On the way up to Gaviota Beach during Memorial Day weekend, we decided to take a detour and stop for lunch in Carpinteria, a quaint city just before Santa Barbara. I was pleasantly surprised when i saw the many antique stores that lined the one-street town. I couldn't help but poke around. I was the quintessential kid in the labyrinthine candy shop.
When I retire, I want to open up a shop on the Central Coast where I would lavishly display all my salvaged vintage pieces that I've collected over the years!
