Palm Beach Part II

Saturday, I headed up to Palm Beach for a little shopping and treasure hunting. I was in such a hurry the last time, I didn't make it to some of my favorite shops. First stop, Stubbs and Wooten, a small wonderland tucked back in a corner but decorated so beautifully and filled with fabulous needlepoint shoes. I have a bunch of pairs and they are super comfortable. The table that first caught my eye was the monograms. They obviously are custom made and come in silver or gold.

There are several styles to choose from. I peeked at the price tag, a little scary, but fabulous none the less.

Some pink and green ones calling out to me..

Some velvet delights.

I love this store. Visit

Next, Leta Austin Foster, an incredible linen and home accessory store that has a little something for every room in your house! When you first walk in the store, it's china everywhere! Not the department store type china, gorgeous custom designed china. My favorite was this and green with palm trees. The other fav was the blue coral.

Rounding the corner, you enter the linen section, shelves and shelves of linen sets, pillow cases and napkins in every color and more designs than you can count. Also scattered throughout were beautiful lamps and wastebaskets.

How cute are these Jack Rogers??? Or Bonannos-still not sure about which is best!

The manager of the store explained that if you see one in pink but want it in purple, they will get it made for you. Rounding another curve, you enter the shoe/stationery/bath section. Again, beautiful monogrammed shoes, buttery B. Designs notecards stunningly personalized ( I bought 2 sets last year and they have become VIP stationery for if you get a thank you note on one, you will know you are on my VIP list!)and monogrammed ribbon belts.

Then..the children's section. Not only do they have a wonderful array of clothing for boys and girls, but Madame Alexander dolls, Steiff teddy bears and baby gifts galore...

Visit Leta Austin Foster at their website here.

Next stop, Kassatly's across from Tiffany & Co. Our giveaway friend Robert Matheson was having a trunk show of his fabulous REDD gear there. His table was stocked with goodies and he was charming all the ladies into buying his amazing shirts.
Don't forget to check out his website here.

Across the street at Calypso, I walked in and was overwhelmed with all the colors and new items. Of course, I am immediately drawn to the hot pink corner. Love this purse..

these baubles were amazing..I never see beads like the middle necklace!

Luckily enough, after all that shopping, I didn't get a parking ticket and headed over to South County Road to hit up the stores there. I couldn't resist popping in to Lori Jayne Monogramming to say hi and to look her store over again. She had some new things that I missed the last time. (I have a feeling that you could visit each week and see something new every time)

She just finished needlepointing this box for her son.

The cutest favor ever..brightly wrapped Oreos. She designed the monogram and had the stickers made. There is also a size for graham crackers.

This bowl was a little hard to resist..

She showed me one of her favorite things, these thick beautiful linen napkins with her monogram. The thread color choices took up 8 pages. What an amazing gift for someone..
Visit Lori Jayne at 305 S. County Road in Palm Beach

or her Facebook page here!

I ended my Palm Beach excursion meeting Robert for drinks at the most Palm Beachy place, Michael R. McCarty's. It was a scene for sure and somewhere I will definitely be visiting again.

Next stop...Naples!!!
