Summer vacation in the United States. Think road trip. You need snacks. You need a good playlist. And, you need a destination.
There hasn't been a summer that hasn't had some kind of road trip for our family. Whether it be from NYC out to the Hamptons, from Denver Airport up to Estes Park, or the usual shuttle between Oglesby, IL to Madison, WI, it's a quintessential part of our summer holidays.
A few weeks ago, the hubby found an awesome website called The Vintage Map, which has listings for some excellent thrift shops, flea markets and vintage boutiques in major cities around the world. Seeing this website gave me an idea for a different kind of road trip this year.
So, that's what I'll be doing this summer. I've plotted out some of my favorite spots and planned to visit some new ones, too. We're going to explore a bit of the scene here in LA and then head to the Midwest, where hidden treasures abound. I'll be sharing my vintage road trip here, with posts that detail my experiences, tips and the treasures I find. I'll be visiting antique markets, vintage boutiques, estate sales and thrift/charity shops and I'll share my observations about each experience.
So, fasten your seat belts and come along with me. You're in charge of keeping the music going and letting me know about any stops you'd like me to make along the way.
