A Trip to Camas

It was my birthday last week and since I had to work all day, I decided to take a little road trip the next day. I've been reading a lot of blogs that talk about Camas Antiques and thought I'd check it out. I live in the very NW corner of WA, just a few miles from the Canadian border, and Camas is located right along the Oregon border....quite the drive, but well worth it!!  It was a gorgeous day, almost 90 degrees, and smooth sailing on the roads! The town itself is adorable! My favorite part was this cute, old theater...only $3.50 per movie!

I headed straight for the antique mall and was not disappointed! This place is so pretty, great vendors and everything was displayed so beautifully!

Theses are a few of my favorite booths.....

I really wanted to bring home these lockers...if I'd had a truck.....
I loved all the white!
I got some fun things here: a gigantic, industrial muffin tin; some old, metal first aid kits; some vintage school supplies...forgot to take pictures though!!!

I went to a few other shops, including a quilt shop and really enjoyed myself there. I'll definitely go back!!
I got back in the car and decided I had enough time to head back to Seattle and hit University Village. Went to all my favorite stores, including Pottery Barn Kids. I just love all of their ideas and this was one of my favorites of all time! Seems like everyone focuses on Halloween and then heads straight to Christmas. Thanksgiving seems to get overlooked in the process.

Not at PBK!!! 

This table was so adorable! I want to have a children's table at my house this year! I'd have to find some children, but..... I think I will have to be considering this for the future Thanksgivings at "grammy's" house!

I had such a fun day!! And home by 11:30!!!!


  1. How fun for you! Happy belated birthday Holly! I go off on my own but not that far off. Looks like a lot of wonderful stops were made. Have a great week. I'm off to NC with my best friend on Wend. Cannot wait.

    Thanks so much for visiting my space at Camas (House of Harvest)! I am glad you enjoyed it and felt inspired by the lockers. They are from an 1800's railroad, isn't that cool?!
