No, Literally, I am taking you shopping at Favorite Pastimes in Arlington Wa.
I stop in every week, even if I am not buying (or not intending to anyways).
It is owned by my friend Marian, and she or her daughter (my new best helper) are there every day.
We went to high school together, I think she looks younger!
Anyways, Marian bought the store last year, and has added her own touch to it.
I guess my photography skills are a little lacking.
One of the things I LOVE about Marians store is that she has so many items from local artists.
This is called a fret piece. The artist carves it by hand, no lasers, and he frets over it until he feels it is finished.
The Treadle tables and refurbished lamps are built by her husband.
Now, two of my favorite artists also have items here.
Oh, and I need to hurry up and do my kitchen, cuz next time I have the few extra dollars, These really want to come home with me...
It says, "made with Love"!
So, When are you coming to Arlington Wa?
I will take you into my favorite store!
