Country Village

Featured Shop: Quite The Find

Welcome back to our "Featured Shop" posts! Here we'll be once again introducing you to other shops that share our home at Country Village, in Bothell Washington (find the Village on Facebook, too!). We'll do this roughly once a week, so keep your eyes peeled, as there's a whole lotta great shops around us - all small "mom and pop" shops that we know you'll love!

Today we'd like to introduce you to Quite The Find. Nancy Stoll took over the space where Gina had The Well Dressed Home (Gina's life went a different direction back earlier this year), and we are SO loving having Quite The Find across the street from us. Nancy and her team have done a beautiful job with the store, creating a beautiful mix of antiques and new finds in an inviting and comfortable space. You can find Quite The Find on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/quitethefind and on the main Country Village Shops website at http://www.countryvillagebothell.com/quite-find

And now, because a picture is worth 1000 words, here's a small gallery of Quite The Find - we hope you enjoy it, and we hope you walk across the parking lot and check them out the next time you're here at The Weed Patch!

Baby Birds!

Baby Birdies at Country Village Bothell Our physical storefront is located in a beautiful and unique shopping center called Country Village, in Bothell Washington.  There's all kinds of animals running around - from hens and roosters to rabbits, ducks and geese to a cage of doves, koi in the ponds, the sometime's seen herons, and more.  Kids of ALL ages love to come see all the animals, walk through the beautiful landscaped Village, hit the shops and the restaurants... well - you get the idea. :)

Baby Birdies at Country Village Shops

Last night as we were leaving, one of our neighboring shops (Country Blend) hollered to us from across the stree to come look at something - and to our delight, there was a new nest with tiny baby birds in it!  We got up on a table and zoomed in the video camera and caught the footage below.  We were trying to take pictures too, but needed the flash - and BOY did they go nuts every time that flash went off!

Enjoy!

Janene's favorite is brisket and smoked macaroni - yum!  Chris loves their pulled pork sandwich and corn bread - but really, it's ALL good!  And in addition to wonderful food, they've got brews, and they've got a huge flat screen TV... can you say SPORTS???  This is a seriously sweet spot to come hang out, guys.  And heck - head up there while the women shop - it's the perfect combination!

From their website:

Carolina Smoke in Bothell's Country Village "Carolina Smoke is owned and operated by David Hayward, who originated from Charleston, South Carolina. He moved to the Northwest in 1971 bringing his home-style southern cooking with him. He has been sharing his delicious BBQs with family and friends in Western Washington for 20 years and after rave reviews he decided to start his own business. 

 

Carolina Smoke in Bothell's Country Village The specialty that David brings to his BBQ style is unique. The grill that he uses is not only big enough to serve large parties, but it also grills without gas or charcoal, therefore preserving the food's natural flavor. David uses mesquite, alder, hickory & cherry wood pellets to grill his food which allows for more control of temperature and taste. In addition, the meat, fish and vegetables are fresh and cooked on site. All of this adds up to fresher, cleaner and better tasting BBQ meals from the Carolina Smoke grill."

We really hope you'll make the time to come by Country Village this weekend!  Plan some time for a party up at Carolina Smoke, and then head down to your favorite shops around Country Village!  Here at the store we've still got some Easter left - and that wonderful day is coming up QUICK (so don't wait!)

What's your favorite type of food?
