Shopping in Bastrop, Texas

The girls had some fun a few weeks back and enjoyed some shopping in historic Bastrop, Texas. We took the kids along with us. They had fun tagging along and I managed to snap a few pictures along the way!

Suzanne's friend Jenny had arranged for a shop owner to come open his doors for us to take a look around. He has this huge place downtown filled with all kinds of wonderful! He only opens up occasionally, and by appointment. We had so much fun digging around. I scored the wooden suitcase while we were there! I'm sure you'll be seeing it in more pictures - it's the perfect prop!
We found old signs, furniture, and the kids found lots of smalls to play with. I think Suzanne ended up with this piece. And a few other things that wouldn't fit in the vehicle. It required an extra trip back!
  Afterwards, the kids used their profits from the summer lemonade stand to treat themselves to ice cream at the local drug store.

 This was quite a nostalgic little trip. We walked into town from Jenny's and enjoyed looking at all the beautifully restored historic homes along the way. It is like taking a step back in time.

This was such a sweet garden, and I loved the heart on the barn!

Bastrop has a quaint town center with lots of restaurants and little shops. It made the Rusted Gingham shopping list! Have you ever shopped Bastrop? Do you have a favorite place we should know about?
Jenny's place is beautiful, and I always love to see the flags flying in front when we pull up. 

So our summer weekends are winding down, and our Barn Sale weekends are upon us. We only have TEN more weekends until the Barn Sale! It's coming quickly. I can't wait to feel the cool breezes we usually have that time of year. Hard to imagine a cool breeze right now, but it's coming. Ten weekends. Barn Sale. Are you ready?
