I spent the afternoon recently on Fourth Street in old downtown Loveland, CO. It's just minutes away, and I can't believe this was my first trip. It's filled with all the charm of a quaint old town, but with new funky shops and restaurants. The show stopper was of course, Merchant Voyage. I nearly squealed with delight as soon as I set foot inside. A mixture of old and new things, nests, eggs, vintage flash cards, it is not to be missed! I left with two wire nests filled with faux bird eggs. Stopped in for lunch at Cipoletti's Italian Restaurant, and it was like stepping back in time. Through the revolving doors, past the wood bar, jazz, great food, and I was back in another time.
