Filled with architecturally interesting old buildings, this historical boom town’s economy is now fueled by myriad antiques shops.  So far, there are way more antiques shops in town than wine-tasting rooms. 

A. Flowers  Main St., (209) 352-5023.  Located within a charming repurposed vintage cottage, this shop purveys one-of-a-kind handmade items mixed with a curated selection of antique goodies, making for a delightful browse.  I left with two sweet unused washcloths enhanced with vintage lace medallions.
