So I've decided that I am going to take a little field trip once every month somewhere in Western Washington and post it on the blog. Now that I've put it out there, hopefully that will help hold me accountable to not put off the little explorations and discoveries that make me happy.
So without further ado, here is Fun Field Trip #1: Common Folk Co.
It is a gift and home decor store. I went there with the stated purpose of buying a present for my friend, Brynn, but I also took some pictures of what they have. So, want to go shopping with me?
First off, above is the front of the store. Cute, no? Also, its proximity to the store next door (pic below) doesn't hurt.
full of charming vignettes with really lovely products.
When we first arrived at the store, the woman who was working offered Sawyer and me a mint sample (one of those white chocolate, melt-in-your-mouth mints--yummm) and because this is Seattle....
she also offered us some coffee or tea. I'm not a coffee drinker, but they had a nice selection of herbal teas as well. If I hadn't been balancing a camera, Lucy on my hip and trying to keep Sawyer from breaking anything while still letting him look at things, I would have taken her up on the offer, though :).
soaps were really pretty all stacked together.
black and white...
they love each other, Mom!"
cute little urchin :).
I really like all the dressed up lamp shades.
glitter were really fun. Plus, can you see the stairs in the background painted with a checkerboard pattern? That would be really great in the right sort of house.
This Easter tree is over-the-top fabulous :).
various chandeliers and paintings are hanging from an old, weathered scaffold.
Does it remind you of one of your favorite places to browse? Stay tuned...I can't wait until my next field trip.
