We also spent some time at a thrift store. My mom and I both found really cute skirts (hers brand new from Anthropology, mine from a designer for Target collection), but both were too small. :( We did each find a few other things to make the trip worthwhile. They had their Halloween costumes out, and I found brand new really cheap tights so I bought a pair in six different colors. I can't wait to start wearing them with my experimental fashions.
Our last stop was at Gardner Village, which took all the rest of the day. We had lunch at Archibald's - the three of us split one sandwich so that we had room for carrot cake for dessert. :) They already had all the witches up. It was weird wandering in the 85 degree heat in the middle of all the fall decor - we felt out of place.
My favorite witch was the hula hoop champion:
We had to stop for a sample of fudge, of course. I tried the pumpkin chocolate chip and it was delicious as always! Just look at these two kids in a candy store:
The bakery had the best decoration of all, a giant cake! With pumpkins for decorations no less! I loved it.
All in all we had a really nice time together. We all found a couple of treasures to bring home so it was a very successful trip.
