Blogging about vintage finds is a fun hobby for many people to do in the High Desert. Three people within the last week have shared their vintage shopping finds or experiences with me. One collects baby items, and one couple loves to collect antique rustic vintage things. They all go yard saling, looking for that special antique or old vintage piece to add to their collections. The ideal early Saturday or Sunday morning for vintage shoppers is to head out early for yard sales and also stop for breakfast at one of the Molly’s or Rusty’s restaurants (I know there are others, but these are definitely two of my favorites) while out and about. You don’t have to be looking for anything in particular. However, it does help to have a cell phone with a Wi-Fi with you to look up vintage or antique items to check out prices.
When I went by Carriage House Antiques in Hesperia to pick up a layaway last weekend, I couldn’t resist walking around. It’s a relaxing place to shop and dream – and, of course, to buy that vintage item you really don’t want to go home without. One of my favorite vintage items I picked up that day happened to be an old vintage Bible. I opened it to see the price and saw that it said FREE. One thing I like about it is that it has a great concordance in the back. The vintage Bible has a new home now – mine.
