Castle In The Air

I'm lucky enough to live near the East Bay because I finally made it to Castle In The Air in Berkeley! It was well worth the trip...

Huge paper vignettes in the window to draw people in!

I tried to get as many photos as possible, but as you can imagine I got distracted with shopping instead. There are also photos on their website.

The most magnificent display was centered in the store...a gnome castle of sorts surrounded by baskets of ornaments.
Tucked in the middle of a trunk is a family of gnomes having a feast (unfortunately you have to be there to see it).

I think the yarn angel is holding home-spun wool yarn, fabulous!

Please visit the store if you're around it is highly inspirational! Plus the store is on a chic street in Berkeley surrounded by many other artist owned shops! However if you can't make it in person they have an online shop!

This is one of my favorite shops too!!! I went there this summer and spend way more than I should have!

Hi Romy! It's Michelle from Art in Ashland. I want to visit that shop! It looks like you had a great time. Paige and I will be looking for another art adventure to attend this year. Hopefully we'll find one as great as Ashland. Have a great 2009!
