I love small towns and big old houses. Saturday Mr. Creations and I went to a "new to us" festival. It was the Annie Oakley Festival. We arrived early so we decided to walk up and down some of the streets. Lovely old lady!
People had their chairs out waiting for the parade to start. This is a side street. Main street was already lined with chairs.
Do you see the Kitchen Aid sign? We still had time before the parade started so we stopped in to have a look. The store was packed. We quickly discovered why. This is the home of Kitchen Aid (I already knew this) and they were having a HUGE sale (I did not know this). Well...I've always wanted a Kitchen Aid mixer. Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas to me.
After the parade, lunch, and a visit to the fairgrounds we stopped in some antique shops here and there. Taking the road less traveled on our way home we stopped in a tiny farming community with a tiny downtown. We parked and walked the main street. They still have their original Ben Franklin.
Further on down the street we stopped into a shop boasting not of antiques but of "nostalgia." Part antiques and mostly second hand stuff. The place was packed with stuff. Well I found something I've been wanting. Mr. Creations loaded it in the car and we headed for home.
It certainly is Ideal! The patina on the outside is amazing.
I like old things but I also love modern conveniences. This is for fun.
It's a ringer washer tub! Do you ever take the road less traveled?
