shopping treasures of idyllic los gatos in california

Destination Los Gatos
In Frank’s one can find all sorts of interesting things both for indoors and outdoors

Los Gatos at the edge of Silicon Valley here in California is a fantastic place to visit – quite amazingly this little city of under 30K people has a huge number of shops – I think I counted there being at least five kitchen stores to start with. Plus interior stores (including Restoration Hardware!), clothing, lovely restaurants, consignments shops…

And all this tucked into a picturesque setting of leafy streets, cute buildings and it is all nesting by the mountains. Oh yes, the kids also love going to the county park where they have the stream train and a carousel. Need I say more?

Visiting Los Gatos

On this visit I spend there 4 hours or so, and did not even manage peek into every antique and interior shop – and I ended up with so many cute pictures that I need to split this story into two or three pieces. I just adore Los Gatos!
