In downtown Ocala, this small but delightful shop offers a plethora of goodies, most of which are handmade by the proprietress, Laura V. DellaPorta. Laura graciously posed for our photo although she was very busy arranging her beautiful and delicate wares.
Thank you, Laura, and we wish you the very best in the future! May Verbena grow and prosper!
Even though I'm male, I love browsing through shops like that.
Looks like a fun shop, Jacob! Is the Paris icon actually drawn on the glass?
I love the bike, the flowers, and the painted toenails!!
wonderful work indeed!
This looks like a really neat shop! Handmade stuff is always nice.
Best wishes to Laura for a nice good looking little store.
Hydrangeas are one of my favorite and these, look like they need water!!
Laura has some impressive blossoms! Looks like a fun and whimsical store!
Lovely name for a shop. The people of Ocala are certainly willing subjects for your photos. That's quite a skill, or are you actually paying them? :)
What a neat place. The bike out front is a great touch too.
What a great window display!
Laura has made a good job, indeed. She must be very creative person! Hats off!
merci pour ce bouquet de fleur, et puis une belle 'petite' tour-eiffel
My idea of a little heaven. To have a small shop/gallery in warm climate. Thank you for reminding :-))
Good luck to Laura. Is that an Eiffel Tower in her shopwindow? :-)
Volví a visitarte y disfrutar de tus tomas y como siempre algo aprendo.
Nunca olvido a los amigos y aunque pueda tardar en volver siempre tengo tu trabajo cercano.
Abrazos, José luis.
Very Italian name and surname. Who is Verbena? (another quite Italian name...)
What a lovely portrait, Jacob! I wish Laura the best too. Verbena looks like a wonderful shop.
I hope she prospers :)
What a great site & beautiful people behind it!!!! Thank You so very much for stopping by & featuring me on your blog...please stop by and visit soon. xoxoo Laura... Verbena Girl
Verbena is a delightful name and Lemon Verbena is a delightful plant. Smells so good. MB
Looks like a nice pretty shop to browse through
I would love to browse around in Laura's shop for awhile!
As a bike rider, I love to see bikes made into planters. I'd like to spend some time in that shop. You made some great pictures here, I bet they would make nice ads.
Great portrait of Laura
Pretty .. and I love her flipflops, does she sell them? Do they come in size 10?
Fantastic! A gorgeous hydrangea, a lovely lady, a nice tower.
Lovely--looks like a great place~ I'd like to check it out!!!! Nice captures.
it looks wonderful! Would love to visit it someday!
It's so much fun to look around a shop like this!
I would shop there. You captured her nicely.
I love that she posed for you...and the first thing I noticed was that her flip flops matched her flowers!
How do they come up with the verification words? I got "ocalopla" on the Ocala Blog. go figure!
You're getting nice pix of people and their work. I wonder if I'll get the courage one of these days?
That looks very nice and cosy.
Well done, Laura!!
