I haven't been there in about 3 years and boy have things changed. Unfortunately, a lot of my favorite stores are gone. And the economy is definately affecting this area.
First we stopped in Dewey. There is about 8 buildings that all look like an old town.
The first place we stopped in Prescott was LUNCH at the Gurley St. Grill. It is our favorite because of their....
This is one of the old buildings in Old Prescott.
One of the main streets is named Whiskey Row....apparently, this was where the bars were in the town's early days. Mostly now, it is little restaurants and boutiques.
This is the Courthouse. Prescott is the county seat for Yavapai county. This is a gorgeous building inside. We didn't go there today though.
I just love their old lamp posts and the huge baskets of flowers hanging from them. See the gorgeous blue sky. It was a beautiful day...
I went into a little store that unfortunately is going out of business....it was so cute. Very sad.
This was the dressing room. That is just too cute.
Oh ladies...looky at all the cloches! But man oh man, even at SALE prices, they were out of my budget!
Ok, now you know I went here for all you PINK bloggers out there! This was a fantastic store. I did buy some gift items here.... here are two things I didn't buy. Not that I didn't want them....I just didn't!
My hubs actually told me to go back and buy this fantastic stained glass purse with the dingles on it....but I told him he really didn't need to spend that kind of money on it. Not that it wasn't, well, purely yummy!
We saw the cutest ice cream shop that had all this popcorn and candy in it. We did have a scoop of ice cream.
Remember all these old fashioned candy sticks!
This was the tin ceiling in the entire ice cream shop. Well, we were getting to my favorite time of day, the antique shops. And my hubs dropped me off and guess where my camera was...yep, in the car. I could not believe the prices of the antiques. I am much richer than I thought!!!! I did get just a couple of things, which will be another post! Sorry, but I don't want to bore you to sleep!
