Vallejooooooo, the yay areeeaa! (to be read in e40 voice)

18 Jul

Yay! My favorite rest stop in California is open again.

While I was driving my wonderful friend Jake to San Francisco last weekend, I finally remembered to check out the modern face lift of the Vallejo rest stop. I had been meaning to check it out since its completion earlier this year, but hanging out at rest stops alone isn’t something that makes me feel completely comfortable. This one might change that though, it is so cute and clean  and there is good toilet paper AND there are picnic tables that overlook Six Flags and parts of Vallejo. Is it strange that I really want to have a picnic at a rest stop on the side of a freeway that is in a sad little town 45 minutes from my house?

Anyway, I like it. Check it out! Bring picnic fixings. ;)

 

And, in honor of one of the only good things to come from Vallejo – I give you my favorite e40 song =D

 

Thrifting: Berkeley, Oakland, and Vallejo (Part One)

I finally got a Saturday off. Serene doesn’t get to go thrifting with us  very often, so we all hopped on the opportunity of group thrift-scoring. We decided we should check out the East Bay. Starting off in Berkeley, then going to Oakland and working our way down. Coffee was a must.

Oh and breakfast.

Weekend Excursions: Bay Area

12 Nov

I say, we may be taking a day trip to the bay. Oakland is where we’d like to drive, where hopefully we’d arrive to thrift stores that were alive with awesome mid century treasures. That would be a pleasure.

Golly, I sure am excited. Can you recommend any good thrift stores in or near Oakland?

Here are some good lookin’ things that you can check out if you’ll also be in or around the bay area:

Walnut dresser – $79 bucks-Vallejo (original post)

Slat bench – $250 – Glen Park (original post)

This person seems to have been a hoarder. See those blonde end tables and the dresser? They can be viewed at this Aptos estate sale (original post)

Rose would love this. I’m not sure how much it is, but it can be found in Berkeley. (Original post)

Hanging lamp – $145 – San Rafael (original post)

Cute chair – $175 – SF (original post)
