A hidden gem named the Cedros Design District exists in Solana Beach ( north San Diego county ).
There are about 85 quirky, independently owned shops selling everything from antiques to plants to home furnishings to pet supplies to clothing and more.
It's a great way to spend a beautiful afternoon.
House of Vintage is one of the Cedros Design District most quirky shops and I believe the sign out front says it all,
"This is not a museum-this junk is for sale"
In the back of the converted house is a room full of vintage everything sewing- from patterns to trims to notions to threads to all sorts of odds and ends.
But make no mistake- the stuff is OLD.
The doors of this cabinet are old wooden yardsticks glued together.
I'm totally using this idea somewhere in my sewing studio...
now I just have to start buying up wooden yardsticks!
And on top of the fabulous wooden yardstick door cabinet was the crown jewel of sewing related items.
A vintage Brother sewing machine in the most delicious shade of PINK!
No idea if it works or not but, when it's that pretty who cares.
