L-O-V-E Bridge in beautiful Portland, OR
Hey, Y'all! I recently traveled to the Pacific NW and although I didn't get to stay very long, I did manage to get to some great new vintage shops, a highly touted summer JUNK show, and even got to go to some touristy places too.

As soon as I recuperated from a long day of air travel, I headed north to the little towns of
M & M Antiques, Monroe, WA
Snohomish and Monroe, WA to visit Bungalow BlingAnnie's On First, Faded Elegance, and M & M Antiques as well as several must-go-to thrift shops. I always manage to find lots of treasures and I love seeing so many junkin' friends.

Junkers Nest, Sumner, WA
 This time around we planned an extended weekend visit to Portland, OR, but stopped in Sumner, WA on our way to visit Junkers Nest. This new shop is full of adorable vintage treasures, one-of-a-kind repurposed furniture, and many other needful things.

One thing I forgot to take into consideration was traffic on a the I-5 on a Friday afternoon in late July. . .so when we f-i-n-a-l-l-y arrived to the magical

Plucky Maidens Junk Fest Summer 2015
vintage market, Plucky Maidens Junk Fest, the show was in full swing. Our dear friend and Chief Plucky Officer, Pam, is the beauty and brains of this extraordinary show featuring wonderful vendors from WA and OR. Her summer Junk Fest is held at The Oaks Amusement Park along the lovely Willamette River which was the most perfect setting for a summer day of junkin' wonderfulness.

From there we spent a lovely evening at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse --which has delicious food, local brews, and live music in an enchanting setting.

Some much needed rain greeted us the next day, but hardly dampened our enthusiasm to see this lovely "City of Roses"(and incredible vintage and antiques shops!!)--PORTLAND!

Pacific City Beach, OR
followed Highway 101 to Long Beach, WA. Luckily, we were able to stay at the Inn at Discovery Coast,

a chic seaside inn with an industrial farmhouse vibe and incredible views.
 Here's a peek at what came home with us.


Until next time,
Peace, love, and
all the good stuff!
