As summer came to a close, I headed down to Charlottesville for a quick weekend trip—and to Caspari, of course! I had a terrible time ripping myself away from this store, and didn't until I had stocked up on some of my Juliska pattern (which includes ginger jars!), books, hostess items, and a pile of other treasures.
Juliska Country Estate in blue and white ginger jars.
Caspari is chock-a-block with chinoiserie—this Dorothy Draper-style cabinet flanked by Gracie-esque panels is a prime example.
Just in time for Fall, Caspari has plenty of orange.
A particular favorite of mine was this floral die-cut placemat.
Green lattice and animal print make for a lovely spring setting.
A few of the wrapping papers on hand—pagoda, monkeys, and the same pinwheel pattern as the placemats!
There were many small pieces of furniture for purchase, including garden stools.
I loved this display, especially seeing my rather traditional Country Estate pattern paired with an almost electric turquoise blue—very different, and very fun.
