Pink Saturday - Trashy pink

Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!

Driving on a California highway, in the town of Buellton, we pulled over at this sign. A small white house in a commercial strip, a sign and an inviting pink chair outside.

Inside, a treasure trove of vintage kitsch. And - for some reason - the color pink dominated.

I spoke to the owner, who partnered in the store with her daughter and another friend. She said that her daughter was a great collector, for whom the hunt was as much - or more - fun than owning things. She'd finally decided to put her findings on sale.

There were amazing things. Trashy stuff.

Exquisite stuff. Cool stuff. All arranged in the most inviting displays, and cramming the tiny structure to the gills with things.

If you ever get a chance to go to Buellton, CA, in the beautiful Santa Barbara wine country, you should check out Pink Trash. It's right on route 246, in the center of town. Enjoy it!

You'll be glad you did!

What a brilliant idea to sell all the stuff.

That exquisite china looks right up my alley.

My husband did a play at a winery right near there - called Bedford Thompson Winery. I remember eating in Buellton.

My girlfriend and I stopped to explore our find. The store was not open. No tel# posted on door.Checked at nearby resturant -the store never did open. Some great stuff was just laying in the back yard. We joked about taking pictures of the things we took and leaving a check in the door. We did not, but you can bet I will attempt again.
