The Makery

Where The Local Go: The Makery  |

The Makery in Los Altos is a true delight! Overflowing with happiness this Shop is sure to inspire all ages with lovely displays of colorful felt, fabric, ribbon, paper & yarn! With a fun selection of all things crafty - this is a must stop for any creative seeking goodies to make something fabulous. My favorite finds here include calligraphy nibs & ink + plus a wonderful Sip, Shop & Make Craft Night complete with a glass of Champagne & a gourmet cheese spread to help get the creative juices going.

* Be sure to check out their latest calendar for one of their wonderful Workshop Classes to learn a new craft or perfect one of your old favorites.

The Rose Garden

Where The Local Go: The Rose Garden  |

The San Jose Municipal Rose Garden is one of my favorite spots in the South Bay during the Spring & Summer months.  Popular amongst locals for picnics & portraits this colorful park is a lovely place to spend an afternoon lost in an array of roses.

* Be sure to stop by nearby Zanotto's market for picnic goodies - we always head straight to the deli counter & get a delicious Tri-Tip Panini !
