The High Desert has charmed me with its variety of antique shopping venues. I’m captivated by the personalities of the shop owners, vendors, and visitors from near and far. Browsing through vintage nooks and crannies of the individually designed spaces creates an aura of nostalgia.
Shopping at Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures on Route 66 in the High Desert’s Oro Grande is like going back in time to an old western village. Step inside the front gate into a yard of garden art, antique finds, and all kinds of vintage goodies. The latest addition, Deadwood Mercantile, celebrated a grand opening last Saturday, March 16th. Y’all have to come by this fun place where you’ll chuckle at the comical signs. You’ll leave wantin’ to go saddle up your horse just so you can go sportin’ the vintage western gear you found at the mercantile.
Owners Jesse and Marie are mighty delightful, so much you want to sit down for a visit over a cup of lemonade or iced tea. These are the kind of folks that make the blogging life fun.
Saturday was a day of sunshine, fun, and snacking while celebrating with Jesse and Marie. Cookies and water were offered to all who attended the grand opening. An anti aging NeriumAD cream display was also featured in the front yard. Two names were drawn for giveaway prizes, an adorable floral basket planter and rooster hanger, rocking chair planter and plant. Festivities on a sun-shiny day with beautiful people made the day a memorable one.
You’re invited back to view the photo collage later Tuesday and to meet another vendor, Vee. The collage includes photos taken by Angie at Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures on Saturday, March 16th, 2013,
