Shopping in Palouse, WA

My good friend, Nina is visiting from Portland, so we decided to take a drive down to the lovely town of Palouse to antique for the day. The weather started out sunny and the drive through the Palouse Valley was gorgeous. After getting to the town of Palouse, we stopped into
the Green Frog for a delicious lunch (I recommend the Viking mushroom and swiss sandwich) and coffee. After lunch, our first stop was St Elmo's Antiques, which is owned and operated by Jackie Strack. St Elmo's is full of springtime treasures, and gardening items. We loved the green Hoosier shown above.

Our next stop was Open Eye Consignment Shop, owned by Heidi Kite and her husband. Heidi is one of our Barn Bazaar vendors, and is one of the sweetest people. Her shop is full of antique and vintage items, from kitchen items and tools to vintage clothes and jewelry. She and her husband also own a second shop down the street, which focuses on books and furniture. They are both lovely shops with lots of variety.

The next stop on the list was a new shop, called Palouse Pines Mercantile. This lovely, bright (we love the yellow paint) shop has a great varity of country and primitive items. We fell in love with the great little pie safe shown below.

Next, we stopped at Linda's Whimseys. This sweet shop is full of romatic, Victorian items, both antique as well as new gift items.

We had a great time exploring the town of Palouse, and took home some treasures from the wonderful shops we visited. Definitely a fun way to spend a Saturday.
