The City Chicks

The life and times of a couple of urban farmgirls!

What a great start to the week… May 20, 2010

Sunday was an absolutely gorgeous day outside so I decided that Jade and I should take a drive down to see our favorite little shop owner Connie.  Her store Prairie Piecegoods always has something new and exciting every time we go in.  Sunday was no exception.  While going through a box she had yet to unpack I came across a fabulous tan vintage hand-tooled leather purse.  It truly was love at first sight.  I had already acquired a darling little black one for my vintage purse collection a few months back.  Of course, it seems that nothing I ever want to purchase is tagged at Connie’s store; so I was holding my breath waiting  for a hefty price when I bravely asked how much she would want for it.  Brace yourself… I got the little beauty for a mere $10! 

Now if I can just get her hubby, Doug,  to part with the box of old slides that has been sitting there for months collecting dust.  He says that he is waiting for his siblings to go through them first since they belonged to their parents and grandparents.  Maybe I’ll wear him out one of these days.  I am hopeful those Kodachrome slides will be all mine!
