Alice and I were wandering around old towne Orange one weekend and smitten by the quirky shops in the area. In the past few years, retailers and restauranteurs have gone in to freshen up the area, attracting younger folks without compromising its history and charm. Alice took these pictures with her DSLR. Enjoy!
The Bruery Provisions ($5 beer flights and gourmet food stuff)
Spotted Moth (a more affordable, indie version of Urban Outfitters)
Eikon was hands down my favorite retailer. It’s a home furnishing store with quirky knickknacks like soaps from Provence, antique map of Paris wrapping paper, childrens books (my fav), pillows, etc. John, the quiet, Zen-like owner studied graphic design in college and now does interior design consultations on the side while scouring for fun items for his store. LOVE IT!
Don’t forget to grab a buttermilk waffle sandwich from Bruxie, across from Chapman U. Best darn fried chicken sandwich (below is a pulled pork sandwich).
