Look at this utterly charming and colorful Valentine's Day display. Wouldn't you love to have been drinking some tea or clinking classes to celebrate Valentine's Day?

Have you been to the delightful new shop in Running Springs called Forwarding Wishes Gift Cottage? If you haven’t you must go in and look around and appreciate the delightful atmosphere. The building (on the corner of Hilltop Blvd. and Palo Alto) has been, like so many of our businesses throughout the decades, many different businesses. That being said, the new owners  have great decorating taste and community spirit. To celebrate their delightful shop they are hosting an Easter Egg hunt and it’s free. Children who come and find an egg get a prize thanks to the Easter bunny (I’m sure!)

The new Hilltop Blvd. business should do well. The top floor of the great old building houses some furniture and all kinds of useful (as well as often beautiful) items that would enhance any home. You'll love this store!

A ribbon cutting with the R.S. Chamber of Commerce was recently held to "officially" open the new store on Hilltop Blvd.

The bottom floor of this building is filled with colorful decorative items (including some antiques), clothes, books, some delightful home interior items. There is a special area where teas, yes teas, will be held. Women (and girls of all ages) will love the antiques, the atmosphere and the great ambiance………………………and so will little girls. The main floor has furniture and other items (some very old), paintings, decorative items and a great look. If you love antiques and older items you’re bound to enjoy shopping this new business.

Their  first event is free when they host an EASTER TEA on Saturday, April 4 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Come enjoy the fun and get to know the new owners of this great addition to shops in Running Springs.

The lower level of the business is absolutely delightful. Little girls and big girls, too, will love it!
