This seems to be a favorite for many. The clean lines and retro vibe are all the rage. New items are coming in weekly as many are leaving the shop!

|Nice and sturdy love seat, perfect for a dorm room!|

|These are the big steam activated processors, and then they|
recycle the steam and the grains after they leave this area. I wish
you could see the beautiful tile work surrounding these vats.

I've been back for a few weeks now and can finally come up for air! We had such a wonderful time in Colorado. I was never really into history until I started exploring old ghost towns when I lived in Dillon in the early 80's, now I can never get enough. The buildings tell the most amazing stories!
This was a brand new area for both Ed and I. A friend that IN moved there a few years ago, and spoke so fondly of the town of Victor, we had to check it out! It was once a town of 15,000, a busting town with a gold mine, and still has an operating gold mine that harvests about a million dollars worth a day! The town is only a fraction of the people it once had, and lots of stores sit empty, but Judy and her husband have brought so many of them back to life. We stayed at their renovated boarding house.

|Some of the homes in the area-Cropple Creek|
|Cripple Creek is now a gambling town (totally redoing the roads).|
|Salida, CO is known for its great Art shops and yes we had to explore those too!|
|This was an awesome Antique store. Still had all the fixtures from it's former|
life as a hardware store. Leadville, CO
