Desert Trip

Just got back from a road trip. Definitely was a much needed get away. Nothing better than hitting the road in search of adventure thrift stores. Well it just so happens there was a reason for this special trip. It was my husbands birthday and this trip couldn’t have been any better.

Before we hit the road I placed his giant present in front of him, a record player! I must admit I’m totally loving this gift too.  The perfect gift that was well received set the mood for the trip–VINYL Scavenger’s!!! We hit desert swap meets, out of the way freaky thrifts stores and garage sales.  As I am typing I am listening to the best find thus far, Rod Stewart, ” A night on the town”, 1974. One word- Incredible!

While traveling From Pappy and Harriet’s to Palm Springs…. well we went the wrong way for a good bit, but stumbled upon this awesome Bookstore. A cool desert ex-tattooer owned bookstore.. Crazy!!! A wondering maze of cool books!
