back to cali

We headed back to California a couple weeks ago to buy some new apparel for the store.  While we were there we forced ourselves to hit up the flea market and some of our favorite restaurants.  We know, we know.  It's a pretty rough life...

Aren't these suitcases just fabulous?  We contemplated ditching ours to really travel back home in style.

Old french daybed - was sold by the time we got to it!  We were devastated...so we just bought every french linen and seedsack we could get our hands on.

Vintage linens dyed in pretty pastels for spring.  We picked up a few lovely items - we are in love with pink right now.

We give shlepping a whole new meaning - our laugh of the day was Jen's crazy cart that wouldn't roll right.  She ran over my heels about 10 times that day until I made her walk in front.

What do you think?  Jen's ready for the 80's again!  She almost bought the pink prom dress...almost.

Krista driving a hard-bargain.

We visited one of our favorite showrooms - CP Shades!  We went crazy ordering - wait until you see!  We even tried to get the owner to make some special scarves for us from dye samples!

This cashmere-blend sweater came in already, and we're almost sold out!

Pre-order your life's a beach sweater today - they will go quickly!  This grouping of three is available now at The Willows.

Great new cargos coming in - we ordered pants and shorts!

New line we found at market - it is AMAZING!  The mannequin in front of the showroom drew us in - just wait until you see this line!

Can you believe this line is Hurley?  We are so excited about what we found for summer!

We ate at the famous Ramos House Cafe - you can buy the cookbook at The Willows.  The place is so charming - there is even a line for the bathroom because nobody wants to come out when they go in!

Sweet iced-tea in mason jars - what could be more appropriate?  We were drooling over the menu, and finally decided to all do a different dish so we could sample each others!  The man at the table next to us ordered two bloody mary's and you should have seen these!  They were so full of vegetables that he claimed he couldn't eat his meal!  We offered to help...

In order - fried chicken salad with dried cranberries, roasted apple and smoked bacon mac and cheese, and baked potato soup.  That is good ole' southern comfort food!

I'm working on my pose...

That was fun! I love a flea market, virtual or not. Your pose is great - the bag, fabulous.
