A Wonderful Trip to the Vintage Marketplace
On our way home we headed to Escondido for lunch and passed Value Craft. A teacher at Stamping Details also teaches there and always talks about it, so we took a quick detour. Boy was it stuck in the past! We found price stickers from the early 90s on some of the items. But they had some great deals on lace and trim, so of course we had to have some.
Lunch was at a small Bistro in downtown Escondido, which was tres bonne. We split a desert that was a fabulous concoction of chocolate ganache, hazlenut, meringe and almonds. OMG, it was soooo delicious.
After lunch, heading back to the car, we passed a new antique store and popped in. It ended up as one of our favorite places of the day! Many wonderful vendors and I found a Paris crock and an aqua glass Eiffel Tower. I still need to take photos of those, so they will be on a later post. There are a number of little antique and thrift stores in downtown Escondido, and it was definitely worth the stop.
Thanks visitors from Pink Saturday for sharing my travels with me. It really was such a wonderful day!
