Just Folk!

I went on sort of an "art date" yesterday...first to a friend's house for a Holiday Craft Faire. I bought some fun little fairy ornaments for gifts and some nice handmade soap; lemon, lavender & rosemary, in a nice starfish shape.
Then, since I was close to Summerland I decided to check out a new store called "Just Folk". I brought along a little basket of some of my wooly cats and a few hooked items, just in case they would fit in with the folk art I'd heard about. Well, once inside...I just couldn't believe what an incredible place I'd found! The most wonderful collection of folk and outsider art I've ever seen! Like a museum...and all in a cozy wooden beamed store with an upstairs also filled with amazing stuff! They have quilts, hooked rugs, carved wooden animals, doll houses and cabins, dolls, furniture..I was in folk art heaven! They let me take pictures too. When the owner arrived I showed her some of my stuff and she bought a bunch of things...cozy cats for the big Christmas tree, a hooked squirrel, a heart, house, and toadstool. It just made me so happy to have my things in such a wonderful store.
If you are ever in the area, you must visit:
Just Folk....2346 Lillie Ave. Summerland, CA....
A visual treat for sure!
