a wonderful little shop..."The Vintage Emporium"

On my recent, annual trip to Orange County, CA for our event, we were able to sneak in a few fun little jaunts...topping the list was our visit to "The Vintage Emporium" in Long Beach...

What a delight -- Julie's store is wonderful... (...for those of you that know "Rose Petal Porch" -- Joyce we found your twin sister -- separated at birth!!) This store has an uber cute vibe with oodles of vintage finds at fab prices -- I bought a cute table that I now have to get shipped -- silly me -- but I could not live without it!
Here I am with Julie... she is a delight!

And here's a peek at the shop...these images are a bit dark -- we were there in the evening -- so next time I need to be there during the day to get some brighter shots...

Here's Julie with Earth Angels' Marie Pendley of "Derby Blooms"...Marie lives in the area and she is a regular at the shop....thanks to Marie for sharing this local haunt!

Keep scrolling for my fave shots of the store and her displays...
Here's what Julie's website says about her shop:

The Vintage Emporium is a small gift shop located in the Historic California Heights area of Long Beach, California. It is filled with unique one of a kind vintage treasures, that show their years in style rather than wear. The quaint little shop is a cozy pocket filled with delightful things, from vintage linens, collectible pottery, shabby chic furnishings, and 50's purses and hats, to a fabulous array of funky costume jewelry. If you are looking for that perfect accent piece to finish off a room in your home, or a gift for someone special, the Vintage Emporium has something for everyone. Stop by soon and bring a friend!




Krys, Melody and Jennifer loved it all...
