Thanksgiving Guest Gift Idea!


Headed to a dinner party in Venice for Thanksgiving? Want to bring something besides a six pack of Oly and an empty stomach? “Cottages in the Sun: Bungalows of Venice, California” is a great gift any guest could give the host! Nope, they didn’t pay us to say that, we just like the book! You can pick up a copy at Small World Books! Miss Manners would approve!

Written by Margaret Bach and Photographed by Melba Levick, the hardcover book is 240 pages of wonderful color pictures that anyone with an interest in architecture, interior design or just plain old lookie-loo-at the neighbors will enjoy.
