Shopping with sea breezes swirling at your feet.

Hi everyone,
My last post raved about the quaint little town of Astoria Oregon which I still am talking about 2 months later lol,  but I cannot leave out the other wonderful ocean town that we visited on our trip up north as well. The beach town of Bandon Oregon. Next time here I'd like to stay for a few days because just a couple of hours was not enough! It was a bit foggy the day we visited which was a treat actually because our next stop would be to Redding Calif where that day was forecasted to be 100 degrees, so fog was a welcome friend while there. As we leisurely strolled through the town I happened upon the cutest, creative shop called "Patina" that I must tell you about. One of the owners was in the store that day and we had the best conversation about vintage repurposed treasures and the joy they bring as they are brought back to life with a bit of artistic resourcefulness and creativity. Hope you enjoy the photos and that they bring a bit of creative thinking to your day and give you your own ideas and how to turn trash into treasure. And make sure to stop by this darling shop when ever you visit the beach town of Bandon. You will be happy you did.
Talk to you soon,
Pure joy

Hmmmm, what could I make with these?

Old chair with new charm

Oooohhhhh, treasures!

Love, love, love this wall. Old book pages glued onto wallpaper background.

Vintage dresser drawers used as shelves, genius!!!

Patina owner pulled this out of a garbage pile and turned it into beauty!

Imagination and creativeness is all it takes

Oh good Allegra, I'm glad you liked the post. I knew there were two of you who owned this lovely shop and had artistic talent just didn't catch your name when I visited. I will definitely visit again when I am up your way. You two ladies are so inspiring!
