The Antique Gardener in Sutter Creek, CA


Hello Everyone,
I hope you are all having a great Monday.
I wanted to introduce you to my talented friend, Aimee Peterson.
Aimee owns a shop called the Antique Gardener.
The Antique Gardener is located in Sutter Creek, Ca.
Aimee also recently started a blog, called The Antique Gardener.
It is a real treat to just visit Aimee's shop.
She carries a wide variety of antiques and plants.
You will find a wide selection of antique doors in Aimee's shop as well.


I took a few pictures of Aimee's Shop to share with all of you.
Aimee's shop is in the neatest old building, which I believe is over a 100 years old.
I hope you enjoy the tour...
This is only a small sampling of Aimee's shop and garden area....





Aimee sells a wide selection of Guy Wolff's Pottery....










an antique cupboard from Europe


a zinc topped chest


French lavender soaps.....


This pine cupboard is one of my favorite cupboards in Aimee's shop.....






I love the walls in this room....




I hope you enjoyed the mini tour of Aimee's shop and garden....
Aimee has also asked me to bring a few things down to sell in her shop....
Thank you Aimee....
You might find a few items from my shop while shopping at the Antique Gardener.
 If you happen to be in Sutter Creek, be sure and stop in, Aimee would love to meet you....
I hope you also get a chance to welcome Aimee into the world of blogging.

Aimee also teaches classes at her shop....

Morning beautiful! These images are sublime and whispering in my ear..."get out and into your garden..." I can't wait! We have been getting some serious rain in our area, but as I write this, I hear the birds a singing and I know my hands will be in the soil soon. Thanks for the inspiration. Trinidad

That shop looks amazing. Too bad I am all the way in New York. Next time I am out there, I'll have to check it out. Your pics really show off how beautiful her things are.

The Antique Gardener said...

Thank you so very much Maria for featuring my shop on your blog. Your pictures are amazing!!! You capture the feeling of that great old house like no one else can. You also inspired me to jump into this beautiful blog world and although I am definitely still learning it is a great experience for me. I am thrilled that you want to sell your fabulous treasures in the shop and hope you come by as often as possible. I am so lucky to have you for a friend - thank you!

The Antique Gardener is one of my favorite shops! I am only 40 mins from Sutter Creek. I have purchased many things...seeds, white paper bulbs, a tiny urn, soaps...it really is a lovely place. How lucky you are to sell some of your items in her shop. BTW my laundry smells so fresh from using your lavender sachets in the dryer after washing in Mrs. Meyers lavender detergent! Thank you. ox

Kristi@lovelyvélo said...

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Very pretty, her shop is an inspiration. I want my whole house to be filled with fleurs and plants this spring and this is just the jump I need to get on it this morning. Thanks, Maria!

How great you've got some items there. I wish it wasn't so far away... at least I think it is with the area code I see there. Maybe we can take a day trip from Wine Country to her shop sometime, I'll have to hint to my hubby about it.

Have a great week, oh I love that first planter overflowing with goodness.
xoxo~Tracie

A lovely shop. Would like to spend some time there. Have a nice week.

Jen said...

This post made my day! I live in Wisconsin, and unfortunately have never seen such a beautiful, clean, bright antique shop as Aimee's! I like to shop for antique photos, paper, and books to use in my art, but I can't stand the smell, the darkness, the dust, and the dirty clutter in the shops we have up here. Your luscious photos made me feel like I was in this happy, inspiring space!

Visuellement je trouve vos photos très belles, je gourmande du regard...
