charming vintage shops of Breck

I just returned from a great weekend in Breckenridge with some of my besties. Such a charming town filled with funky little shops bursting with unique items. While my gf's tore up the slopes I read, walked around, did yoga and got a fab and much-welcomed massage (Oh and they "used me" to reserve the BEST spots for the apres-ski...I gladly obliged :). And although I craved a few more days to exlore I made the best of the time that I had there. TWO of my fave shops were MARIGOLDS farmhouse funk and junk and MAGICAL SCRAPS boutique and studio. They were both filled with hand-made items...many from recycled items creatively re-invented. Bravo to these artist who make the world a more beautiful place while keeping items out of landfills AND to these shop owners for giving them a venue to showcase their work! Enjoy the photos and never stop exploring how you might turn "trash" into treasure.
