I don't go in there because my money just falls out of my pocket and I walk out of the store elated, clutching things like dishcloths, ceramic egg crates and dreaming about dinner plates.
There are very few places that make me feel materialistic. This lovely-smelling, intoxicating store, is one of them.
The last time I was in there, I walked out with Farm Anatomy, the Curious Parts & Pieces of Country Life by, Julia Rothman.
Julia is an artist, who married a guy who grew up on a farm. A city girl, she learned about the farm through creating this book.
Instead of writing about it, I'll put some of her art below.
This book is informative and just plain awesome.
