Lately there has been way too much drama, caused by other people, in our lives. As some of you read on Facebook last night, Kathy and I decided to have a day for ourselves, some "us time" if you may. We decided to head south. To Amish country. But first, a stop for breakfast. Kathy loves the cinnamon raisin french toast served in the Main Street Cafe, in Buehler's supermarket. I had a southern sausage skillet. The main breakfast rush was over by the time we got there, so we had a nice quiet meal. Beautiful weather, and we had a view of the school kids at recess. Good to see them out getting some fresh air.
After we finished our fine dining, it's off to Kidron, We were going to stop first at the outdoor flea market, but we couldn't find a parking space, so we hit the road again.
Next stop was Country Salvage Ltd., formerly known as Bent and Dent. Our last stop there was over two years ago and then we got some great deals. I suspect since then, because of the recession, they got quite a bit more popular and the prices have gone up. Still cheaper than the Evil Big Box Store(tm), but not worth a trip there by itself.
Once we hit the road again, we headed towards the Ashery Country Store. Since this was more for rest and relaxation than anything else, we got a few bulk items, including some things to snack on, and some drinks. We then headed back towards downtown Kidron.
We were able to find a parking space this time and walked around the flea market, being careful not to step in the horse exhaust. Cliff Note:I should have gone into the general store and bought some Shinola, just so I could let Kathy know that I knew the difference. Being early in the year, I noticed that many folks were proud of what they sold. I may come back later when their prices reflect less pride in their wares. We got our exercise in, bought a few items then it was back on the road, this time for the trip home.
