Did you ever wonder if you stepped into a wardrobe, you might step out into an enchanted garden? Something like this happened to me. Only it wasn’t a wardrobe or an enchanted garden. It was the Lemon & Lavender gift shop and I do believe it is enchanted.
A friend and I were riding along, when she noticed a store called Lemon & Lavender. The name itself made me smile. I knew I had to go there. After finishing some errands, we headed for the shop.
When you step inside you are met with displays of, what else, lemon and lavender themes including the colors and scents of both. The items are unique, classy, whimsical, along with treasures for the heart and soul. You are also met with the warm, friendly, accommodating, helpful natures of the mother and daughter proprietors, Antonella and Christina.
This story is not about the merchandise per se. (To view the enticing wares, I suggest you go to their site or Facebook.) This story is about what you do not see. This story is about a special feeling. Unless you stop to smell the roses, oops, I mean the lemons and lavender, you may not notice. You may not even notice until you exit the shop and are hit by city vibes again.
I can’t say exactly what made the boutique enchanted. Maybe it was the engaging personalities of Antonella and Christina. Maybe lemon blossom and lavender flower fairies had spread their magic fairy dust everywhere. Maybe it was a momentary wrinkle in time. Maybe it doesn’t matter. What mattered was when we left with our purchases, I felt like Spring arrived in my heart and it was a very good day.
Will all who visit Lemon & Lavender have a similar experience? I don’t know. Maybe. It’s certainly possible. You see, every now and then the universe conspires for us by providing exactly what we need in a given moment of time.
Comments are welcomed. I'd love to hear from you.
