Weekend Happenings

Mom and I had plans of just running to a couple places then going to the house to work.  Well that didn't happen.  We ended up taking our time at some new shops we discovered and never made it to the house...oops!

First stop was Merchants on Main 

We found several cute booths inside

Next stop the junk yard.  We had never stopped at this junk yard before and I don't know how that was possible...lots of good stuff.  We did not buy anything but I want to take Rich back because I know he could find a few things for his man room among all the piles.

After our visit to the junk yard we went to Warehouse Row which used to be a run of the mill outlet mall.  The whole space has recently been renovated and is now home to some wonderful stores.  The revitalization is still very much in progress and there are several empty spaces that need to be filled.  If only I had gobs of money to throw around I would open a store there in a heart beat :)

Homespun is one of the new stores at Warehouse Row.  They have handmade arts and crafts scattered throughout the space but most of the store is taken up by a long table and chairs where people can come and create!  They also teach classes on how to make certain crafts and you can also rent out the space and have a crafting party! Such a cute idea!

This is a picture of the food court!  They have taken a huge branch and hung is from the ceiling, used old metal laundry baskets as lampshades, and they have stamped what looks like drafting stools with letters and used them all around three  very large tables.  This makes me want to work downtown so I can go eat lunch here! 

The main reason I wanted to come to Warehouse Row was to go in Revival.  I wanted everything in this store!  I loved all the neutrals with pops of color.  Not only was the store lovely, the ladies that work there were so nice!

Before heading home we stopped at Linda's, a local produce stand and thank goodness I got married last year because the pumpkin selection was low.  Not a white or green pumpkin in sight!  I am guessing that all of the dry/hot weather we had this summer hurt the pumpkin crop?

In the mood for a chicken spinach quiche, I whipped one up.  Don't let this fool you...Rich does most of the cooking around here :)

I picked what will be my last bouquet of Zinnias.  I hope they do as well at the new house as they have done here this year. 

Hope you have had a lovely weekend!
