Susan Branch, at her studio with her new fabric line “Martha’s Vineyard Watercolor” in the background.
Susan’s studio, big and airy – a wonderful spot for creativity! The bookcase holds an assortment of Susan’s gift line.
Susan and me! I was so thrilled to spend time with Susan – we have so much in common. She is the heart of her books.
The Heart of the Home storefront in the quaint community of Arroyo Grande, CA.
Every detail of Susan’s store is impeccably presented, and you’re greeted with an invitation to enter.
Come on in and make yourself at home!
The kitchen “department”… I’ll take one of each, especially that marvelous stove – which is the type that Susan’s mother used to have when Susan was growing up.
Don’t you love this table display? Just one example of Susan and staff’s creativity.
The back porch, which leads out to a lovely garden area.
Downtown Arroyo Grande is a step back in time to a gentler era. Antique and specialty shops mingle with fine eateries, including sweet shops, bakeries, and an old fashioned ice cream parlor.
Don’t forget a visit to Farm Stand, past Heart of the Home, and turn right at the sign for Lopez Lake – just two miles down the road. See you there!
