Antique Week at the Beach!

February 8 begins another Antique Week or 10 days of vintage-retro festivities at Lincoln City Oregon. Plans for this year include: appraisals, a concert, scavenger hunt, glass float beachcombing, quilt documentation, and an Abraham Lincoln play.
For me, though, it’s always about the antiques themselves. There are some great antique shops and malls to visit while in the city. The Rocking  Horse is a double decker wonder, while the Little Antique Mall winds around and has  hidden back rooms to explore! Granny’s Attic is cozy with deals and Days Catch does double duty as a pawn shop and antique store. 
And don’t forget the thrift stores! Goodwill always has new items daily. The Elks thrift store is hidden beneath the Elks Building and has vintage items to peruse.

PS. Catch ads in Craigslist too for garage sales and yard sales available on the weekends.

Great Deals At The Beach!

Great Deals At The Beach!

There are some hidden deals that can be found when beachcombing at Lincoln City, Oregon. No, not glass floats or seashells, but discounted meals all year round! All you have to do is check local papers like Oregon Coast Today and the Central Oregon Restaurant Guide. Both papers are free locally.
Inside, you will find discount coupons for popular restaurants such as Momiji, a fusion Asian cuisine restaurant located at the outlet mall. They have sushi as well as noodle and bento meals. If you are up for a bit of a drive, but want a great view, the Surfrider at Fogarty Creek, just outside of Depoe Bay, also has $5.00 off coupons available.
Another restaurant, 60’s Café is located in Lighthouse Square near the casino.  They have $1.00 off coupons in both papers. They serve diner food, awesome milkshakes, and have a great décor with model toys and other period items.  If you are up for pizza, Gallucci’s, Papa Murphy’s and Humble Pie Pizzaria all have coupons available.
And don’t forget A-1 Beach Rentals for all your lodging needs. The third night’s stay is free through January 31 at all rentals except Moonbreaker, Surf’s Up, and Seabird.
P.S. Another great place to check for coupons, is the back of your Safeway receipt.
