Around town: St. Patricks thriftstore

20 Sep

I recently went to St. Patricks on Franklin. St. Patricks is a little rustic looking but great for digging and finding a little piece of history that is sweet to your heart.

I now have a Charley the great fund going on in a rather large salt shaker I picked up at an estate sale. I figure it will take me about 5 years to save up and purchase. But if you’ve gots the cream get that sugar:


But if you would like something where you might not have to chop of your arm and eat that for a week:

It’s gorgeous and priced at a measly ten bucks.

Heres my last bit for those of you bored with words:
