Modesto Mouse

Just got back from a thrift-shopping expedition to Modesto. Hadn't ever been to that neck of the woods, and was curious about their shops. As a thoughtful and fun birthday get-a-away, my sweet boyfriend D planned this little adventure for me. He reserved a room at the Holiday Inn, planned a few food stops and charted out dozens of thrift-stores in the area. We left Wednesday morning & returned Thursday night. I had such a blast!

Of course, I was soooo busy ooohing and ahhing over all my thrift-store finds, that I forgot to take pictures, so aside from a handful of shots, I didn't chronicle our adventures very well. The folks of Modesto were super friendly, and the prices were right. We're definitely looking forward to a return visit.

Fun! Who would've thought a romantic getaway to Modesto would be such a pleasure?

You know, someone should really start a Flickr group about thrift store buildings.

Doing my first vintage/op shop foray today. Yes...I'm a vintage virgin! Ha Ha. Hope I get some good stuff.

I can't wait to see all of your finds! Random little towns always have the best thrift stores.
