We went to downtown Apex, NC and that is where we came upon Lilly's. BE STILL MY HEART!
Ok...so just the front entrance made me start to hyperventilate. Love the lights, love the greenery, love the wooden archway!
As soon as we entered, I knew I was going to need oxygen. Bunnies everywhere!!! Oh, and the fella on the right magically hopped into my arms and came home with me. Imagine that. ;)
I asked the two delightful, fun and charming fellas, working there (who I did not get a photo of, Duh!) if I could take photos to share with you. They said, "Sure!" with big smiles. Yes! Happy Bunny Dance!
The displays were absolutely incredible.
I loved how they tucked little lamps on shelves. The whole store felt so warm and welcoming with the soft glow of the lamps. I realize that fluorescent light bulbs are more efficient, but they are ugly and the light is cold, harsh and well, ugly. I shall miss the soft, warm, glow of incandescent light bulbs. I can't believe they are no longer making them. Poo!
"I don't know, but I hope she gets my best side."
I have a thing for "Home" signs. Loved this one. Very clever.
And finally, I would like you to meet Calla and Lilly. Yes, they are real and they live in the shop! Lucky birds! Their cage is huge. It's hard to tell from this photo, but it is huge.
It was truly magical and fun here. Did you see anything you would want to take home? Do be sure and visit them if you are ever in Apex, NC. You won't be disappointed.
And now onto our Heart Winner.
