A Little Adventure in Whittier, California

Two Fun Art Exhibits Plus some fun discoveries along the way.

On Friday October 30th we took a little field trip to Whittier California.  We found some really great delights in this sleepy little town. First off was a stop at the Whittier Public Library to an exhibit of tole paintings. Our friend Marion's group was invited to show some of their work.  We loved Marion's pieces which featured traditional holidays: Christmas, 4th of July and Halloween.

 Marion stands by one of her wonderful painted designs.  A moving Haunted House complete with
witches, ghosts and music as it revolves. We love it!

 After spending some time in the library we were off to uptown Whittier for lunch. There we discovered a great shop called "Besame" located at:
  • 6743 Greenleaf Ave
    Ste A

    Whittier, CA 90601
    Mitra spotted the intriguing red door and she said, "This looks so cute!"

     Besame is a charming store created by founder Gabriela Hernandez.  Her cosmetics and perfume are reminiscent of a bygone era of "glamour and elegance".  She features vintage inspired luxury products with packaging which will make you feel like a  Hollywood starlet.
    I will write more about this beautiful store in tomorrow's blog.  Let's just say we were literally "over the Moon" with glee in "Besame".


After shopping at Besame we went to lunch right next door at "The Bottle Room " , a fun restaurant bar which features great craft beers and good food. 

 After lunch we head  to nearby Whittier Art Gallery to view my cousin Nancy's art exhbiit.

A great day with friends Marion and Mitra and cousin Nancy!  Wonderful discoveries and adventures in the little town of Whittier California.
