Thrift Trip: Pacific Grove

thrift trip Pacific Grove

Thrifting in Pacific Grove

One of my favorite Thrift Trips from the Bay Area is to the lovely seaside town of Pacific Grove in Monterey County.  A two-hour drive will find you amidst stunning Monterey Bay and Ocean views and scores of thrift stores.  There’s even the Red House Cafe http://www.redhousecafe.com on Lighthouse Avenue where you can enjoy a delicious bite to eat after some heavy thrifting.  Or, if you’d prefer, try Peppers on Forest Avenue for a fresh-squeezed margarita and Mexican fare.

On a recent thrift trip there I found a pair of Italian patent leather boots for $20, a pair of window shades for $7.50 a piece and a remnant of some gorgeous fuscia velvet that I am (eventually) going to re-cover a couple of pillows with for the living room.  Oh yeah, I also found a leather CD holder for 3 bucks.  This town is thriftalicious!
