Christmas in Charlottesville!

Tuffy at the Rotunda!

We had a wonderful visit to Charlottesville, VA for the holidays with my family...and I had a few seconds to stop by a couple of my favorite stores!  



First up is one of the flagship Caspari stores located on the Historic Downtown Mall...we were there at 10 am (when the doors opened) the day after Christmas for their annual 50% off sale!


I was having a big case of camera store shyness (meaning I did not take any pictures) so all of these images are off the stores' respective website...


Love this store!!

Next up, Patina Antiques on Ivy Road...


Antiques, vintage and new items all mixed in together...at great price points...my favorite mix!




Finally...a store that I did not get a chance to stop in...but will the next time I am in C-ville in the coming month...


...on 250 West...

...an absolutely beautiful store!  Love how they use color!

Wishing that everyone has had a wonderful holiday...

Hopefully, there will be big things in store for 2012!

Take care,
Caroline

Happy New Year Caroline! So excited to hear about Charlottesville - I hope you get over that little problem you have with taking photos in public! And George is SUCH a favorite of mine (online) and I'm dying to see the store in person! The owner, Christy Ford is amazing!
Great to have discovered you this year and looking forward to another year of inspiration!

What a fun post, seeing where you were for the holidays. Tuffy is beyond adorable!!! And, I'll bet you have the best collection of Caspari now!

I'm dying to visit And George in person. I "visit" all the time online!

Here's to a marvelous new year, Caroline!
