Lynnville revisited

During the holidays, Prince wanted to go back to Lynnville to visit Colonel Littleton's leather shops and have another great hamburger at the soda shop. Puppy went with us so it was like a family day off the Hill. We parked the car and went over to the leather shop and a big sign on the door said closed Monday. Prince had checked out their website and no mention of closing Monday. Being rather disappointed, I said let go over to the train museum and read all the material that I missed (see posts dated August 24 and 29 of 2014) because it was too hot to do so before. Another disappointment the museum was closed. 
Puppy spied a gun shop so we thought we would try again. We had to cross the railroad tracks and the street but it was open. In the back of the shop were purses and other hunting gear and on the side of the shop was a stitching shop. The lady said she made the bookmarks and Christmas ornaments on her sewing machine and she tried to do an item out of different yarn to show how it would work up. She indicated the scarf was not an easy one to do and I knew with her experience and she considered it hard, well it would be hard for me to do. The best news was all items were 40 per cent off. The little shop was adorable and most items were locally made which I am a sucker for . I check most everything now to see if it is 'made in USA" The purse was also 40 per cent off and it has a large inside with 3 separate compartment and on the back is a zip compartment  for Lady Smith. When you move the purse, it sounds like a horse has entered the building. 
Afterwards, we enjoyed a great hamburger at the soda shop. We also bought a sack of fried pies to bring home to the family. Next time we will get all Peach and Cherry. Yum. 
The Kitty Justice is we will have to go back when the sidewalk has not been rolled up.

A true case of taking lemons and making lemonade:) Glad you still had a good time even if your plan was changed.

Thanks and we usually do. Peace

I, too, spend so much time reading labels and tags to see if the goods are "Made in Australia". These day they're getting more difficult to find. I was looking at a can of asparagus the other day....from Brazil!

It seems like you had a most pleasant outing even if your original intentions weren't fulfilled. :)

It was a wonderful family day spent together. I am getting worse about checking labels and I will pay more for something made in America than in China, etc. Peace
