Yes...this has nothing to do with coffee or confections. However...Johnny and I want to share other things too. We really want this to be a place to learn...not only about coffee and sweets...but about cool stuff we might create or find along the way. Last weekend was a day of exploring and finding an adorable and unique shop!
We decided to head up to Cave Creek for the day. We used to live in the area and hadn't had a chance to visit since we've moved back. Wow! Has the little town of Cave Creek grown. It is filled with delicious eateries and unique shops.
We had lunch at a favorite place of ours "Big Earl's" for a tasty hamburger. Big Earl's was a great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. It was one of our most popular stops when we lived up here. It was our reward for all the hill climbing we had accomplished on our bicycles.
The town of Cave Creek reminds me of a little resort/vacation town. Lots of people and activity all around. A great place to sit and watch cool vintage cars and beautiful motorcycles cruise the main part of town.
We decided to walk off our lunch and check out what's new. Super cool and unique shops...nothing "touristy" lots of handmade items and a couple of high end boutique stores for men and women carrying some of the hottest western inspired looks from brands I see in "Cowboys And Indians" magazine.
I wanted to tell you about a cute and unique shop tucked right off the main street. What caught my eye was the small sign they had out on the sidewalk. Attached was a sock that had something obnoxious printed on it and I started laughing. I had to go in. Needless to say, Johnny and I spent an hour in there. I've added a bunch of pictures....just enjoy. I loved all of them, even the foul mouthed one. I know, I'm sorry.
The shop is called Sockfish Trading Company. What a fun store that is all about socks...and other fun items. I love dark humor and I love obnoxious quotes and comments. I love that I can wear what I am feeling today and it's hidden under my jeans.
Another cool thing is that sometimes the really obnoxious comment is stated at the bottom of the sock that is tucked away in your boots or favorite shoes. So you know it's there.
They have a section of pet friendly socks for the dog and cat lovers in your lives.
Not to mention your favorite cocktail and coffee drinkers out there. There is something for everyone.
What a great gift to add this holiday season. Especially for men. In the corporate world they are restricted to suits and ties. They can get a little wild with a pair of brightly colored socks. I love to see a wild pair of socks peep out from a gentleman's suit. Shows their fun & crazy side.
Walls and walls of socks even for a wedding party.
Another plus...these are very well made. They are soft and comfortable. They have all styles from knee socks to crew socks and the red style as well.
It was just a fun place to shop and enjoy all the fun items they sell. They had bright colored baseball style caps, scarves and purses for women. Additional cheeky items like these gum packs with funny slogans printed. What a great place to put together a fun gift basket.
I encourage all my Phoenix area friends to check out Sockfish Trading Company in the town of Cave Creek. Johnny purchased a pair to start his collection. If you don't live in the area, that's okay...they have a wonderful website to view their beautiful and fun socks. Click on the links I've included to go right to their website.
