Until scientists safely chart the interior of a black hole, time-travel hopefuls must content themselves by churning their own butter or starting their own crusade. Experience a less violent trip to the past with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of vintage-inspired goods and knickknacks at Tiddle E. Winks Vintage 5 & Dime, located just off the historic plaza in downtown Sonoma.
A favorite of locals and tourists alike, Tiddle E. Winks grants entrance into the time-sealed toy-shopping past and rekindles memories for adults and immortal highlanders alike. Miss Winks' eponymous shop houses aisle upon aisle of antique-inspired do-dads, from jumping beans and flavored milk straws, to jaw harps and handheld rodeo pinball games. Munch on some authentic teaberry gum before prepping for a high-noon potato-gun duel or dab reminiscent tears away with a Sonoma County–themed towel as you reorganize your Beverly Hillbillies trading cards. As a nod to its community esteem, Sonoma's mayor proclaimed September 1 be Tiddle E. Winks Day, during which citizens must address each other as "honey bear" and all town hamburgers cost a prohibitively shiny nickel.
