The Lavender Festival, 5

The farms on the heritage lavender farm tour all have gift shops. . .and they’re all fun if you like retail grazing. Above is Lost Mountain Lavender.

Here is Jardin du Soleil. It and Lost Mountain both have new owners this year.

The Purple Haze gift shop is in the building to the right, above. The building in the distance is a rental house for those who want a total lavender immersion. Purple Haze also has a retail store on Washington Street.

Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm is the first heritage lavender farm that you encounter as you come to Sequim from the east. With this gorgeous red barn it’s hard to miss.

  1. The first time I went we spent too much in the shops! This was the way I did a comparison on the soaps. Everything smells so good inside….wonder if you work there, do you get tired of the smell or become so used to it you don’t notice.

  2. After I’ve spent time in one of the shops my nose goes on overload. I’ve seen little bowls of coffee beans that are supposed to help. The advantage of being a local is that you can wander in and out and not try to take it all in at once.

  3. Hi, Kay…Thanks for your comments about Phoenix. I remember we drove through Tempe in 1971. I recognized very little and we’d only been gone about 6 years! We couldn’t find the apartment where we lived and the hospital where our first two kids were born was very different and no one there remembered Dr. Templeton! Our house in Scottsdale was still there, though. It had gone up a bit in price! 🙂

    Lois Anne would say these shops are all adorable and she’d love to spend time in them. I’d probably prefer not to challenge my nose and wander about taking photos! What a gorgeous area, though!

  4. I have been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this site. Thank you, Iˇll try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your web site?
