Forks or Bust: Day 29

Today we spent the entire day shopping in Forks. It was a blast but I think we're going to have to rent a trailer to get all our stuff back home.

We started with an early breakfast at Forks Coffee Shop
We ordered one of everything on their breakfast menu and
then passed them around so we could taste everything. Yum!

Forks Open Air Market
The Forks Open Aire Market is a non-profit organization made up of Forks community volunteers, local artisans, hobbyists, Twilight-inspired merchandise venders, organic farmers, photographers, jewelry artists, collectors, crafters, and more who vend their wares next to the Forks Timber Museum every Saturday from mid-May to mid-October. We spent three hours there and got soooo much stuff!

Then it was time for lunch. We went Sully's Burgers. . .

. . . home of the Bella Burger.

Chinook Pharmacy & Variety
You know it's a small town when they identify their store as the one "at the stoplight."
Chinook's features a Twilight Lane in their store with a huge variety of T-Shirts, candles, books, postcards, book marks, sweat shirts, souvenirs, and jewelry.

Native to Twilight

Located on Main Street, this shop carries items related to Twilight, Native American Culture, Forks and La Push. They have themed clothing, handmade and local items. Every craft is authentic—including hand-carved cedar canoe paddles by McCarty (Makah Tribe), bent wood cedar boxes by master carver Smith (Quileute and Makah), traditional grass and cedar baskets by Morganroth (Quileute), woven/beaded barettes by Leitka (Hoh River Tribe), native screenprint designs by Greene (Makah Tribe), and spectacular cedar masks by Taylor (Tulalip) and Cox (Makah Tribe).

Shopping really works up the appetite. We went to The Lodge for dinner.
It's connected to a family-friendly Twilight Lounge.
We stayed in the lounge until the swelling in our ankles went down.

Dazzled by Twilight
Last stop for the day—the flagship store for Dazzled By Twilight.
This shop has amazing fan-gear. Maybe I should try to sell my perfume here...?

Hm. Where would I like to visit? The Cullen's house. I really want to see the rest of it, since they only let us peek in the entry when we were there the other day.
