Just recently visited for the first but not last time, the fabulous and amazing Vintagehouse Nursery Co. in Yuba City. Usually I pass through Yuba City on the way to somewhere else.....never dreaming the Vintagehouse Nursery Co. existed there. A friend went on and on about this unusual nursery/gift shop...how there was nothing like it anywhere...how it was hard to describe..but I had to go there with her!!
I was amazed when we arrived. It was early, early spring and although not one plant was in bloom...the nursery was full of structural 'bones' as garden designers love to say. The 'hard elements' of a garden that define the space of the garden and provide height and depth to your garden design. Even the bare vine branches looked good on their arbors, gazebos, and trellises. The ponds, waterfalls, and creative use of materials were inspiring to say the least.
The owners were very personable. So much so that we felt like we were talking to gardening friends we'd always known.
After enjoying every nook and garden room outside.....we went inside the Vintagehouse. I was awestruck! It was as though you were in your grandmother's house but better because there were even more decorating items and ideas than grandma could have ever had!! Talk about reuse of old items, antiques, fabulous decorating items, every holiday represented, and just fun merchandise! The aura was warm, dreamy, boggling, inspiring, and down right mystical and magical in the very best ways possible.
Don't miss this great business if you enjoy inspired gardens, unique decorating items and great owners!
