Today there were several other things to I was planning to post about but on my drive home I happened to pass by a new shop near my house so I changed my mind and decided to post about the shop. (Don't you just love those colorful dot wall vases pictured above?)
Getting a new store in the area where I live is a really big deal. Our neighborhood has several unique restaurants (other than franchises) but we don't have shops. The best we have nearby is Scott Antique Market but it's only once a month so you can imagine my excitement today when I discovered Cartini Home!
The store is loaded with soaps, candles, handmade vintage jewelry, kitchen items, cool items, nostalgic items, garden goods, gifts and even candies from the 60's. Carter and Jim are the shopkeepers and my husband and I had a great time talking with them and hearing about some of the local items they sell.
The store is in an old auto repair shop and it's been transformed into a great space. As we were headed out the door Carter and Jim gave me a beautiful Himalayan Trading Post candle (which is made right here in metro Atlanta) for me to giveaway on my blog. So, I will be giving away the lovely candle pictured below on Mother's Day. Please leave a comment so that your name will be entered to win.
Don't you love the candle container? I brought home several other items that I couldn't resist.
Also, for those of you living in the Atlanta area, I'm thinking of holding a bloggers event on the south side later this summer and including Cartini Home in the outing. Email me if you are interested in attending and I'll let you know when I get the event organized.
Today I'm linking up with The Tablescaper to celebrate Seasonal Sunday. Hope you will stop by and see what other bloggers are up to.
