Shopping local really does pay. I purchased a new book at InkFish Books and received a free ARC!
This weekend, a nearby town had their special walkabout day for small business. There is a great music store called In Your Ear. They had a great sale on records this weekend and boy did I score some good ones. I did quite a bit of digging underneath the best seller cubes, and found these closer to the floor. Guess no one but me is looking for these!
My husband has had Mystic Pizza on his mind for sometime now. We managed to find a frozen version at the local market, but it did not kill the desire. We pretty much based this day of staycation around the pizza shop. We ordered ahead for curbside then took it to a Rhode Island library’s park to enjoy it.
We hit up THREE libraries in one day, which lead to buckling in the massive amounts of checkouts we accumulated. Lots of learning ahead. Disclaimer – some of the items are for my parents too!
We also stopped at the Fantastic Umbrella Factory, antique stores and of course, a book store!
We ended the day with Halloween movies and apple nachos!
This site is now high-end condominiums. I remember thinking it was so awesome they planned to keep the facade of the old factory. It was weird to see it held up like this! I wish I had taken more photographs from different angles.
Here’s an older post by me that I like! I wish I had some of this inspiration right now!
I think I found my new muse. My old muse was the rundown factory on the corner of Franklin and Buttonwood Streets in Bristol, RI. She was knocked down a while back to make way for a local business. Oh how many times I wished I were a no-good, very bad person and had the guts to trespass, just to photograph the inside. However, it might kill the mystery of it all!
