Recently I went on the best kind of shopping trip.  I went to the little downtown neighborhood near where I live. It was awesome!!! Yes, so awesome it deserves all 3 exclamation points.  It may have only been 1 short block, but it was filled with lovely little artist studios, art galleries, cute gift shops, antique stores and even a traditional 5 and dime. Eeek! I loooved it! 

There were old brick walls and cute signs. 

I shopped away my Saturday afternoon and loved every single minute.  My wallet, on the other hand, did not. I managed to check another item off my 25 by 25 list.  Let’s just agree it wasn’t #6  – live more frugally.

I’ll show you what was in the box next time!
