A few weeks back, a friend and I journeyed to Lake Elsinore hearing tales of a place called Thriftique. (See August Archives “She’s Thrifty Thrifty Thrifty”) We heard a rumor that Thriftique would be launching a new store to be called “Vintique” just around the corner. So to get my husband and child to go along with yet another “treasure hunt” I used a “quick pit stop” in Elsinore as a ploy to do some investigating. So en route to San Juan Capistrano, we pulled off at the much-anticipated “Vintique.” SUCKERS! Our pit stop turned into a time warp. What a joyous occasion!
The fab owners graciously allowed me to take photographs and drool all over their premises. It must be said: Vintique has it all: French country to kitsch, Victorian to mid-century modern. You will find reading rooms for young and old, sewing and fabric rooms, there is something for everyone. Whatever makes you hot, baby….come get your fix at Vintique. I’ll just shut up and let the pictures do the talking….but before I do, can I just say NEW FAVORITE PLACE!??!
If you’re a local reader, you’re in luck. Lake Elsinore’s Vintique is just a drive away. If you’re not….get your own fave! Seat’s taken!
I will open my heart and home to anyone who wishes for a day jaunt to Vintique. Let me be your guide. Really. Holla at me.
My love for midcentury surfaced after inheriting a couple pieces of my very fashionable grandmother's MCM furniture. I'd always loved clean lines...and became obsessed. I am a hard working single mother of two adorable boys and a clownish Frenchie named Petunia.
I've lived all over Southern California, Dallas, Texas and relocated to Bainbridge Island, WA to escape the heat, crowds and soak up the nature and MCM.

I am a local reader. Thanks for the tip.
You’re so welcome! And thanks for the yard reno inspiration! I wrote a blog on my frustration with trying to create a MCM landscape, and you NAILED IT!
