mara-mi

One of my big to-dos over the summer was to spend an afternoon in Stillwater--a darling old-fashioned town along the Mississippi River. Its downtown is lined with antiques and cute shops where all the vintage goodies and small-town charm are enough to paint a smile on your face and put a spring in your step...but adding Mara-Mi's new store into the mix makes this place heaven on earth. The folks at Mara-Mi combined their beautiful stationery line, racks of letterpress, ribbon hanging from the ceiling, along with home decor, a counter of vintage jewelry and an adorable little bakery in the corner. If that's not enough, they have an entire smorgasbord of ice cream to top it all off. All the things that make my heart go pitter-pat under one roof.

Beautiful! If only I could afford a flight from California... for now I'll just drool over those colors from afar.

My family loves Stillwater. My dad is obsessed with one of the restaurants down on the river. Last time we were there, it was too late to go shopping. Maybe need to fix that next time!

What is it about color coded shelves that make me so happy :) This place sounds great, I'll have to mapquest it, see if it's a do-able trip!
