New Basket Give-Away at Cadillac Antiques in Lucerne Valley

We just heard the news! Cadillac Antiques is gearing up for their first year anniversary with a Blog Basket Give-Away in July. It’s been nearly a year since the shop first opened in the Pueblo Building in Lucerne Valley. To celebrate, owners Patty, Ralph, Charlene and Dave have decided to fill a huge basket with everything donated from the store, its consignment vendors, and High Desert Blogging members.

Cadillac Antiques has Car-lectibles and furniture, glassware, and paintings and great gifts

Watch here for the latest news as the basket begins to fill with collectible goodies, new and used gifts of all sorts, plus a few re-purposed “car-lectibles” — auto parts with a new lease on life as chromed gadgets, and what-nots. We don’t know what surprises are inside. READ MORE »

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.

Only 6 Days Left for Sugar Shack’s Basket Give-Away

With only 11 days before Christmas, shopping ideas might be just what you’re looking for. A gift of a bygone era — as in collectibles and small antiques —  can brighten anyone’s holiday. We have so many vintage and antiques in the High Desert to choose from.

 

Vintage, Antiques, and Candy

Sugar Shack

What if you are searching for a gift for children or teens and venturing into an electronics store is a bit overwhelming? Why not try candies and confections instead? I don’t know of anyone who would turn down candy!

Right now Sugar Shack, one of the newest candy shops  on Route 66 in Oro Grande, is stocking its shelves with the scent of peppermint and chocolate. There’s more, of course, but those are my favorite flavors. They offer sugar-free candies, too.

Even better is the Autumn Blog Basket Give-Away continuing with the latest entry basket at Sugar Shack. It’s crammed with everything: some candy, a number of collectibles, handmade and crafty items, and I think I saw an antique, too. Their basket drawing is set for Dec. 20th. Nothing to buy. No tickets. No charge at all. Just stop by and sign up. Winner will be notified by phone and email. Winner doesn’t need to be present. it’s High Desert Blogging’s way of thanking our High Desert community for supporting our efforts for the past 3 years.

Some of their regular shoppers at Sugar Shack come in just for their morning coffee and a pastry. The shop also offers a collection of antiques and handmade crafts, and collectibles — I saw “Betty Boop” collection looking at me from the shelf. As Sugar Shack grows, mother and daughter owners, Debbie Justice and Tonya Edwards, will expand their line of goodies. They currently house three vendors who offer the handmade goods.

Betty Boop is alive and well and living at Sugar Shack

Sugar Shack collectibles, candies, and antiques open early 6 am Monday through Friday and close by 5 pm. On weekends they open 10 am until 5 pm. Their new store number is (760) 646-0562.

You can find out more about them and some daily specials on Facebook. Go To: www.Facebook.com/sugarshackHD

Stop in and say “hi” to Debbie and Tonya, get a hot mug of coffee, and let your sweet tooth do the shopping.

Desert Cottage Joins Autumn Basket Give-Away

 

Grace and elegance are the best words to describe The Desert Cottage, a home repurposed into a fashion plate for vintage and antique pieces. It was such a pleasure walking slowly through what seemed like endless shops in one. Each room and cozy niche was tastefully decorated in vintage style with different themes. With 20 vendors, the mix is a true adventure.

Basket Winners Announced for “Enchanted Treasures’ and “Salvaged & Tattered” Vintage Shops Held Nov 16

Surrounded by her Enchanted Treasures, Linda Marie gathered a basket full of goodies for the drawing.

It was a beautiful day in the High Desert for a Autumn Basket Give-Away. The first vintage shop Angie and I traveled to, out in Oro Grande on National Trails Highway, was Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures. Old Town Oro Grande has several old whitewashed brick buildings that are receiving facelifts and new tenants. But Linda Marie’s has been an anchor store for many years, and the first to sponsor a basket in her shop.

If you haven’t made the trek out there, it’s filled with outdoor imagination. Wander through little mazes of amazing stuff. Booth owners make changes often so the inventory moves. Here, patio furniture and almost anything get a new upcycled life. At the front is an antiques and collectibles shop housed in an old adobe turned showcase. “It’s a solid building,” says Linda, “even when the trains go by, the glass items may ring and jingle, but nothing falls.”

Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures is just down the street from these new shops. In fact, she opened a second shop, Salvaged & Tattered, with the assistance of vendor Virginia Martinez and others. This shop is flaunting a white and cream, lacy vintage theme. It makes you want to stop and gaze  around at the many designs and sparkly jewels, lamps, and bric-a-brac that make vintage shops so charming.

The drawing for the winner of the basket sponsored by Enchanted Treasures was held at 11 am. And the winner is Ceily Highburger from Colorado, who happened to be on vacation out West! What a surprise.

We walked down the street to see how Salvaged & Tattered was doing. In only a month, since their doors opened, manager “Vee”  agreed that the traffic into the shop has been very steady. And that’s understandable with the lure of many shops in one convenient location.

Our Autumn Blog Basket Give-Away was also planned for this Saturday drawing, so with a faux drum roll please …

Ruth Guffey from the High Desert was drawn as the winner of a beautiful wire basket full of vintage goodies, some food items, and little secrets stuffed inside. Congratulations, ladies!

Another door down is Silver Trails specializing in native Indian jewelry and antiques. Engaged couple Patrick Morton and Maddie enjoy collectibles and hunting for antiques that shoppers will love. Just open 30 days ago, traffic and sales are encouraging. It’s early yet, so vintage shoppers can find some new goodies at Silver Trails. They also offer lay-away. They are another one of our newest basket sponsor for our Bloggers Basket Give-Away. You’ll find them at 19248 National Trails Hwy. Their number is (760) 484-6300.

Besides the fact that Angie and I will be returning December 6th for our basket drawing at Silver Trails, another store opening in December promises to fill our sweet tooths. An old-fashioned candy store with sodas and other goodies is tempting us. Can’t wait to see what’s inside!

 Open! Open ! Open!

 Later, we’ll meet another newcomer to High Desert’s sudden bloom of vintage shops.

Historically, gypsies have been known to travel, so when Vintage Gypsies moved into Old Town district of Apple Valley, the move was well worth it. Reopening last month, Vintage Gypsies displays antiques and collectibles, outdoor décor, and their own line of scented lotions and handmade soaps. Antiques above all else, shoppers stop and gaze up, around, and down to take it all in. “We really do like the extra attention we’re getting. Old Town location is great,” said Becky, during the Grand Opening. She and her partners, Kathy and Kevin, all seem so

Cadillac Antiques Cruises Into the High Desert

 

The quaint pueblo-styled building that once housed Country Styles Western wear for many years is now home to Cadillac Antiques in Lucerne Valley. It’s the most appropriate spot for the new venture run by two local couples, Char and Dave, Patty and Ralph. Or was that Dave and Patty, Ralph and Char? Their shop opened with a bang on July 4th, but this weekend is its Grand Opening.

 

Step into Cadillac Antiques

Vintage Dressy Doll and Carousel Horse

On Saturday visitors to the antique shop indulged in free hot dogs and sodas out on the open patio, while inside, shoppers wandered through every little nook and intriguing corner. It will take hours to investigate it all. Cadillac Antiques did take advantage of every room to display their ceramic and glass figurines, furniture, handcrafted items, vintage dolls, mid-century collectibles, and jewelry.

There’s even something for the guys,” said Patty Muldoon, pointing to the long back wall that stretched from one end of the building to the other. “We have unusual ‘garage art’ items that are repurposed auto parts, even mid-century bicycles finding a second life as chromed lamps, statues, and what Dave and Ralph call ‘car-lectibles.'”

Grand Opening of Cadillac Antiques

Char and new vendors show excitement during the Grand Opening

Cadillac Antiques is gaining staff support and antique variety through its eight vendors, who will be learning the ropes and working behind the counter. Patty said that they select their vendors by the quality of the vintage and antique items that they have displayed in other locations around the Victor Valley. It’s one way of keeping the selections of high quality. They also take items on consignment.

Local shoppers who remember the style of the pueblo building will be very comfortable walking into the front parlor. They’ve repainted and redesigned the layout but left the character of the old wood floors and plaster walls in place as a welcoming grande dame of the valley.

For those who want to tell all their antique-hunting friends, Cadillac Antiques is at 32090 Highway 18 on the north side as you enter town. Their hours are currently 10-5 Tuesday through Sunday. Closed Mondays. Their phone is 760-248-2829. Tell them that Rusty sent you.

Vintage Shopping in the High Desert

Summer Flowers at Linda Marie's

Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures

Looking for places to go vintage shopping in the High Desert? I know just the place – Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures in Oro Grande is like a little village of vintage. Located at 19222 National Trails Hwy, Oro Grande, California, it’s about an hour and a half from LA and three hours from Las Vegas.

Lovely Linda Marie or her assistants will greet you with a friendly welcome. Browse through the vintage cottage then make your way outdoors to the village of vendors’ vintage finds. You’ll enjoy this quaint fun place.

 

 

 

 

 

A recent trip to Linda Marie’s inspired me as always with the cute sinks and baskets of flowers. Such inspiration from previous trips there had me itching to start my own sink gardens.
