Favorite Cottage Shop…

There are so many fantastic local shops that I love here in Washington State.  I of course have a few favorites! This one in particular I would love to share with you!  Located in Bellevue Washington is a fabulous store called Common Folk Co!  Kathryn, the owner of the store – was kind enough to allow me to take photo’s in her store to share on my blog – she is the sweetest woman was so gracious about it!

How cute and clever is this display for matches?
& loving the Spring décor found in so many nooks!

Of course – since I have a passion for gardening – these were my favorite displays!  Too cute for words, right?

Everything in this store is displayed with vintage style in mind.  The vignettes are carefully adorned by both old and new products…many by artists with one of the kind pieces.

What a darling little shop! I went to Bellevue in the 90's and wow, what a gorgeous town it is. I am totally swooning over those little cherub frames!

Kinda' glad I don't live too close to that store....I'd have to find a job to support my shopping habit! Wonderful merchandise and such beautiful displays.

What a great store! The inside doesn't look anything like you would think from the outside! She has some great stuff there. I love that kitchy little travel trailer with the bottle brush trees. How very comical! I can't believe all the things she has PLUS she has coffee...Oh My! I'm afraid I might move in and never leave! xxoo Diana

I would love to visit this store.. we just don't have such stores here.. everyone is so transit, we call them 'snowbirds' they come for the winter and go back north in April of each year.. too hot to stay the summers...
If I ever get that way I'll go visit for sure!

Hey girl! I know its been quite some time and you most likely gave up! But I have a batch of that great Solid Mahogany and cut 22" long making for a perfect sign!!!
Are you still wanting a Merry Christmas sign my style! like the one you requested?

I know its Easter for goodness sakes!!! I don't plan these things well do I :) Yet I am now gearing up to the Christmas items now!! Mixing some of the year around things.

Post me if you are still in need of one!

Thanks for taking me on such a lovely fieldtrip! I was given one of those beautiful packs of matches with a bee motif on them in my Stocking this Christmas. They are just delightful.
I could get into a whole lot of trouble here!
What an inspiring stop!

When I get up to that part of our state I will check out this store, I can tell I could spend quite a bit of time inside, and maybe a bit of money too.
