Whereas most shopping and hang out destinations tend to be super busy on the weekends, I can usually count on one area of Oklahoma City to be a little less so during that time. Not that it is a dead zone, but by “less busy,” I mean I can actually find a parking spot pretty much in front of where I intend on going.
Early Sunday afternoon, Coffee Slingers was my destination. This is my favorite coffee spot in Oklahoma City. There are plenty of Starbucks locations to go around, but this place is truly a gem. I talked about Coffee Slingers before in this post, and I still feel like bragging.
There is nothing super fancy about it. You’re not going to find cozy, cushy chairs or warm “please stay for hours and hours” colors all around. But honestly, I love the more open environment it presents, I love seeing all the machinery that goes into roasting their own coffee beans, and I swear you will not find a better latte in town.
I also picked up some locally made granola by Big Sky Bread Company to mix in with some plain yogurt. The results were delicious.
While finishing up my latte, I thought to myself “hey, I should go explore a bit.”
And that is exactly what I did. I walked a couple blocks and happened upon this interesting set up…
Normally I love the opportunity to explore on my own, as it gives me a chance to really take my time and form my own thoughts without the influence of anyone else. But there’s a problem when there is a seesaw and I have no one to ride it with. Sad face.
This quirky front was for Plenty Mercantile. I really cannot accurately describe just how awesome this place is. It is a hodge podge of home decor and other odds & ends. In their words, they represent the artful home, soulful living, and meaningful giving. Yes, that perfectly describes it. I took my time through all of it.
The last two pictures reminded me of a special cabin getaway I sometimes escape to, and how I envision bringing that feeling home.
The employees were incredibly friendly and just really added to the warmth of it all. I could have easily spent all of the day’s business hours exploring every little item they had, while simultaneously having to control the urge to buy everything.
I did wind up buying a couple of things; my favorite being this Paddywax candle in Gardenia & Tuberose.
I am totally in love with this store, and it has to be my favorite OKC shopping find. I can’t wait to go back.
I headed home after my short excursion and just spent the rest of the day being laid back. The up and down weather we’ve been having has brought on a cold, so there have been a lot of cuppas being enjoyed in this home.
