My Definition of a Good Saturday in Orange California

A good Saturday to me, is driving into old town Orange, stopping at Haven Gastropub for lunch and a beer, and then going to a few antique stores. We don’t hit “retail” antique stores often (I like to┬áhunt at estate sales and thrift stores), but Country Roads, is one of our favorites, and exception.

Country Roads in Orange, CA - one of my favorite antique stores / malls. The next time we go, I'm going to need to start at the back of the store and work my way forward.....I never make it back there!

I'm thinking I could use a thrift store decanter and use the "looking glass" spray paint to get this look. What do you think??

I would love to find one of these chandelier or lamp with the metal flowers, in the wild! What are these called? Another thing for my research list.

I’ll share another favorite shop later this week. It’s the polar opposite of Country Roads, and right across the street. mmd – rustic, industrial, and inspirational.

Have a great Sunday….cheers! Forget the Christmas shopping, and enjoy yourself some happy junque hunting xxoo
