This person had re-purposed old glass pieces to make garden art. I loved it and we bought a bird feeder from them.
I bought some canned homemade salsa and blackberry jam. I also bought the handmade carved wooden cross. Then I went to the bake sale table and bought us some large cookies for snacking later.
Then it was on towards the mountains. When we go that way, we always visit the Hospice Barn Thrift Store in Landrum.
Next stop was an apple stand in Saluda, NC. It's apple season and we had to stop. I bought mulled cider, Gala apples, pickled okra. We bought Dad a bushel of apples for him to make apple butter.
We took the scenic route up SC Hwy 176 to Hendersonville. We stopped at the Council On Aging Thrift Store. It's a nice store but I didn't find anything so we decided it was lunch time. We like to eat lunch at Hannah Flannagan's Pub and Eatery downtown. Parking is a little dicey. There is a parking lot you can pay to park out a block behind the restaurant. The bad thing is it's an uphill climb from parking lot to Main St. But we are all healthy enough to make it and we had a great lunch. I love to get their corned beef and cabbage plate. Mother got the chicken pot pie, Dad got the Irish Pot Roast. We were well satisfied. Then we meandered and shopped downtown. There are thrift stores, consignment shops, antique shops, Mast General Store, jewelry and gift stores.
For our 39th wedding anniversary tomorrow, Stan bought me a silver and turquoise ring from a gem and jewelry shop. I put it on with my amethyst ring right then and there.
We ended our great day with Chocolate Lattes from the Black Bear Coffee Shop and headed home. It was a wonderful day together.
