So while I was googling local bead shops I found what appeared to be the cutest little bead store located in Old Colorado City. Old Colorado is located about 20-30 minutes from where I live so it's not that far of a drive. A couple of weekends ago the whole family decided they wanted to go with me (side note-next time I think I will go by myself. Ha!).
Sadly, once we got there the weather turned to yuckiness and the only store not open at noon on a Saturday was...yep, you guessed it-the bead store. I was definitely bummed because the hours that were displayed said it was open yet all the lights were out and the door was locked (No sign stating "gone to lunch" or "be back later". What a bummer).
I could have gladly kept walking around, snapping pictures all day (even though it had started sprinkling) but the rest of the family wasn't having it. So next time I will call ahead to make sure the bead store is open and more than likely I will go by myself. Either way the 10 minutes that we spent there was pretty nice in my eyes. I hadn't been to Old Colorado in years so I had forgotten how pretty it is there.
It was actually super crowded that day so I was amazed that I was able to get a picture as good as the one above.
I absolutely adored the outside of the Tudor style Puppet Theatre. It totally reminded me of when my family was stationed in England (back in the early 90's). I didn't dare venture inside though since old school puppets tend to give me the heebee-jeebees! I blame my sister for all the times she made me watch Puppet Master with her. Remember those movies?
Even though our trip to Old Colorado didn't go as planned it was still fun to get out and explore. What about you? Any recent trips go differently than you had hoped? If so feel free to share!
