Lavender Market in Fredericksburg! And, oh yeah - I'm back!

Monday, April 21st, 2008

Hi y'all! Yes, I'm back ... I would go into great detail about the family matter that has kept me away for the last 3 weeks, but to be honest with you I'm just not in the mindset to want to blog about it. One of these days, in time, I might post about it. But, for now -

That's all I have to say about that...

On an entirely different note, I wanted to let y'all know about the Lavender Market in Fredericksburg. To be honest with you, it's a kind of bitter-sweet story, but a good story none the less. Here's the sweet:

The Lavender Market in lovely Fredericksburg has opened! It's located at 339 E. Main, on the corner of Washington & Main.

It's one-stop-shopping for all you lavender lovers out there. In addition to carrying wonderful lavender items from France & England, they are also carrying lavender products from some of the area lavender farms, AND US!
I mean, seriously, who needs French lavender when you have Hummingbird Farms? Oh, wait a minute - at Humminbird Farms we grow French lavender... And English lavender, too!

Here's a close up of the Hummingbird Farms display. I like to look at it in several different dimensions. You see, I get this self-fulfilling head rush thing when I see our products in specialty boutiques...

Okay, I'll stop showing pictures of the same thing and discuss more about the Lavender Market. Now I said a minute ago that this is sort of bitter-sweet for me. Here's the bitter:

Many of you may have shopped at Villa Texas in Fredericksburg. I do admit, Villa Texas was one of my favorite shops in Fredericksburg; it was located in uptown rather than downtown (Lavender Market is downtown). Not to upset any of y'all, but I also must admit that I'm more of an uptown shopper than downtown shopper. This is for various reasons, one being that I just like to say I shop in uptown... It just sounds fancy. But also, I've always been one to travel the less traveled road. It's a sort of non-conformity issue that I can't seem to shake ...

Anyway, I mention Villa Texas in the past tense because it has recently relocated from uptown to downtown, and has transformed with an emphasis on Villa's Lavender Market. Darlene, owner of Villa Texas & The Lavender Market, had too many irons in the fire to continue on with her uptown location. Darlene is a VERY talented architect and has simply gotten too busy keeping up with clients. So, that's the bitter part....

Although I will miss Villa Texas, we're thrilled about the new store and location and wish Darlene all the best. As always, she has put together a precious store with all things lavender. You're going to love it! She's also made it real easy for all us lavender lovers to find everything in one place.

I'll have several more stores across the country to talk about later which are also carrying our products! One such store is called The Vogue!!! Imagine me, little ole' West Texas girl with products in a store called The Vogue!
I'm going to go slap myself silly now ...
