The weather man was calling for sunshine today so my best gal and I walked into Steveston for some exercise and a leisurely morning.
Although the sun ended up retreating behind the clouds, we had a wonderful time! Mochas at Starbucks were followed by browsing the stores on Moncton Street. We ended up visiting the Steveston General Store, a consignment shop on 1st Ave, to browse antiques and knick knacks. I am head-over-heels for their eclectic selection of tea cups, and had to restrain myself from walking away with their whole collection.
I was really impressed with the inventory in Lofty Living right now. We spent lots of time taking in all the beautiful pieces there. A whole display table was dedicated to tea and tea accessories – I was in heaven! A particular teapot caught my interest, and although it was too cumbersome to walk all the way home with, I will be back for it!
I did purchase the cutest tea bag holder. How perfect, as I always place my tea strainer on a soy sauce dish for lack of a better place. It was so cute that, again, I had to restrain myself from walking away with more! I also left with a gorgeous, cast iron, wall mounted key holder that I will set aside for putting up in our first house. It has fabulous antique keys embossed on it.
After satisfying our sushi craving at Ichiro Japanese Restaurant, I introduced my girlfriend to Sugar Art on 2nd Avenue. She walked away with a caramel chocolate mousse and I bought their French macaroons since they remind me of our trip to Paris.
