The Heart of the Gold Country



Passion to create a small Main Street business is almost a forgotten concept in 'e-tail' America, but not here. Amador County is enriched with shopkeepers, whose passion is displayed on every shelf or rack. Each business owner hand picks items for their store, making the store a reflection of the owner's passion. Every individual piece speaks to them, and the concept they want to convey. They make it available for you to enjoy and even, purchase. 

Whatever your interests may be for shopping, something will appeal. One store may not be your cup of tea and the next one may be off the charts for you. Whether you are into antiques or chic fashions and everything in between, it’s all here.

Have you ever visited a kitchen store with that tool you didn’t know existed? Stop in Jackson at Biggest Little Kitchen Store. Have you ever been to a Gallery where all of the jewelry is one of a kind and made in the USA? Gifted in Jackson or Fine Eye Gallery in Sutter Creek, each have a different take on this philosophy. How about a store that has thousands of music boxes and collectibles, or a book store with a large selection of out-of-print books and a steampunk vibe? Sutter Creek Music Box Company and Hein and Company, respectively, fill the bill. Have you ever been to a garden store that specializes in antiques or seen glass-blowing as it actually happens? Bellflower Garden in Amador City and Antique Gardener in Sutter Creek enhance their gardens with sculptures and garden décor. Find a cheese shop that lets you sample exotic cheeses for free, or a wine tasting room that has olive oil tasting, too. For those who love antiques, discover an antique store that has a large warehouse that you can wander through or small antique stores that have articles from the 1800’s on.

From shabby chic to just plain Chic, you will find a range of fashion boutiques for every style. Adorable, one of a kind children’s clothes are available as well.

Amador County is rich in artists of all kinds. The galleries display original artwork in categories that will delight your senses. And for home décor, our stores cannot be beat. From the smallest of items to interior decorators, all your home decorations can be found here.

Amador County’s shopping could be summed up with tread-worn words like: Home Décor, Fashion, Antiques, Gifts, and Art. That would be a travesty to classify these stores built on passion. Yes, you will find all that here, but with care and thoughtfulness. One of a kind, is a better analogy for the caliber of stores here. Come and shop with us and you will find the passion for yourself here in Amador County.

Bargain Hunting requires a love for ‘the hunt’ and plenty of hunting grounds are available here in Amador County.

  • Two times a year, Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, bargain hunters can be seen stalking yard sales and sidewalk sales all over the county. Buy & Sell, a weekly ads paper available online, prints on Wednesdays and is the local source for thrifty souls.
  • Trash to Treasures’ on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend in Sutter Creek is what it says, a search for your personal gems.
  • ‘Dandelion Daze,’ mid-March, closes Main Street in Jackson for a street fair with bargains galore, music, and food.

Don’t miss Amador’s Main Streets, which have plenty of thrift shops and antique dealers.
