The Trip from Heaven

First, let me introduce you to:
Sir P. Townsend The Junk/Yard Goat

He was found on the deck at my friends sisters home.
I fell in love with him (odd taste, I know) and when I
told her she said he was for sale. They had planned on
putting him in their store in Pt. Townsend.

This is their store.....Summer House. It is by far the best
little shop in town. It is full of fun things both new and old.
Visit their web site
and if in Pt. Townsend, stop will not be sorry!!

This is a picture from the deck at their home.
We sat on the deck to visit as the sun set.

And this is where we stayed. A wonderful hotel within
walking distance of downtown Pt. Townsend.

Isn't it just a great looking place? Very charming. And
our room had a separate bedroom and a kitchen included.

This is the lobby.

And the ceiling...gorgeous!!!!!

This was the most interesting looking thrift shop we
stopped to explore.

This truck was parked outside. UGH!!!!

This store in Pt. Townsend allows you to buy 10 items
at 50% off during your birthday month. Well, it just
happened that my friend Karen had a birthday in Aug.

While you shop they have you wear the Birthday Hat.
Karen found treasures and reaped the benefit of being
an Aug. Birthday Woman!!

In three days we hit 18 thrift stores and two garage sales.
Both g sales were people who had had a shop or had
done flea markets. Such good finds!!
The drive up and back takes 5 hours each way. We also
spent time exploring Pt. Townsend....eating at great
restaurants, seeing cute shops, touring the quaint streets,
seeing darling cottages and beautiful homes. It is a great city.

We stopped in Pt. Orchard on the way up and on the way

There were many stops to be made. We visited Longview,
Lacy, Olympia, Pt. Orchard, Bremerton, Pt. Townsend, and

We went to many Goodwills.....

Some Value Villages....

But we couldn't go to this shop because it was out of
business....wonder why.....
This was the best junk trip in the world. We went non-stop
every day...our time was booked! Karen is the person who
really introduced me to junking in the 60's. She is fun and
easy to be with and just one of the most wonderful women
in my life. We came home with many treasures and I will
show those in another post.
Until then, be safe and well,

Sir P is a real cutie, and I can see why he just had to come home with you! And I'm pretty excited by that idea of using an old birdfeeder to display a nest. Definitely going to borrow that idea. Looks like you had a great trip, and it's always fun to discover new thrift stores!

Hello my friend! Thanks for visiting my blog! I too had trouble accessing my own blog, something to do w/ domain name registration. Hopefully it's sorted out. Looks like you had a nice time in Port Townsend. I've loved our cooler summer, even if I haven't hit the sales!!

Hope you can make it to the Camas Vintage Street Faire. It will be good to see you
