Part Two of the out and about day
with daughter Sara brought us to Culpeper, VA.
Just love Virginia downtown areas that look like
they are well taken care of and loved.
The hanging flower baskets are lush and full.
Even the transit system look like a pull out of a time hat
with buses that look like trolley cars.
Doesn't appear that anything is hopping here
at the restaurant that use to fill the hardware store.
White paint on brick that told life of another story.
for cards right when you walk in the door.
I got so excited when I stepped inside
I forgot to take a photo of the wall-mounted Airstream camper.
This little shop in downtown Culpeper- has an uptown feeling.
They buy and sell American made goods.
At the check out is an old seed container from a hardware store.
Those bins pull out for deep storage.
Filled with old-time games and toys for children.
Found a couple things here for my next door neighbor's children.
And behind the counter--- this amazing "barn door".
Made by a local craftsman.
And a bit of iconic nostalgia.
And a bit of pinball wizard.

See their website to find out more
about this wonderful little shop.
As I checked out I had to get some info
about the items in the store-
Many of the items
were hauled out of
Squash a Penny Junction in Doswell, VA.
