We spent last weekend in San Diego. Had originally planned to go to the Cincinnati modern show but just couldn't quite bring ourselves to fly north in the middle of winter. So we headed to sunny southern California instead. It turned out there are quite a few midcentury modern shops in the area, so we got our midcentury fix. For anyone else planning a trip there, I just thought I'd list them for you.
All of the following deal in original vintage furniture-
Along Park Blvd.-
The Atomic Bazaar
3816 Park Blvd.
3795 Park Blvd.
3789 1/2 Park Blvd.
Near Little Italy and only a few blocks from where you pick up your rental car from the airport-
989 W. Kalmia St.
Boomerang for Modern
2475 Kettner Blvd.
There is also a nice little antique mall on Kettner -

And one last place, a teeny little store in a different neighborhood but with cool vintage stuff-
