For an evening walk through the doors of many businesses in and around The Historic Apple Valley Inn, that Friday April 3rd was the right night for it.
A light warm breeze engaged visitors to stroll along to visit the Inn’s large main lobby.
In there guests met franchisees from Mary Kay Cosmetics, The Origami Owl charms and lockets, Tupperware, Scentsy Fragrances, jewelry crafters, a women’s selection of self-defense protection, and off stage dance troupes.
Farther on where doors opened to a family counseling salon and a psychedelic blue-light art gallery, guests stepped into several display rooms. Talented artists and carvers had their wares on display.
At the western end of the sprawling complex, High Desert Oasis Used Book Store graciously hosted the talents of the Gibson-Reyes Trio. Instrumental and classical tunes emanated throughout the evening. Inspirational writer T J Michaels offered several of his latest titles to patrons stopping by at his book signing.
A little jazz, a bit of bluesy tones and folks lingered for refreshments. What better way to enjoy browsing through hide-away bookshelves. Owner Donna and daughter Alyssa shared their hope to enliven the historic business complex, known for visits from Hollywood celebrities and iconic Western stars, by hosting more events like this on the first Friday of each month.
With the doors closing at 9 pm, Historic Apple Valley Inn became the venue of the night, leaving shoppers strolling off to their thoughts of a balmy spring evening.
