Even though I have lived in the land of Red for 5 years now, I still love exploring new shops and recently I ran into a thrift store that is new to me. It was FULL of finds. Norm and I (yes! another Norm friendly place!) spent about 1 1/2 hours perusing through many of the lovely vintage items. This shop is State Street West @ 617 W. State Street in Redlands CA.
I am a Snoopy fanatic and just fell in love with theses beauties from the 60s. This Nancy Drew Collection is waiting to be snatched up, don't cha think?
Besides being a lovely shop it supports a wonderful cause. The owner, Newman Millholon, runs State Street West to support an orphanage in Belize which his parents started in 1958 when they worked there as missionaries.
Newman is a sweetheart. Like I said, I spent about and hour and a half there and felt like we had been good old friends. On my way out I noticed this little sign above and it made me chuckle. Gotta love a shop with a sense of humor. If you ever find yourself in the land of Red, this is a great place to stop, shop and make a new friend.
