When I told my friends I was spending my anniversary in a trailer park they were not amused. He is taking you where?! They asked. Let me explain… I have a soft spot for pretty much all things vintage, so a restored airstream trailer near a ghost town/old western movie set, with antique shopping galore was right up my alley. You see, I had been dying to check it out so I went by myself a few months ago for a one night getaway.
This was my trailer at Kate’s Lazy Desert in Landers, CA. Ever heard of Landers? It’s right near beautiful Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. It’s remote enough to make you feel like you’ve completely left the concrete jungle behind you, but close enough to pretty much anything you’d need. I loved this little nook of love so much I had to bring my sweetheart back to check it out. Which brings me to last Friday…
Route 62 was my favorite. There was milk glass, amber glass, vintage blankets, sheets, kitchen utensils, the cutest cake tins, clothes for me, clothes for baby, clothes for you, oh the list goes on.
Then we made our way to Pioneertown in Yucca Valley during the day. We had gone the night before to Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace to see the Cold War Kids play and were blown away by delicious BBQ and drinks at the historic wild west watering hole in the mountains.
All in all, I’d have to say it was one darn good Friday. What special places do you like to go to for a one night getaway?
