Our first stop was Heavenly Hostess. Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos at this store as was too busy looking at everything and talking to new friends that I forgot to whip out my phone! Nonetheless, Heavenly Hostess is the place to go for aprons, candles, cook books, funny books, knick knacks, etc. Check out their Face Book page here.
Next on our tour was Tea Leaf Cottage. Antique clothes, jewelry, home decor, etc. Wonderful store!
Next up was Provisions Market. Oh man, do I love this store! They have my favorite and in all kinds of yummy varieties...I'm talking about cheese! They also have beer, wine, deli meats, olives, and well, go to their store! They gave us a taste of beer and deviled eggs (how's that for swag!). I was told beets gave them their pretty color. I am not a beet girl. In fact, I hate the taste. But these tasted divine!

Up next, Orange Candy Company. We were ready for a sweet treat and they didn't disappoint by giving us a treat bag full of candy! They not only have candy, but cool cups, gift bags, magnets, etc.
We moved on to another new store for me, Vintiques. The people who run the store genuinely seemed happy to see us! Their Social Media guy (yep, they have one!) took our photo and put it up on Instagram (@vintiques_hd). By the way, I'm a new member of Instagram myself (@vivianlunaaccessories). Still figuring out the ins and outs but Emmy and Tori were very helpful in teaching me how to follow people and add photos. But I digress...where were we. Oh yes, check out the photos from Vintiques...
|Yes, that is Amanda photo bombing my attempt at taking a photo of the Vintiques sign.|
Right next door is the store is Elsewhere Vintage. I was a little leery about going into this store, as last year I was reprimanded for touching one of their dresses! However, they were very nice on this day and seemed glad to see us. They have a wonderful selection of vintage hats (no, I didn't try any on, but I did touch several of them...just can't help myself!).
And right next door to this store is Joyride. This store is for the man in your life. Now, if you want him dressed spiffy and looking distinguished (in a super cool way) this is the store! I was drawn to the items in the counters.
Across the street was our next stop, Country Road Antiques. This place is huge! It has all kinds of knick knacks, antique home decor, vintage clothes, etc., etc., etc. If you have an hour to kill you need to stop here an check it all out!
A short walk over is Affaire de Coeur. This is a fancy antique store. I'm always too afraid to touch anything in this store for fear of breaking it!
A couple of spots over is Spotted Moth. Oh, how I dig this store! You can find such pretty things here.
Next up was Eikon Home. This is a great store for finding things you didn't think you would need but now can't live without.
|Amanda & Melody found some funny disguises.|
A short block over we entered, Front Porch Pops. I didn't even know this store existed! Now that I know, you better believe I'll be going back to try the different flavors of fruit popsicles.
Crossing the street we encountered our next stop, Down Home Antiques. You find such interesting items in this store.
Our final stop was Julep's Floral & Gifts. This store is so stinking cute! It's a small store so it got a bit crowded but well worth the stop.
So that's it for our Swag Walk around Orange Circle. I had so much fun and the swag we got was awesome. I especially enjoyed the company I was with.
Stay tuned for part 2 of SoCal Social! Dinner & more Swag! And hey, I even won something.
Until next time!
|I know! I can't stand the cuteness either.|
