A Shopping We Will Go...

Welcome to sunny Southern California! 

What a great little get~away from the cold Northwest November! 
A trip to visit family and hunt for vintage treasures to re~stock the shop!
First stop... The Rose Bowl!  Oh I wish I could bring everyone along, it is such fun! 
You never know what you might find...

and the people watching is grand!

We had our little wire shopping carts, but some people were really prepared! 

That rolling cart was packed!

Antiquing truly is a treasure hunt, isn't it?  It has been said that antique hunters and junkers are the original recyclers, and I believe that is true!  I love the idea that I have helped some well worn, much loved item continue on it's journey!  When I feel the soft leather of a pair of tiny button~up baby shoes it is easy to imagine the wiggly little feet that took their first steps so many years ago!  Or give the old school bell a ring~ can't you just see the pigtails flying as the children scurry back into their one room school house?
These 'old things' have made it this far, I am hoping they continue on for another one hundred years!

Now we are back home and looking forward to the holidays!  Just a few days away from Thanksgiving! 
I hope this finds you all well and ready for all the fun ahead! 

Thank you for checking into my little blog, I so appreciate you taking the time!  I hope to see you all soon, and don't forget, Historic Downtown Snohomish is place to be on the day after Thanksgiving...
Santa comes to town, there are carolers on the street corners, and we will be open until 8! 
Skip the mall and have an old fashioned beginning to the holiday experience!

I wish you and yours many blessings as you enjoy the festivities~
