The Washington Store That’s In The Middle Of Nowhere But So Worth The Journey

Part of the fun of exploring Washington is discovering the gems that lie hidden in the small rural communities or along the backroads. And while you may or may not have heard of the town of Thorp, you’ve almost certainly seen its crowning glory if you’ve taken I-90 through Kittitas County. The next time you see Thorp Fruit & Antique Mall from the road, do yourself a favor and stop to check it out.
