BuyBOTHELL: Country Village

     

Since opening its first little antique shop in 1981, Country Village has grown to over 50 distinctive shops, galleries and restaurants, earning itself a reputation as one of the best gift-shopping destinations in Western Washington. Still, the family-owned and operated Country Village leases only to small, independent retailers, so locals are guaranteed a unique and personalized shopping experience each time they visit.

With everything from innovative toys, kids' fashions and pet stores to home decor, antiques, pottery and original art, visiting Country Village is a one-stop-shopping excursion. Each store offers a special niche, giving the Village its essence and charm. And, after an afternoon of enjoyable shopping, guests can unwind at the on-site day spa or catch up with family and friends at one of the cozy cafés.

The experience doesn't end there. Village stores are set among picturesque gardens, ponds, wandering paths and picnic areas for tranquility. Children delight in taking miniature train rides around the grounds, sampling old-fashioned kettle corn and climbing on the pirate ship in the play yard. Families enjoy the many holiday and seasonal events throughout the year.

There is something for everyone at Country Village,

and it will be a Bothell stomping ground for generations to come.

Country Village is open daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday

and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
