Hello Fellow Shop Lovers! This is my first post. It is going to be a work in progress and will take a few weeks for me to get this rolling. My goal for this site is to capture as many shops as we can and list them by State and Country. It will give shop owners a chance to shine and also gives readers a new place to visit, either virtually or in person. To include your favorite shop, please see if it meets the qualifications listed on the right side. You can email professional pics, info and website to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shops that will be considered for the Cute Shop Blog will need to be bricks + mortar, independently owned---(no big chains or big stores), specialty shops or studios owned by a shopkeeper or designer with a passion (no generic gift shops), keep regular hours or available by appointment, g-rated and cute! Send me an email at email@example.com, along with pics.
Our beautiful pics are copyright protected and owned by the photographers.. If you want to use, please write us for permission and we will check with the photographer. We respect intellectural property rights.
The Granville Millinery Company
This is Amy Hamilton's Fabulous Studio where she creates her exquisite couture. Available by appointment. She has been featured in Harper's Baazar, "O" At Home, Country Living, Victoria...just to name a few! Location - Granville, Ohio
Jennifer Porter - A cool friend and talented artist!
We are selling these cards in the Mootz Run Shop. They are handprinted on a special gocco machine. Not sure what that is, but it sounds old world! If you want to see some of her fun stuff, visit her etsy shop. I am addicted to her jewelry and bought several styles to sell in the shop and for myself. I couldnt resist. They arrived in cute boxes with ribbon and tea-stained handprinted tags. So French! When you click on her site, you will notice that her photos are magical...that is because she is a professional photographer, too!
El Gato Negro
A great spice shop in Buenos Aires
Love these london flower shops!
She is one fanciful designer with a couple of cool shops in Belgium. My friend, maryse willems of Ghent, took this pic. What I love about Kaat is how her pieces have something to say and seem to tell a story.
Cote Jardin Antiques
The place to visit for patina-kissed 18th and 19th century garden garnishes.
Joseph Stannard Antiques
A fabulous place with fabulous gardens. This in the the Litchfield Hills area in CT. One of my most favorite spots in the world for world class antique shopping.
I love shops and studios! Creative spaces that reflect the people who own them. Visting cute shops is inspiring and renewing. I own a shop in the rolling hills of Central Ohio called Mootz Run, Ltd. It is a quaint shop in a barn with lofty ceilings and walls painted the colors of peacock feathers (this month). We specialize in loose leaf tea and tea accessories. When I am not at the shop, I am running our wholesale tea business, Petali Teas. I also carve out some time for my cats, chicken and rooster, reading, cello, writing, travel, vicarious travel, eating, food arts, gardening, designing, dressage, hanging out with my horse and my husband...not necessarily in that order.
