That huge garden gazebo is made of metal (I'm not sure if it's painted but I love the patina!) I wish I could have captured a better image of the wrought iron doors. They were spectacular! And, once again, I focused on the flowers. That's my passion; just as there's is collecting and selling all those fabulous one of a kind treasures. I collect white ceramic flower pots and so I found that row of green pots filled with flowers to be absolutely charming.
I have a friend that used to live in that area. I wonder if she ever shopped there? I'm adding it to my "someday" travel list. Even if it is just to visit with Michael and James and to see that 3 story post-and-beam barn that their collection is housed in.
