We stopped at the Calico Cat first, where the ladies were just as helpful as ever! Susan and I both found some cool things. We paused to have lunch across the way, and then went back and finished the job. I really don't know why every woman in Dallas doesn't shop there. It's just that good.
Next on the agenda was walking around and checking out some of the antique/junk stores in town. The wind was blowing down the main street, and I half expected John Wayne to come sauntering out of one of the doors. Instead, I captured Susan as she walked into junk heaven, followed by me in a mirror.
Here are some of our spectacular "finds" for the day, starting with this lilac-colored lamp.
Is anyone missing some eight-track tapes? Do my younger readers even know what they are??
I liked this two-month calendar that was tacked up on a door, because it showed me that my very first Christmas was on a Saturday!
No one ever told me that you could use coffee cans to patch wood floors!
Look at the old linoleum on the floor of this room. It was upstairs in a building where I felt sure I'd fall through the floor at any given moment...or else find a giant mouse, and jump down on my own!
So that was our day. Just enough driving, shopping and looking around! Thanks, Susan! Next time, we're on to Jefferson!
