George and I found this little gem of a produce, gift shop, grocery store, community store, happy shop of a place. Then we lost it during the pandemic period. We thought it had closed. However, I kept seeing Instagram posts and I told George “no, they can’t be closed”. I messaged them and they simply moved closer to the square. So we have had it on our list to go back. It’s just a fun little place. Back when we first found them, we bought some potatoes that were in between sweet and white potatoes. I think they were Japanese or from Thailand or some far away place, but my WORD they were so good. And they had homemade ravioli that was really good. These two things alone had us going back. They did not have either – well they had mushroom ravioli and that is not a flavor I’d buy. George would, lol. But we left with a few items yesterday – mainly meat and cobblers.
We also went next-door to the Public Square Marketplace. More on that in a few.
It’s a cute little eclectic shop with a hippie like vibe! I’m using that in a good sense, not in a bad way! It’s a store that gives you peace and contentment when you enter it.
So we go into the next door shop called Public Square Market Place. And the first thing asked was “would you like some Sangria?” Why yes, yes I would! And we bought a little Sangria jar – great suggestive selling. It was soooo good. Not too sweet. You mix wine with it, let it sit in the fridge for three days, then when ready to serve add yet another bottle to it. It served really cold and had ice in the main container. WE loved it.
Well, we may have come home with Harry! 😉 Little River Roo needs him. Each little animal hanging has a story.
The next store we went to was Em + Kate’s in Lebanon, TN. We saw this store when it was being put together last time we shopped on the square. And it was not ready yet. It’s a gift shop but they also have a children’s section. Loved this store as well.
Now, my daughter’s name is Emily Kaitlyn and we call her Katy, but sometimes I called her Emmy Kate. So naturally I wanted to go to this store! Loved it. They also gave us a free cupcake when we checked out. A little mini one! It was yummy!
And so it is Monday again. The weekend was fabulous with our trip out on Saturday. And was able to get the critical things done yesterday and we went out with Kevin and Susan. I’m out of time and need to get ready for work. I’ll be back on Wednesday to share more of our weekend and pics. It’s kinda nice to have pics again to share!
Will be a busy focus this week to get a few things done in the evenings that I didn’t get done on the weekend. Have a family birthday card to send off – have to go buy a gift card, need to decide when to get a pedicure – that’s easy – then call and make an appointment. Need to order a bridal shower gift, need to order some River pics, need to check and see what the results were to my bone density test. Have not even looked yet. Need to cancel AARP. I’m not reading the magazines and not using the services. I’m also cooking a couple of times soon and need to make sure I have what I need to help out in the kitchen.
I worked on the video some – quite a bit actually – editing it. Because this makes me really happy and feeling like I’m getting something done in my life. 😉
So back on Wednesday for an update and a few more pics. Ya’ll have a great week ahead. I’m going for more coffee!
Anything on your to do list this week?
