Shopping the Gold Country, Murphys

Shopping in the gold country of California is a boutique lover's dream. Starting in Jamestown, all the way up to Nevada City, you will find one original gold rush town after another and each has it own unique look and feel. And many of the old buildings have darling boutique shops in them. They range from clothing to anitques to art galleries. And of course fabulous restaraunts, ice cream shops and candy stores. The last 3 photos is of Pizzazz located in Murphys, owned by Melissa Ninos. Melissa came to the gold country about 10 years ago. They opened Pizzazz 9 years ago and they also own the Victoria Inn in Murphys which has a fabulous restaraunt call V as in Victor for her husband that runs it. Also pictured above is Moon Allie also located in Murphys. Candice (pictured above) is making candles for Moon Allie in an original process developed by Brook the owner.
