A trip to Bountiful

Bountiful is a beautiful shop in Venice, California.

and as you can see...
it is indeed bountiful...

The owner has it down with displays.
Large, massive, overwelming...
not 3 but 300..

In this case, cake stands...

what if you want the one on the bottom?

This shop takes your breath away with its shear volume
of merchandise.

There are other things besides cake stands like
the most beautiful chippy, shabby furniture you could
find.   The owner helped to define this look in the very
beginning by scouring the back roads of the American South.

She was one of the first.   And her warehouse is full.
Her clients include many celebrities .

In case you want a pink cake stand.

or a white hobnail.

Yes, this is all in one store...

more bounty from Bountiful in my next post...

Have to go and open up my own little store  on the worldwide web...
Beatnheart on Etsy...not quite as bountiful but a nice little place to shop.

Cheers!   Cynthia

Hello Cynthia:
Yes, most definitely a store that we should be beguiled by. But, the stress of entering it, feeling that at any moment a thousand cake stands may topple....!!

Beatnheart said...

Yes! especially in California....

Oh wowza....I've always loved 'multiples' of anything, but - oh my!


Cynthia Fox-Giddens said...

WOW, this place looks bountiful indeed. I bet you enjoyed your visit and browsing :)

Marian said...

Wow, what a statement....all those cakestands and the colours are yummy!

Fire Byrd said...

Cakestands are lovely things, and I'd dearly love one, but that would mean making cakes to put on it, and that would mean eating all the cake and that would mean getting fat and that is NOT happening! So do they sell egg cups???

Hi Cynthia!
Thanks so much for your sweet post on my blog and congrats on your Etsy shop! Wishing you much success.
Hey, where is Bountiful? Is it on Main or on Abbot Kinney or??? Looks like some place I need to go ... except for my klutz factor, shiver shiver shake!
Oh and yes! I'd love to hear suggestions regarding where to sell items I might be able to let go of - there's not much that's "special" but it's all dear and precious to me of course - but it won't fit in my teeny tiny house. WAH!
Happy week to you,

Oh goodness...I could spend DAYS in there just looking around. I'd love to have a pink cake stand with a glass dome on it...but I never see them! I guess we need to take a trip to Venice California one day huh ;) THANKS for sharing one of your favorite placse to shop with us Cynthia :)
