Sunday started out innocently enough. It started out as a 10 o'clock coffee date with my home slice, Kerry D. We met at Old Soul in the alley on L Street, pretty much the best coffee spot in Sac-town, and while sipping on lattes and nibbling on a muffin and croissant, we caught each other up on the happenings of our lives. She wanted me to check out some new shop that popped up over the weekend across the alley way, so off we went.
It was a pop-up shop, or as the lovely owners put it "a mobile boutique" called the Mob Shop. Romy Itzigsohn and Lauren Bingham who hail from L.A. and San Fran respectively are setting up shop all over California. So for a week-end, as part of a 2-day event called Curios & Notions, Sacramento was privvy to a wonderful mix of choice vintage, and eclectic furnishings. A shout out to Erin of Bows and Sparrows for helping bring the Mob Shop to Sacramento!

Kerry & I had such a good time shopping at the Mob Shop (she bought a black 1950's blouse, and I scored yet another cobalt blue blazer) we decided to keep going, and walked across the alley to check out the bike-friendly vintage re-mades by Amanda Carroll over at the Edible Pedal Bike Shop.

Here's a video made by the nice folks over at the Edible Pedal:By this time it was high noon, and we were in the mood to do a little Midtown scenic bike riding. So we rode around, on the lookout for more boutique-y goodness.

We biked over to Free Style and did a little shopping, which whetted our appetites for the killer vintage of Crimson & Clover. All this shopping got us hungry and thirsty so what better place to re-fuel than the bike friendly and pizza-riffic Hot Italian? So we did. And so should you.
So our mid-morning coffee date turned into an all day excursion and by the time I rode my trusty Dahon Ciao P7 home it was nearly 5 pm. Full of coffee, shopping, pizza and Morreti, this little blogger pedalled home hopped-up on fun and sunshine, and basking in the best Sunday ever.
