Shopping In Sequim, WA

I am ready to do a little shopping. Can't go without my queen bee shirt and can you believe I got my thick hair done, even without my straight iron.

When dad decided to start spending his summers in Washington he chose a town called Sequim. It is the most charming place to spend a little time on vacation. The soaring Olympic Mountains grace the city’s southern border and the waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca create a northern boundary. Sequim’s ideal weather is the envy of other coastal towns and all of Western Washington.

The town's lamp posts have the most colorful flower baskets I have ever seen.

Stop the car...Look at that rooster...he is at least five feet tall. He graces the front of Over The Fence. The really sweet ladies allowed me to take a few pictures in their shop.

They have a large selection of French Country decor. Click on the picture to see larger views.

I wish I had a place in my kitchen for the shelf that is holding the adorable red and white cups and plates.
Wish I had a cup of coffee to sip on while sitting at this little wooden table. Dad reminds me that I can't buy everything , I have to fly home. Don't guess that the table will fit in my carry on.

Pre de Provence lotions and soaps, I can not say enough about these luxury products. I have used the Verbena soaps. If you like creamy soaps , this would be your new favorite.

On to a Garden Center, I believe the name is Henry's. The weather is so beautiful, I could walk around here for hours.

I really want some of this brilliant blue pottery. Wonder if I could strap it to the top of the plane?
It is all on sale, what is better than that?

Well, I am getting a little pooped, how about a coffee? LOVE LOVE the coffee drive-thrus. In the south the drive-thrus are daiquiri shops. I think that when I return to my city I will show you around...Hope you like to see new places.

Sequim ... Lavender Capital of North America

Sequim is the Lavender Capital of North America. The festival is held every summer in July.
Lavender loves Sequim and we love it. The climate is similar to Provence, France, the Lavender capital of the world. It likes good draining soil and does not like to get it's feet wet (don't over water) which makes it a great drought tolerant plant. There are some fifty varieties of lavender growing in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley.

...Hope you enjoyed visiting Sequim... Till next post.

I'm not good at window shopping so I'd be checking on the cost of UPS!
Bringing home some lavendar in your suitcase may work though. I love the smell.
Tell your Dad all of us from blogland say Hi and have a great time!

Oh my goodness. I can hardly breathe. One of my dearest of friends (she is like my mom) moved to Sequim when we moved to Florida (we since moved to Mississippi). I have always wanted to go and visit and loved seeing all your pictures. I need to go call her and catch up! :o)
Thank you for taking us along!

Oh how I loved going on a virtual shopping tour with you. LOVE the shop with all the Frenchy stuff...
I liked the plate shelf, too. I think the little coffee place is so adorable and quaint. Not your everyday SB's, that's for sure.
Glad you had a fab visit w/your dad.
