Fabulous Finds" Villa Valentina" A Unique Shopping Experience

The beaches in Mexico were fun, the sun healing, the landscape dramatic and Villa Valentina just happened to add to the magic :) I stumbled upon this unique store as we were leaving San Jose for Cabo. Something inside me told me to stop as we drove past it. Thankfully, we turned the car around as this place turned out to be absolutely fascinating.  

Have you ever entered a space where you want to get lost wandering?? Well this was one such place. Villa Valentina " is a beautiful art and design center housed in a Mission-like building". For me me it was so much more, I loved everything about this place. It appealed to my design sensibilities completely. It had a casual yet refined air. There was an endless treasure trove of goodies tucked away in every nook and cranny. There were exquisite things placed effortlessly just poised to catch your eye! It reminded me of a haveli with an old world charm. To think I was in Mexico and yet it felt like I could have been in Rajasthan :)

Haciendas or Haveli.....what can I say, I have a weakness for both :) Villa Valentine apart for being a lovely shopping experience, houses a restaurant, an art gallery and features art classes as well. Need I say more ?

Have fun looking, I certainly did :) Have you had a unique shopping experience that has stayed with you forever, I would love to know? Do share your story in the comments section below. As people join in I am sure we can come up with some interesting stories :)
