Victorian Closet

A few days after Christmas we had a "girls day out" and explored Sutter Creek, Amador City, and Drytown, three historic towns about 45 miles southeast of Sacramento.  Oh what fun!!  I just had to share one of my favorite shops of the day, Victorian Closet in Amador City.

I could have spent hours in here.  It was packed floor to ceiling with vintage clothing, shoes, hats, buttons, lace, ephemera, lingerie, linens, quilts, trunks, and more. Of course I noticed the fabulous brick walls, wood floors, and display cases too!  The link to her website was broken, but you can read more about this fabulous shop here.  I took these pictures with my phone because I didn't want to carry my camera around all day; must save the other arm for carrying all my purchases, right?  I'll just let the pictures do the talking.....


























Thanks for shopping with me.

Wow! The inventory does the name justice - it really IS a Victorian Closet (and here I was going to make a naughty reference to the "trunks" sign).

Love the hats and shoes.

And you know who is going to go nuts over all those buttons! ;)

Thanks for sharing this amazing place!
