This is the last post about my trip to Minnesota. Yup, no more teasing you with places you might not ever get to, although reading blogs is usually where I find ideas about where to go! Here are a couple more recommendations if you should ever find yourself stranded in the Minneapolis area and looking for places to spend your money!
The French Flea in Anoka. An occasional sale. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time! Another cute shop just down the street is Nic Nac Paddywac's. Both stores have very, VERY amazing stuff! There were lots of antique stores in Hopkins, MN and we got in on their Raspberry Festival. Never did see a raspberry or anything pertaining to a raspberry! There also is a very wonderful place in New Ulm that is worth stopping at.
This place is somewhere around Minneapolis. The Garmin lady was having a difficult time telling us where it was, or even where we were. I swear we circled the whole city twice before we found it! Now, my daughter is usually mild mannered EXCEPT when she gets behind the wheel! For a small town girl, she knows how to drive in the big city and pushes and shoves to get in the right lane just like everyone else. I still have cramps in my fingers from gripping the seat! And my ears! Never heard such words coming from my baby!
Anywho, it was well worth frustrating the Garman lady. Many artists bring their creations here to sell! Such talent to be found! Look how they decorated their walls! Book covers from alot of destroyed books. (I still have a hard time ripping apart a book. I mean, it's a BOOK, meant to be read and cherished! I LOVE books. I will probably never get a kindle cuz I love to turn the pages.)
Now, on to the good stuff . . . a few of my treasures! Peruse at your leisure and be envious, be very, very envious! Just kidding!
Okay, enough scales for Connie! This is the last one I will bring home! (Who am I kidding!)
Okay, that's it! (I'm hearing yeahs! and finallys! from the bloggy crowd!) At least until Minnesota tempts me again in September for Junk Bonanza.
The next post (whenever that will be but I promise you soon, very soon) will be a little giveaway to celebrate my recent milestones and blessings! 100 posts! My little Lainey! 150 followers (okay, I don't have that one yet but I set my goals high!)! So sit by your computers my friends and when the next post shows up on your google reader, RUN to your keyboard to send me a comment! Well, you really don't have to run (I'm a sloth and hate all forms of anything that even hints of exercise) but I do hope and wish you visit again - even without a giveaway!
Good week-end wishes to you all . . .
