while jon was at work today, i was bored. bored bored bored. so i got dressed and decided to break in my new booties with a walk into town. i love visiting one particular shop, called Market Side Mercantile. it's owned by a mother daughter team and offers all kinds of unique gifts and home decor. think of it as almost a craft thrift store. local artists bring in work, as well as things people just don't have a use for anymore and the shop revamps them into pieces of art! (like these canada dry soda can ornaments!) i love going there year round, and today i walked out with mini chalkboard gift tags, 4 yards of twine and a metal tray that i plan on using for jewelry storage!
