An amazing and unique shop and studio in the heart of Marin County.  San Anselmo offers fabulous restaurants, antiques and other interesting shops, but the most interesting stop is doodlebug.  A shop jammed full of toys, games, craft kits, yarn, buttons, ribbon, art and craft supplies (and more) fills the front of the space.  If you meander through you'll encounter a wonderful art studio where you can paint pottery (or wood or canvas or paper) or use any of the other myriad of materials available in the shop (decoupage, knitting, felting,  mosaics....the options are endless).  doodlebug also provides classes for children and adults, a private "party" room (voted the best place for a birthday party in Marin!) and tons of ideas and inspiration.  Learn to knit or sew, hand-craft a special gift, pick up some fabulous road--trip activities...a stop by doodlebug is always an adventure.  Open 7 days a week (Sun - Wed from 10 - 7 PM and Thurs - Sat from 10 - 9 PM). Located at 641 San Anselmo Avenue in downtown San Anselmo.  www.doodlebugmarin.com  415.456.5989.
