antiquing in Orange.

For years, my mom, sister, & I have loved driving up to Orange County to visit the quaint city of Orange to go antiquing. We adore it. The cute little town circle, the darling shops, the routine of it. And yes, we have a routine. :) And yesterday was no exception!

We park behind our favorite shop, Country Roads. Then we walk over to grab a coffee and pastry at Starbucks {it used to be Diedrich's coffee, with a lot more ambiance, boo!} Then we head out, coffees in hand, to find neat treasures to take home with us.

{Me & my mom!}

Halfway through the day, we then walk over to lunch at Watson's Drugstore, famous for their delish diner food and the fact that "That Thing You Do" was filmed there! :) Then we hit up a couple more of our top stores to see what else we can find before heading back down to San Diego.

Routine is important on our days to Orange.
You can't mess with it.
It's worked for us for years.

But I have to say, yesterday was sort of a miss. Yes, we kept to the routine. But not one of us found anything to buy. We had cash at the ready, had expected to do some shopping, and nothing. We turned up empty handed. Oh well. There's always next time.

And for now,
I'll stick to the local thrift stores.
Much cheaper anyways. :)

What did you do this weekend?
Happy Monday!
