Stock Piled!

IT's here! We've been waiting, biting our nails, joyously terrified for it... the 4th of July! It is HERE!

The market has a little bit more room than we thought, look what we've been able to stuff in here for all those hours of fun in the sand.

2011 Muscle 'N Chrome

Wow! Even with a little bit of drizzly mist we still had a great turnout for the annual Muscle 'N Chrome classic car show. The sound of rumbling engines and the smell of racing fuel and exhaust was a fun addition to this dreary Saturday. My favorite car is the creamy lime green Chevy truck in the video... I might use that as inspiration when painting my bedroom! Who knew a car show could lead to painting your house...?!

String of stunning sunsets in Seaside

Can you say it five times fast; "string of stunning sunsets in Seaside, string of stunning sunsets in Seaside, string of stunning sunsets in Seaside, string of stunning sunsets in Seaside, string of stunning sunsets in Seaside!"

That's kinda hard, but not as hard as it is to capture a solid display of beautiful cloudless sunsets days in a row. Even the evening haze hasn't put a damper on the orange ball of fire quickly lowers into the blue ocean. Try as I might, the pictures don't do the beauty justice. Maybe you'll just have to plan a summer trip to the Coast to see for yourself...

What type of traveler are you?

At The Turnaround Market we get many requests; some ranging from the usual and others tipping the scales of weird.

We hope to accommodate each and every kind of traveler. But that raises the questions of what it is that many people need or would like to have on vacation. Sometimes you just can't pack everything you'll need, and often times it's easy to forget the minor details while in preparation frenzy.

What do you think you would need while on a summer vacation at the Oregon Coast?

Many people ask about Clorox Wipes for disinfecting their hotel rooms -- some have even mentioned needing to wipe down the showers before use. Is this crazy or the best idea ever?! You decide...

Tried and true!

Shhhh... don't tell the Pepsi distributor about this post! We love Sean, he's our favorite friend around town, but the truth is... we are the only Coca Cola distributor this side of Broadway - and we know our customers love us for it. Thanks for the recent article explaining the shifts over the last decade to reflect what people want in a soft drink.

Take a look at the recent publication about how the times have changed in the world of pop. Don't worry, we carry Pepsi, too, but we are proud of of Coca Cola fountain machine!

(Only $1.00 for a 44 oz fountain drink, what?! That's a steal!)

What is your favorite soft drink? And the everlasting debate: can or bottle?

Woot, woot! The whales have arrived!

How exciting is this?! The whales along the Oregon Coast have made their presence known. Sightings began in Depoe Bay on April 15th and can often times be seen for three to four weeks, sometimes even as late as June!

Only a two-and-a-half hour drive South on Highway 101, you can visit Seaside and Depoe Bay in one trip!

It's in the details!

On beautifully radiant days I get one question more than others: "Where do we find whole sand dollars?"

In this wisely written and generously informative article read a little bit more about Seaside and the surrounds to find the answer to the secret...
