Great Finds in Steveston

The weather man was calling for sunshine today so my best gal and I walked into Steveston for some exercise and a leisurely morning.

Bird Teapot

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.

French Macaroons

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.

So much for getting some exercise… I’m sure all the eating negated any benefit of the walk.
It was totally worth it.
