Tour de Truckee - Shop local!

I had some friends in town recently that were absolutely charmed by downtown Truckee. They thought I must spend so much time and money there because it is just so darn cute. The architecture is kind of western/old style quirky, there is a train that runs right through town, there are funny dark bars and cute boutique shops, what more could you want?

I am embarrassed to say that I really spend very little (non dining) time in downtown Truckee. I should, I know. I technically live in Truckee. But the reality is, I just don't have a ton of spare time. Except for when my shop-happy sisters and mom come into town, we definitely peruse the main drag. Shop local, they say. So, I am going to commit to buying at least 5 of my next 10 purchases on the main street of Truckee. I will let you know what goodies I find and any tidbits of helpful info to share.

I saw this great article recently and am going to consider some of the authors advice as I embark on this self-imposed shopping challenge. Check out the link below:
