I have a new favorite store.
Only problem is. . . its 162 miles away.
Not bad if you have the time and the gas money.
Totally worth the trip, too.
A wee bit far if your day is busy, though.
My DH and I took a little junking trip to Idaho last week and Pocatello was our ultimate destination. . . because I had read about this store on a blog. Fell in love with it through the pictures shown on the blog. It was "my kind of store" and I knew I would love it. I was not disapointed.
Just one reason I love it. . . she displays her "smalls" in enamel pans and metal milk crates. Like I do. And she sells smalls, like I do. Gotta love a shop owner who has great taste, like I do ( * wink * )
Vain & Vintage is located at 318 E. Center in Pocatello, Idaho. Laura Hamilton is the lovely and friendly owner of the shop. She's put together a a charming and interesting collection of vintage, retro, and antique goodies that will leave you wishing you had more money in your pocket.
I came home with an amazing metal screen that I'm going to use for display in my booth at Treasures Antique Mall, some vintage flash cards, and a few bits and bobs to use in my junk jewelry. I wanted to bring home the organizer shown above, along with a set of red suitcases,
I totally left the store wishing I had more in my budget. . .
Next time you're in Idaho, check out Vain & Vintage.
Next time you have a free day, check out Vain & Vintage.
Next time you need to clear your head and take a road trip. . . well, you know.
You'll love it.
I promise. . . .
