Some little treasures that I found.
When I first started my blog, I said that I was going to write about great places to shop near where I live in California. Well, here is my first posting about such places.
Over the years, I have had the pleasure of discovering great shops to go and browse through for little treasures. Trust me, I have found many great places here in California, however this little gem of a shop, Remember When, is in my home town, Modesto.
Kari is the sweet shop owner of Remember When. She has been in business for three years and her former shop was located on Scenic Drive before moving to this location. Her shop is chock full...and I mean hold on tight to your purses chalk full..of fun treasures. You can find kitsch, vintage, cottage style collectibles, wonderful dishes and glassware, garden accessories, fountains, birdhouses, baskets, signs, furniture, mirrors, handmade candles and a whole bunch of other goodies.
She loves to decorate and has always wanted to own her own shop. Her favorite part of owning her own business is meeting new people and sparking up conversations. Remember When is known in the community for having reasonable prices. Even the dealers will frequent her shop to find that great deal. If you are down this way, stop by for a visit. She'll usually ask if you'd like a cup of coffee or a cookie!
Kari also rents out sections of her shop to those who would like to sell their items there.
Remember When is located at:
3012 McHenry Avenue, Suite C, Modesto, Ca. 95350
