Tuesdays Adventure

Tuesday dawned bright and sunny.   Our schedule was to revisit Lenoir because of the closed stores on Monday.   We went to a knitting store Chix With Stix  Emily bought some yarn and I bought some so Emily can make me a hat.   Hats and scarves generally take one skein each.   It need not be done till it is cold.   We perused also books stores and some antique stores and a few galleries.   

Then lunch at a delicious, an inexpensive Mexican Restaurant and then on to meet Jane, a friend and coworker of Sarah’s.  We went for a short drive and found quite a interesting place.   The shop it self was in a large metal building.   This was a no frills place but inside it was filled to the brims with antiques stored as collections.   We spent a long time there, Jane was looking for old metallic tins that she used in making jewelry.

She sells her jewelry at Etsy and a boutique in Richmond.    Jane said right now it is fun and she doesn’t want it to become work.

Things for sale.

Emily found pillows, I bought candle sticks, and Jane found more tins.   I

think someone found something to buy.

Our last stop of the day was for ice cream at Udderly delicious.  It was the best I have tasted in quite awhile.

After the ice cream it was enough for the day.


  1. Sounds like a fun day! I especially like the Singer... looks exactly like the one my grandmother had. We still have it. I think it's been hard trying to find one of the belts for it.

    Cheers, Veronica
