Valerie Durst, proprietor, has long been known in town for her great taste. When we moved here 14 years ago, she owned a clothing store by the same name, "Something Different" . Local shoppers, as well as tourists who came to town just to shop with her, frequented the classic store.
To the dismay of many, she closed the store after a number of years and went on to do other things. Life changes and a love of art and home furnishings has brought her back, and man, oh man, is she back!!
Valerie is very much an international shopper and she can't keep these telephone wire baskets from Zimbabwe in stock. Aren't they fun?
Of course, she has to have a few fashionable things to wear and these belts with Frida Kahlo and religious icon buckles are great looking.
Love the pillows, love the tables and chairs, and of course, love the square Italian platters..........
Traditional as well as classic modern pieces are mixed together all through the store.
Art as well as rugs and accessories are blended in every corner and I had to walk through several times to even begin to se everything.
I really don't buy any more of this particular pottery unless is I see a piece that is very different from what I have or one that is very unusual
