Vintage & Vogue at Christmas!

Pin It Now!

This beautiful shop is exactly 1.5 miles from my apartment. It's amazing that I'm not there every day! Look how beautiful it is when you walk up to the front door! (you can click on any of the photos to enlarge them)

Once inside, there is only one word to describe it~BREATHTAKING! I'll just let the photos speak for themselves...





















If you ever find yourself in Silicon Valley (or anywhere in Northern California) this is a shop you should visit! They are located in quaint little downtown Campbell at 241 E. Campbell Avenue.

I am just flabbergasted. What a wonderful place. And your beautiful little home under the cloche sort of embodies the whole atmosphere. Magical.

My husband works out of San Juan Batista - we live several hours away from there in Bakersfield - but when he goes for business at least once per month, I might just have to come to Campbell. I don't know how far it is from there, but I don't really care - I love it already. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Cindy

Pink Slippers said...

Oh I would love to live there and buy those bluebird ornaments and make a baby mobile with them. Every little boy should have those to stare at and talk to in his crib even if they are ornaments.

Cindy - Thanks for this...I have a lousy cold and have been really out of sorts and these pictures have - thankfully - put me back in the Christmas spirit. You are a wonderful photographer and that is a great shop

Oh, I love it! I'll try to go by this week. How did you ever decide on only one little house? They're all so beautiful! ☺♥☺ Diane

chatelaine said...

This shop reminds me of Sophia's in Salem, Massachusetts. Beautiful vignettes everywhere you look. I could buy one of everything.

Your pictures are wonderful.

Hope you are feeling better.

Beautiful shop!I would probably blow my budget if I went there.

Miss Linda said...

Oh, I'm SO glad I don't live anywhere near that store! I would have spent my entire Christmas bonus in that one place! They were so kind to let you take pictures, and you are so kind to share it with us all!

Victoria Lynn said...

Cindy,
Wow, I would be in BIG trouble if I lived near that store. I love everything in it! The displays are delightful. My favorite was the black polka dot chaise. A good place to go for inspiration. Thank you for sharing.

Thank-you so much for covering every nook and cranny of that beyond-beautiful boutique for us, Cindy! I think we all know what it feels like to enter a store filled with treasures and immediately fall into a deep trance and lose track of all time and sanity, trying to take it all in simultaneously, wandering around until closing time:)
You only live 1.5 miles from there!!?? I'm soo jealous!

Thanks!
Karin

Becky said...

For a brief moment I day dreamed I had money and you were my personal shopper. Wouldn't we both have had fun!
What a wonderful shop.

I can't stop looking at your photos of this amazingly beautiful shop! I don't think there is one thing that I wouldn't just LOVE to have! The owner is definitely a woman (or man) with fabulous taste! Thanks for giving us a virtual shopping treat! Sue in FL

Wow, isn't that all so very beautiful? Goodness, would I love to financially ruin myself in that shop! Well, I can at least copy some of the decorating ideas.

Hey, if you enjoy uplifting Christmas stories, I have several good ones on my blog. Scroll down, there are about 4 now.

God bless you this Season and always,
Elizabeth

Lee Laurie said...

Cindy,
These pictures are beautiful! I love this shop! It reminds me of 'The Mole Hole' that I use to manage. I miss that store so much. We didn't have vintage things but we had some beautiful things. You would have loved it. If I lived close to that shop, I would be trying to get a job there.LOL You are so lucky to live that close to it. It looks like a store you would have.
Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

Ok Cindy - I just came from virtual shopping with Debbie @ Confessions of a Plate Addict's local antique shop. I had a virtual heart attack when I saw a HUGE display of plates. Now I need a good dose of virtual glycerin to slow my heart rate again. My fave - I loved the sparkly Eiffel Tower. Ok, I had other faves but I can't list them all. Yum-mee!

Jen r. said...

My cousin lives in Morgan Hill, which I think is just a hop skip and a jump from you. I'll have to tell her about the shop. It's fabulous!

Linda said...

OH MY! Thank you, Cindy, for taking the time to post these pictures--I so enjoyed them! I truly believe that you are doing good to help little, wonderful shops like this stay open through your postings. Many shops like this by me are closing their doors in these hard times.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Well, I'm going to come out there and visit my girlfriend in Pleasanton just so I can come visit that store. Of course, I'll need to bring wads of money with me because I cannot imagine walking away from half that stuff. So, where's that money tree????

Laura B. said...

WOW WOW WOW. This was certainly a feast for the eyes. I love the cookies too. WOW. I'm pretty speechless right now.

Shabbee Chick said...

Ouch! You're hurting me with all that scrumptious shabbee-ness!!!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Oh my goodness ~ terrific shopping to be had here ~ I could sure do some damage to hubby's pocketbook!!

My favorite are the precious ornies with the tatted looking lacey snowflakes on them. Very unique.

Victoria @ Auction Girl Vintage said...

Cindy, I love this shop, it's one of my favorites for inspiration and photos! The basket they may for you is beautiful, so many blue and white goodies and treasures. I know you're enjoying your time off at this special time of year, and everything in your home looks perfectly lovely and lovingly perfect. Hope you spent some time at my favorite Savers and the cool Goodwill in Campbell while you've had a chance to wander.

Hugs,

Victoria
