AMONGST Artists and Connoisseurs of these skilled Masters, THE PURPLE COW has gained recognition from Guests the World over, as an outstanding Award Winning Shop filled with wonderful and delightful treasures.  Country and Victorian settings designed around seasonal themes make pleasing temporary homes for the Gifts and Home Decorating Accents that fill this heart warming shop so close to Yosemite.


FALL brings a wonderful change in the weather.  Delightful Fall colors, corn stalks, pumpkins, and scarecrows all adorn this shop three weeks or so before the Labor Day Weekend.


WINTER arrives the 1st of November when Christmas Decorations Extraordinaire turn THE PURPLE COW into a Christmas Fantasy.  THE PURPLE COW’S Grand Christmas Open House is always the weekend after Thanksgiving Day.   It’s a Weekend so colorful;  It’s a Mountain Holiday Tradition!  Come joins us for hot spiced cider, and homemade cookies.


OUR FAMILY of artists invites you to browse, laugh, shop and enjoy the fine treasures to be found in every nook and cranny of one of the few remaining historic buildings in Oakhurst.
