This is our third year to experience White Linen Night and we are here to attest: this year's attendance outdid all the others. The sidewalks, streets and stores were packed with a wonderful melange of happy people.
We dove into our favorite shop, Behind The Garden Gate, on 19th Street. With Smith & Hawken closing its doors nationwide, this is everyone's go to place for all things wonderful for the home and garden. Besides, they also do weddings and other special occasions.
Felix Hernandez, owner and designer at Behind the Garden Gate, keeps the place filled with his wonderful flowers and antiques for the house or garden. The Bungalow is filled with his lavender, in antique bags and in small bouquets.
He has a great collection of unique, primitive wood and metal accessories, like the antique industrial scale, bucket and basket, above.
