We took a bit of a side trip late Sunday afternoon to browse through some shops on my getaway trip last weekend in Portland.
Actually in Camas, WA; right next to Vancouver WA.
There is one darling little street in the teeny tiny downtown with the dearest shops ever. It was truly a hidden hot spot.
Next time I go I will take more pictures, but here are a few pictures I was able to snap in just the few minutes we were there (Sunday afternoon at 4:40 is not the time to start shopping.)
For starters, take a look at this vintage looking bookcase.(So cute I had to take pictures from two angles)Now, is this not the most fabulous, and cheap idea? I love the yellowed pages decoupaged to the bookcase.
There was an oh-so-cute shop that was closed on Sundays. It's called called "Fancies". Now, any shop named "Fancies" has got to be cute. (Oh, I just can't wait to go back when they are open!)
This sweet little street in downtown Camas was just like something out of Mitford,or Stars Hollow I tell you. It had a quaint diner,darling clothes shops, and Antique shops too.
Oh! And it even had an Automotive repair center named...are you ready for this?... Lemon-Aid Automotive. (Get it? Very Gilmore Girls...) The only thing missing was a Cupcake Bakery.
*sigh* I mean it, I was ready to move, right then and there.
