Combined with our love of junking, paired with the spirit of the road trip, we travel around the West Coast in our Airstream trailer. We scour flea markets, thrift stores, estate & yard sales to bring back lovelies to our vintage shop located in the quaint town of San Luis Obispo, California.

The yearly white elephant sale in Oakland-this sale benefits the Oakland Museum. They take donations for a year and then set it up for the annual sales. We get in during the pre-sale days and usually fill the trunk. To get in pre-sale you either need to volunteer or donate goods. This year we joined in with the Glitterfarm gals and Polly Jane and had so much fun that we needed to break out in dance!
This year has already been amazing! With new goals for the year, we have put road trips at the top of the priority list. We have logged some miles and have made some really fun memories. We've listed a few favorites below.
Alameda Flea-hands down favorite! Not only do they have everything you'd ever want or need, but they also have the best food trucks ever!!
Long Beach Flea-this is the flea that started it all for me! Before San Luis, I lived in Long Beach so it is familiar and easy. Lots of mid century, love the price points, lots of art, furniture, garden, and they have also added a handful of clothing/boots/leathers as well.
This may have not made it into the store and may be hanging in my kitchen...
The High Noon Western Show in Mesa Az.-we have some friends that are the rock stars of this show (my opinion as well as others). It happens once a year and is was so worth the trip if you love authentic western goods.
This is not a flea market and there are not deals, though the prices are in line to market value. This wasn't a trip for resale but rather for looking and learning. I did bring home some earrings and a pair of moccasin boots that I bought from Mary Emmerling (more on that later).
We also highjacked some tumbleweed that I had wanted to use for a display coming up. The mister wasn't thrilled but he played along!
On the way home, we drove through Joshua Tree, stayed nearby at the Roughley bed and breakfast in 29 Palms and hit some thrift stores nearby.
