Springtime in the South Bay…

Hey Everyone,

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place.  The leaves on the trees in my backyard are coming in, and it’s lighter later.  Spring is such a lovely time of year, especially here in the South Bay.

At Gum Tree we love Spring, because just like in fall, we get all new merchandise in!  This year we did a little spring cleaning too, and revamped the cafe in the process.  It looks so fresh and clean, I love it!


Our talented neighbor Maggie is an amazing chalk artist.  It truly is an art, and she did such a beautiful job on our new menu wall.  If you’re in need of a special chalk board for a bridal shower, wedding or birthday party, check her out at http://www.margaretcolleen.com

It’s almost Easter too, and we have all the best stuff for your Easter Baskets at Gum Tree Kids.

We also have some fantastic new clothes and toys in, and tons of beautiful new books.
