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 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!
