Theatre of Dreams

There is a magical wonderland hidden in the tiny town of Port Costa in Northern California. Artist extraordinaire Wendy Addison has created an enchanting shop space that she calls "Theatre of Dreams" in an 1880's era storefront that also houses the workshop and studio where she creates "Objects for an Imaginary Life". Her beautiful handmade papercraft and mixed media art pieces are on display here along with an assortment of vintage and antique curiosities she has collected and shares for sale, including some beads as well as many other artmaking materials.

The entire visit feels like a dream within a dream - driving along a winding road that ends in a waterside town that seems lost in time, and then the breathtaking shop filled with treasures - and if you are lucky the charming artist herself may wrap up your purchases. Please check the website, as the shop is only open certain days - usually weekends, but many objects are also available on-line, plus she offers info on classes and workshops. Located about an hour northeast of San Francisco and 45 min south of Napa, Port Costa is a perfect place to stop in between. Go!
