Diablo Clubhouse

Green drawstring dress Spence Petite, love this long maxi version  - Red flats Stradivarius, similar under 20.00 USD here
Red tote bag Victorinox, this three piece is a steal for under 5.00 USD - Red, green bee headband similar from Gucci  here

I was driving out to a yard sale the other day and got lost. The sale was nowhere to be found. There were no signs and I was already heading back home when I saw this building, the forgotten Diablo Clubhouse. From what I've read it goes back to at least the 1940's and it housed a cafeteria, store, theatre, library, bowling alley, beauty salon, ball room, tailor and seamstress shop, shoe shop all at the same time ! If I had been around then, very it's very likely I would have been a recurring visitor. Nowadays, it's empty. 
El otro día mientras manejaba a una venta de patio me perdí. No encontraba el sitio. No habían letreros y ya iba de vuelta a la casa cuando vi este edificio, el olvidado Clubhouse de Diablo. Según leí data de al menos los años 40 y albergaba una cafetería, una tienda, teatro, librería, salon de belleza, bolos, sala de fiestas, un taller de modistería y tienda de calzados, todo a la vez ! Si hubiese estado yo por esta época de seguro hubiese sido visitante frecuente. Hoy en día está vacío.

Oh it's a shame that you didn't find the sale, but what a lovely pieces of history to take a photo in front of! It does sound like it was a great place in its heyday. I like the red and green in your outfit too, perfectly Christmassy! :)
