Ginger Blossom

Welcome to Ginger Blossom

I must return for the Nepal shipment on July 12th!

Ginger Blossom in Richmond, Illinois is a truly amazing shopping experience! Ginger Blossom (love her name) and her husband Evan travel the world for beautiful carpets, furniture, fabrics, art and artifacts. They have filled their barn, home and various other farm buildings with treasures and unique handmade items. They are members of the Fair Trade Federation and they buy directly from the Artisans. I wish I had taken better pictures inside the barn, it is brimming with beds from Nepal, antique furniture and mosaic fountains from Morocco. If you get a chance, visit this amazing spot.
Please don't forget to enter my contest below!

What a cool looking place. The cows would have to get a running start to get up that ramp.

I like the photos of this nice store! I hope big hair never comes back. With fine hair, I needed a perm to get mine big....I shudder at the thought!!

Wow in Richmond! Who would guess. We used to go there often, when we lived in Chicago. Saw you posted a link to your Norma Kamali story; thought of you when I saw a t-shirt from the line featured in the new Country Living (:. xo-- Sandy/rhubarb reign
