Shop: Bountiful

Sometimes, more is more...

and Bountiful, an antiques & collectibles store on trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd., in Venice California is a perfect example.

Packed (literally) floor to ceiling with the kind of treasures found at the best vintage flea markets, Bountiful is a curated collection of (mostly) old and (sometimes) new home decor by owner Sue Balmforth. It's part whimsy, part style and all charm. 

The shop is a haven for interior designers, Hollywood stylists, home decor enthusiasts and the occasional celeb.

 In spite of the shabby chic aesthetic, those expecting flea market prices will have to look elsewhere. Still, it's a jewel box of discovery and if you are lucky enough to happen upon that certain something-- as the old slogan goes...priceless.

Several colorful cake stand displays create a bold (and brave) statement --especially here in earthquake territory.

Let them eat cake! Absolutely gorgeous...but you might want to leave the kids outside...

Read more about Bountiful on the company website, or better yet, head over to the shop in person: 1335 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice Beach, California.
