I and a few others spent all of yesterday visiting vintage and thrift shops in Oregon City. If you grew up in Oregon you know how important this city is to our history - it's the site of the end of The Oregon Trail.
Anyway, our first stop was at...
This shop is located in an historic home which just adds to the charm.
I completely spaced taking photos of the downstairs because I was more concerned about dripping on the pretties since it was, of course, POURING rain outside as we walked in.
Upstairs each closet and tiny room is filled.
And you have to really spend a lot of time just standing and moving your eyes around to see everything.
I loved these dishes and teacup stacks.
There's even a basement full of goodies too (there's an old dumbwaiter going down to the basement that I was fascinated by). My mom bought a beautiful shabby chic pillow and I drooled over a few things but didn't have any cash with me - dang!
Just two houses up the sidewalk is...
They had the most fantastic collection of plaid thermoses and lunch kits in one of the baskets on the left - why didn't I take a photo?
Right inside, this closet was filled with vintage clothes and accessories.
The kitchen is filled with kitchen items...
It is completely adorable inside. Talking with the woman working there, the place is run by several people and they take turns working so one person isn't stuck working there all the time. A nice way to run things, I think.
I loved all these vintage suitcases.
If you are in the area do stop by and visit these shops!
Several stops later and we finally made it home. My future SIL and myself shared some of this uniquely flavored sorbet. It's very creamy and not really sweet but I liked it. I think I may have a mild soy allergy so I appreciated that this treat was made with coconut.
A very wet, very tiring day, but oh the pretties! :)
