Antique Shopping in the High Desert

Mother’s Day is the second most popular gift-giving day of the year! Fashion, coffee shop, and antique shop gifts and gift cards are among the most favorite Mother’s Day gifts women receive. The other three things high on that favorite list are cards, flowers, and going out to eat at a restaurant.

“Give it some thought,” one young wife said she told her husband when he told her she’s hard to buy for. “It doesn’t take much – a card, some flowers, and take me out to eat, and I’m happy,” she said.

Make Mother’s Day meaningful for someone. Know someone whose mother doesn’t live near or a mother whose children live afar? Take her to one of the antique shops in the high desert. Browsing the vendor shops can bring back wonderful memories.

There are several nice antique and gift shops to consider such as Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures and Antique Station out in Oro Grande and The Desert Cottage on Bear Valley Road in Hesperia.

Carriage House Antiques is having a spring sale Saturday, May 10th, 9:00 AM-6:00 PM. Take a pleasant stroll through the vendors’ shops while listening to the special music by Quiet Fire. Fun, food, giveaways and great prices are part of this antique shop’s spring sale day.

Mother’s Day can be filled with mixed emotions.  It’s a day to honor our mothers. If you know someone feeling down, missing a mother, grandmother, aunt, child or other loved one, perhaps you can be that one to bring some cheer by going with them to an antique shop for tea and a cookie.

A smile, a thoughtful word, a card, or flowers will be appreciated. Make it a special day.

California’s Old West Route 66 Antique Shopping

Antique shopping in So Cal’s High Desert should definitely be added to the things-to-do list for visitors to southern California. There are antique and vintage shops to keep one busy for a day or two at least. When a road trip between Los Angeles and Las Vegas is on a traveler’s vacation agenda, shopping in the Victorville, Hesperia, and Apple Valley area will be worth the stop.

Owner Linda Marie of Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures often meets visitors from all over the world that travel the famous Route 66 who stop by her quaint vintage shop. Her shop is not far from I15, and Antique Station is next door. P’s & Q’s Antiques is not far from these two shops, and Vintage Gypsies vintage shop is on Highway 18 in Apple Valley located in the Historic Roy Rogers Apple Valley Inn. Carriage House Antiques in Hesperia only takes minutes to get to from these other shops and definitely is worth seeing.

High Desert Blogging’s featured antique shop this week is Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures. Last weekend one of her new vendors held a grand opening, the Deadwood Mercantile. Browsing the vendor shops outside is what one could imagine taking a shopping trip back to the Old West or to the 1950’s would be like.

A visit to Linda Marie’s shop on Facebook makes it easy to keep up with current vintage finds. The photo collage below captures vintage variety finds the day of March 16, 2013 Deadwood Mercantile grand opening. Guests signed up for giveaway prizes near the gate entry where Nerium Oleander anti-aging treatment cream was displayed by Brand Partner Angela Horn.

High Desert’s Holiday Cheer at Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures

Meet Ms. Linda Marie from Linda Marie’s Enchanted

Treasures in Oro Grande:

Linda Marie from Linda Marie's Enchanted Treasures

On Route 66 in Oro Grande just past the Antique Station on the left, you see what appears to have been a small house at one time. It doesn’t take long, however, to notice that it has been turned into a quaint antique shop. At first you may think, “I’ll zip in and out of here in a jiffy,” (that is if you’re from Texas or understand Texan lingo). Not so. You might zip inside the door alright, but you’ll turn a corner and discover some lovelies, then another corner to discover more lovelies. Have you ever been to Zion or Bryce Canyon National Parks? You drive along amazed and think you’ve just seen the most beautiful scenery ever. Then you turn a corner and stare in awe at even more beauty. That’s what Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures is like for a person who adores vintage treasures and antiques. You walk in and find a room of all kinds of vintage treasures. But you notice another room and another then find out that there are more exciting things when you walk out back. This adorable shop perfectly fits the “enchanted” of its name.

Shop owner, Ms. Linda Marie, invites you to a special occasion. Do go by if you can, and let the charming shop owner know that Angie at High Desert Blogging told you about her friendly welcome and enchanting shop.
