Eye Candy~The Attic and Vignettes

I’m back from my trip to Sunny/Rainy California. Had such a good time junking and visiting with family. I hope you’re ready for lots of pictures, because for once, I remembered to take some.

Our first outing was to San Diego to visit The Attic on Coronado Island.

This adorable shop is owned by Nancy who I have known via Ebay and blogging for years, but have never met. I was thrilled to find Nancy working that day and it was so fun meeting her in person. She is as warm and down to earth as I thought she would be.

We thought it was so funny how we were both wearing almost the same thing. Here’s just a sampling of the many gorgeous things she has in her shop.

I want to send a big thank you to Nancy for being so sweet. It was truly wonderful to finally meet her. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend a visit to The Attic. Tell Nancy I sent you.

Our next stop was to the lovely Vignettes located in the Ocean Beach area of San Diego. The owner, Lori, was nice enough to let me take a few pictures to share with you here on my blog. Be warned, drooling is likely to be a side effect to viewing these photos.

Simply gorgeous. I realized after the fact that I didn’t get any pictures of my friend, Joy’s booth. The Vintage Rabbit is her little biz and her booth was simply amazing. She had the best stuff and I’m sad I didn’t get to see her on this trip, but hopefully I will do a better job at getting in touch with her on a future visit.

I have more to share with you from my trip. Pictures of some very lovely shops, details from my day at the Long Beach Flea and of course, the goodies I brought home. But, that will have to be on my next post. Hope you’ll come back and check it out! Have a fun Friday~!

Looks like a great trip....So Cal has some fine shops, it would appear but, then, so does Oregon....and you're in two of them.

All Vignettes needs is a little bed in the corner, a coffee pot and a microwave and I am ready to move in. Wait. I can bring those things from home. Okay, I'm ready.
