It’s always fun to shop here, whether it’s window shopping (on the days you’re trying not to spend money) or bargain shopping (on the days when you hit the Silverthorne Outlet Stores because the deals are too good to pass up.) One of my favorite places to hang out and wander around is Breckenridge. I have been going to Joy of Sox since before The Loopy Ewe. I used to buy socks there, but now I just look at their cute earrings and other accessories. I still like the name of the shop. (And so does Loopy, who wanted to be in the photo.) I also love going to Creatures Great and Small. They have fun things in there, but I spend most of my time looking at the Trollbeads and Chamilia beads. Plus, the owners are wonderful. The little yellow house is 111 years old, and they’ve been there for 23 years.
We always finish the day here by having pizza at Downstairs at Erics. (Yes, you do have to go down the stairs to get to the restaurant.) The only thing I don’t like about being up here in the mountains is the altitude. After a few days, you find that you don’t get so out of breath climbing a flight of stairs (FPS), but this t-shirt seemed really appropriate today.
