Road Trip

My hubby had to do a posting at the courthouse in Batesville today (about 100 miles from us) and I decided that since I am on vacation this week I would ride along with him. I have never been there before. So we took off about mid morning and had a very pleasant drive there.

As we were pulling away from the courthouse, I looked down the street and lo and behold there was a huge sign a couple of blocks down that said "Fabric - Wholesale and Retail". So we went to investigate. Oh my was like a huge warehouse just filled with fabric. And the prices -- wow they were great! We looked and looked and found a few things that we got. But I was very good -- only spent $25. But I know where to go now.

Before we left home, we did a yellow page internet search for scrapbooking stores in the area. There were only two listed which are in Searcy. Since we go through Searcy to get to Batesville, we stopped there on our way home. The first one was a fantastic store. I got some paper that was on sale and embellishments. Ronny got into it also and found me an adorable acrylic set of stamps of owls. The next store was so so...nothing to write home about. But I did find a few embellishments that I liked and a pad of black and white paper.

Oh yeah...we stopped at a really neat shop outside of Batesville that carries carnival glass and a lot of the depression glass and Fenton glassware. We browsed and looked at all the beautiful pieces. Some gorgeous stuff...including a blue carnival glass punch bowl set priced at $2,500!

Also made a stop at a fresh produce some tasty locally grown strawberries and a few other items. We are going to have some good fresh produce with our supper in just a little bit. Had a late lunch so dinner will be late this evening.

Luck, love and laughter,

Sounds like a great day for you, I can't believe you had your hubby browsing in a scrapbook store. I can never get mine to stop at one when we are traveling. He's a good man!

Sounds wonderful. I'm with Lisa, my husband usually ditches me at the scrapbook store and heads for hardware or electronics (whatever's closer).
