful day and enjoy all pretty things!

  13. Lu,
    Your friend's shop is so lovely. I especially like the china with the pink roses on them. The body form is so pretty with all the jewelry dangling from it. Charming little shops like this one are always a treat to visit. Have a fun weekend.
