Have you been to Tyler Florence???

Hello Everyone!
I hope you are all having a great weekend!
I was curious if any of you have ever been to this amazing store.
I just discovered it last fall, when my mom and I went to Mill Valley, California.
I wish I would have had my camera then.
When I was last over there I photographed Tyler Florence's store for you.

Tyler Florence is a famous chef,
Who has opened an amazing shop, called Tyler Florence.
I haven't ever seen anything like it.
I want to buy one of his cookbooks, but I couldn't decide which one to get.
So I will wait until the next time, if I get lucky enough to walk into this store again.

Prices of items range from low to high.
There is something for everyone in this store.
I promise you won't walk away empty handed.

Be warned there are a lot of photographs!

His store is stocked with French antiques.
I love just looking at the way they have them displayed.

If you would like to visit Tyler Florence's store online you can.

I needed my Tyler Florence fix this morning.

I kind of had to hurry because I had this really cute cowboy waiting outside for me.

Happy Mother's day!
Take Care,

Giveaway information!

What a great post for a Saturday afternoon. I can't go out shopping today and live clear across the country from this shop, but it was fun looking at all your photos - what a yummy place. It is probably a good thing I don't live near the shop as I would be broke from buying everything.

Dear Maria,
We don't know about Tyler Florence here in the U.K.
What a wonderful store, with such beautiful and delicious things. I would be shopping online everyday, if I lived in the States !! He has found some wonderful French things hasn't he ? Thanks so much for showing us, although, I am rather disappointed that I can't visit his store !! I must go there when I am next in that area. XXXX

Shelby said...

You weren't joking about there being a lot of pictures! :P His shop looks adorable, I'm sure I would love it, I love the whole French look. Very cute! :)

If we were neighbors...your hubby and my hubby could hang out in front of the stores together while we would spend hours dreaming. YOu are so blessed to have a sweetie that will wait on you..;) Mine while too but He WILL NOT touch my purse. He has this thing about my purse or wallet. If he needs something he will bring it to me but never opens it...too funny! Thanks for sharing yet another wonderful site with all of us. If you keep this up girl I will never get my house clean...hehe. Happy Mothers Day! ((hugs)) Susie

Thanks for the 411 Maria - I didn't know he even had a store, but I am a fan of Tyler's and even have a couple of cookbooks - I will be sure to check out the store website - too bad I don't have one near me (yet!) to browse in - I know I could spend hours in there!!! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!!

Oh, and how can I forget? Happy Mother's Day, Maria - I am sure your family will have many nice things waiting for you!!!

Marija said...

I have to confess I had such a crush on Tyler Florence. Do you remember the cooking instruction show he used to host...something about how to boil water? Would LOVE to see this shop. Though these pictures have me feeling like I already did! Thank you!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day :)


Anne Lorys said...

Hi Maria!

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day! I hope you and your beautiful family had a wonderful day. :-)

Secondly, I had no idea that Tyler Florence had a store! Whaddaya know?! I knew of his reputation as a celebrity chef, but his shop comes as complete surprise. It looks like a fantastic place to drop a big chunk of change.

Thank you so much for your sweet and caring comments on my last post, they really meant a lot to me.

Hugs to you, my friend!

The Little Red Shop said...

Oooohhhh....if that store had been around when I was little, my mama wouldn't of had to hurry because she wouldn't have been able to get my daddy AND my grandpa OUT of the doors! Wonderful...just wonderful!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

I've never heard of it before, but it looks amazing! Reminds me of a Williams Sonoma mixed with a little Pottery Barn and a little Anthropologie. :)

Hi dear Maria, this shop is amazing! Hope you've spent a fantastic Mother's day!!!! Maybe very spoiled and cuddled by all of your kids!!!

What a neat store..i'd be there every week for sure. I love you blog and have added you to my blog roll so I can check in all the time..I love the style of your house...beautiful and you are such a talented photographer. Nice to meet you...

Melanie said...

Up late sewing...stumbled across your blog! LOVE it!!! Mill Valley has been a favorite getaway for my husband and I for the last 9 years. Tyler Florence is awesome! Love his recipes and the store is great!!

Thanks for such an inspiring and fun blog...I will be visiting often. : )

Why I'll never visit your website again - A friend sent me the link to this page and I agree that the photos were nice, but I was greeted by awful music and had to scroll from here to timbuktu to find the player to turn it off. It wasnt' just that the music was awful, as that is subjective, but that it auto-played at all. It should be an option to turn ON, not force someone to turn off. That lost popularity in 1999. Please be considerate to your readers and make this very simple change.
