Look : : Afternoon Stroll (MDFW)
No making fun -- my mama was wise to wear athletic shoes this day! I decided to show her around Sherman Oaks, my little corner of LA county. I absolutely love my neighborhood! There are so many little shops and eateries, all within walking distance. After growing up in a small farm town with the nearest Starbucks a fifteen-minute drive away, I'm super excited about my current living situation!
We began our four-mile walk with frozen yogurt at Spoon Itt (mine is the one piled high with chocolatey goodness). We then popped into a few shops, including a wedding dress one -- just for fun! -- and Buffalo Exchange. I've ranted about selling there before, but buying is a completely different experience! I purchased two items for $6. ♥
The next store we went to was Handmade Galleries LA. It's like an in-person Etsy extravaganza with all different types of beautiful artists. How cool is that Fight Club painting? Starbucks was next (hot coffee for her, iced tea for me) and then a late lunch at Marmalade Cafe!
