2013 Favs- Here and About- Decatur, Indiana

A trip home this year in late summer gave me the time
 to check out a couple of places nearby the growing up place.
So with sisters in tow-- Off  to Decatur, Indiana.
 I had found a cute place on the internet and wanted to see what was there at-
Tattered Treasures- 222 N. Decatur Street- Decatur, Indiana. 46733
Tattered Treasures- blog

I should have given them a call (260-301-9100)
 to see the days they were open.

So it was a MONDAY----
So we got there and it was CLOSED.
Just looking in the window that day…
Another time.
Found these photos on the internet.

So if you can't go to the Vintage store you want to- then Two Brothers it is.

Time for a breaded tenderloin sandwich with pickles.
WHY can't they serve these in Virginia?

So then we were walking around
 and a group of three women had a cute bag and tissue-
Where did you get that?
217 1st Street Decatur, Indiana 46733
We made a beeline.
WOW! they were full gear into fall.
(Check out their FB page to get a peek at Christmas at the Grainery)

Interesting displays
Some more unusual gift items

this mug had to come home with me----ah---   Possibilities

It is a greenhouse and garden center.
Got to meet owner- Marge Bleeke Franz
 and her son-perhaps the tech guy
we chatted about Pinterest-
just saw they are up and pinning-
The Grainery Co- Pinterest

Worth the drive to Decatur.
Oh and because shopping is such hard work-
stopped in at the Old 27 for ice cream.

Decatur is full of amazing street side sculptures.

And of course the long time family favorite in Decatur is Yvonne Marie's

We have been shopping there since they opened- maybe 20 years ago?
Hauled a lot of things back to Virginia from this antique mall.
Friendly people and helpers there always.
Another generation at the helm.

All in all a great day in Decatur.
Worth the trip.
Easy parking- (a big deal since I am from the DC area)
Home Town Style and Home Town Heart.
