I dig the Orange Circle and bonus -- it's near my home!
Here are the many photos I took of our Swag Walk....
The Bruery...full of wine, beer, cheese, etc.,...all the goodness in the world! We had our photo taken by one of their employees....from left to right -- Melody, me, Amanda & Oksana. They were kind enough to provide cheese wrapped with something (can't recall but it was good) and we ended up ordering grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. So good!
On to Gallery at Glassell. They had a cool beverage for us (or coffee if you so inclined) with either Meyer Lemon or Acai Black Currant simple syrup mixed in...
We moved on to my favorite Paris in a Cup Tea Salon. Paris in a Cup = yummy macarons! They were generous with their swag this year and included a croissant chicken sandwich...deliciousness! We ended up going back and purchasing some more macarons.
Eikon Home -- this is such a nice little store and the owner is, well nice...super nice (yeah, I know I'm a wordsmith I tell ya!)And check out their cool napkins with inspirational sayings...you wipe your mouth and feel all inspired afterwards! I like it!
A couple of stores down was Affaire de Coeur. Oui! Oui! I was obsessed with that necklace! I want it!!!
We had to reel Amanda back as she was going to sneak off to the crazy store...I don't know the name but it's packed full of stuff and you can't move for fear of bringing everything down!
|Don't go in there you'll get crushed!!!|
On our way to Country Roads we met up with some fellow bloggers...
Country Roads is HUGE! Has tons of stuff...Amanda made herself at home in the antique tub...
Accross the street we went to Elsewhere Vintage. It's such a lovely store full of lovely vintage clothes and accessories.
Right next door is Lost & Found, which is another cool vintage store...check out the pink men's shoes...
Speaking of men...next up was the Joy Ride Vintage store for, well, men....I didn't take pics of the clothes but they had some rockin' cool suits, ties, shoes, etc.
And now we pause for a silly photo op...
And we're back...Down Home Antiques was shock full of interesting, um, antiques...from deer heads, to Indian heads, to doll heads....oh, and a fake cake! Although they were nice enough to have coffee and yummy cupcakes and brownies for us.
And then there was Julep's Home & Floral...so many beautiful things!
That's it. I hope I didn't miss any stores...I had so many photos! Anyway, stay tuned for Part 2 of our SoCal Social adventures!
Until next time!
(Luna's photo usually goes here, but she was being a diva and wasn't in the mood for a photo.)
