The Original Willowette

And our most beloved mascot.
Miss Willow passed away a few weeks ago and our hearts broke here at The Willows.
I am hijacking Bev's blog today to let her know that we all loved and will miss our baby girl Willow.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal passes that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

We LOVE unique, local, one of a kind restaurants, and Mejico certainly is that!
I just had to tell you all about it.
The menu is simple, with classic Mexican dishes, all sounding delicious. 
In addition to their signature margaritas,
which the bartender is happy to doctor up for those really craving some heat,
they have added a craft cocktail menu that would compliment any spicy dish
(present company included)
In my opinion, the bar has the best seats in the house.
The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about the food, drinks
 and always ready with a recommendation if you are having trouble
deciding which yummy dish to try.

They also have an AMAZING happy hour.
Monday-Friday 3pm-6pm
Half price drinks and appetizers
They had me at $1 street tacos.
I'm going back tomorrow, and maybe the next day...
Mejico, welcome to the neighborhood!
What are some of your favorite local spots?

Something Old, Something New....

...isn't that what people say when you're re-branding? 
Okay, I guess it's traditionally used for weddings,
but it IS the perfect mantra for the next, exciting, few months at The Willows!
After 18 years, (I was 12 when I opened this store) we are giving ourselves a face-lift, but with less swelling.
We are working with the incredibly talented Kitchen Sink Studios to create a brand new website and online store.
The designers over at Kitchen Sink are coming up with great ideas and we can't wait to unveil our new online look.
In the meantime, keep following our Blog, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter
for the latest updates, sales, events, giveaways, inspiration and plain ol' fun!
In fact, if you come in the store and shout "I can't wait for the new website!!"
we will give you 20% off any regular priced item of apparel. 
 (Okay, okay, you don't have to shout it, just mention this post)
Stay Tuned!

On the Road Again....

In the last 30 days, we have been on the road for you.
In January we shopped Atlanta...Warehouses, The Big Gift Market and Antique Shows!
We ventured wherever the taxis would take us.
We finally jumped on the bandwagon and downloaded Uber.
We froze our tootsies off, but had LOTS of fun.
We were able to take some of our favorite dealers out for dinner and drinks.
We thought we had purchased plenty but its going quickly!

Next we took a trip to the West Coast in our faithful F150 "Buddy".
He always gets us where we need to go.
Whether its the Rose Bowl, Long Beach, or Alameda Flea Market, we can always count on Buddy.
Grab your girlfriends and hit the road! Who knows what you'll find.
So what are some of your favorite roads trips?
