Though we are snarkily called “Zonies,” many of us desert dwellers flock to Coronado Island every year, between Memorial Day and Labor Day, to escape our 100-plus temps. My family has been coming here for almost 20 years, and honestly, it doesn’t feel like summer unless we have paid this magical island a visit. This year, there is a new little boutique that’s opened on Orange Avenue– Coronado Vintage. And it’s a must-visit. Not only do the owner and I share a mutual love of Fixer + Upper, but the store is a treasure trove of Coronado history. You can buy everything from grab bags of vintage collars to beach jewelry, to old postage stamps to clips that say “Queen.” And this very awesome hat (above) that I feel like a boss in. While there’s not a website, there is a Facebook page!
