I usually set aside part of Saturday to make the trek to pick up my milk (from my Amish friend. Are you jealous that you don’t have an Amish friend?) for the week. Often times I’ll change the route we drive in order to see something different or, more importantly, to stop at a junk/antique/thrift shop along the way. Today I found the mother of all junk shops. Dirty, unorganized, and CHEAP! My favorite.
Madeline went along today with the promise of a pit stop for coffee in Victoria VA and the possibility of vintage records just waiting to be discovered. We checked out an antique mall in Victoria but had no luck. A few miles later we stopped in Keysville VA. This is where we found it: The Tail-Waggers Thrift Store. I used much self-restraint and only came out with 3 items. Two cute, little ice cream dishes and this cookbook:
I bought this brand-spanking new cookbook for $2.50! Look at the original price:
Now interestingly, I own an original, first edition of this same book. A present from my Mom not long after I was married.
I’m glad to retire my original version from everyday use. It will now just serve as an adorable decoration in the kitchen.
We had a nice time and brought home a few treasures–and some fresh milk. A day well spent.
