Valentine’s Day Shopping Day Trip to So Cal’s High Desert

Valentine's Day Shopping at Sugar Shack

Do some retro shopping early for Valentine’s Day. Take a day trip from LA or Las Vegas to Oro Grande’s vintage shops on Route 66. It’s only 1-1/2 hours from LA and 3 hours from Las Vegas. Here are a few of the shops:

  • Silver Trails Antique Store, 19248 National Trails Hwy Suite C, Oro Grande, California
  • Sugar Shack, 19248 National Trails Hwy, Oro Grande, California
  • Salvaged & Tattered, 19248 National Trails Hwy, Oro Grande, California
  • Antique Station, 19176 National Trails Highway, Oro Grande, CA 92368

Silver Trails and Sugar Shack are hosting a Valentine’s Day basket giveaway. Enter to win when you visit their store (winners need to pick up the baskets).

Sugar Shack is a candy-antiques-vintage store. You can fill up a gift bag easily with all the goodies in this shop. Make time to sit and drink some coffee while you’re there – and treat yourself to some candy.

Down the road about 15 minutes from the Oro Grande vintage shops is a place that book lovers will enjoy – Hi Desert Book Oasis Book Store. The book store is located in the historic Apple Valley Inn. They have books galore and an adorable corner for kids to play.

You’re bound to get hungry on your day trip. A few doors away from Sugar Shack and Silver Trails is a pizza restaurant, Cross Eyed Cow Pizza. If you prefer something different than pizza, try Maxwell’s (burgers, salads) or Overland’s Meat Deli (the best) are on Hwy. 18 between Oro Grande, to Hi Desert Book Oasis.

If you run out of time on your Valentine’s Day shopping day trip, no need to worry. Plan another High Desert shopping trip. Vintage enthusiasts will love visiting the area’s antique shops.

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.

The High Desert’s Smoketree Junction Antiques, 815 Hwy 138/Oasis Rd in Pinion Hills and Vintage Gypsies, located at 20601 HWY 18 Apple Valley cottage 302, Apple Valley, are the places to go for flea market days this first Saturday of March.

Try out your haggling skills at Smoketree Junction Antiques’ Haggle Days. Meet the vendors and negotiate a great deal. Shop at the Saturday Flea Market, or barter at the Sunday Barter Market. Mark your calendar for every first weekend of the month. This is an outdoor event, but do go inside the shops and visit the outdoor nursery where you’ll find amazing yard art for sale.

Ask a shop vendor in Smoketree Junction Antiques to direct you to Andrea’s space to find the decorative push pins and her many other artistic beauties. Browse through G&A’s rustic country upcycled space where you’ll see 30% off of everything – you’ll find the wine cork boards there.

Take extra spending money and don’t be in a big hurry because you don’t want to miss this fabulous weekend at Smoketree Junction Antiques.

Now for those of you meandering over to Apple Valley to do some vintage shopping, mark an A1 on your to-do list for Saturday, March 2nd, to go by the Vintage Gypsies shop. You’ll find anything from romantic accessories to wear to rustic upcycled decor and everything in between – even a revolutionary skin care product called NeriumAD that is showing amazing, true, real results and improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, and aging skin. Find out more about the vintage giveaway opportunity for those who sign up for the skin care product.
