Gold Country Vintage Road: A scenic loop designed with vintage shoppers in mind

GOLD COUNTRY VINTAGE ROAD is a scenic loop designed with vintage shoppers in mind.

Starting in Auburn, it winds its way through Gold Country, connecting a remarkable collection of shops, featuring up-cycled furniture, quirky accessories, vintage clothing, chalk style paint, hand-crafted jewelry and more—all at a fraction of what you’d pay in the “big city.”

A “Vintage Adventure” is planned October 9 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., which includes a free drawing for gift baskets worth $800, special promotions at each shop and refreshments. Check out the descriptions to customize your own Vintage Road Tour.
