We next crossed the street, went into the antique store. Looked at the walls lined with empty antique? bottles. Saw a few antique? books. Found an antique? necklace Sierra liked and purchased for 4 bucks. And left there quickly too. Moral of that store? I must be an antique because I owned some of the books that were there, and still use bottles like she sold to put my jam in :(
Off again. Two new store awaited us. One is another boutique, which was eerily similar to the first store. Oddly, it's clientele were also from the Lone Peak area- info gathered from a not so subtle conversation between shop owner and patron. A little bit pricey shop. We did get a kick out of fabric headbands being sold there. We just learned how to make the exact headbands at RS out of scraps of fabric. They were being sold there for 18 bucks. Sierra now really likes the ones we made. :)
The last store has a new sign in front which drew my attention, "Gypsy Wagon". It sounded quaint and fun. As we walked in the front door, weird vibes start attacking. There were amulets hanging, semi precious stones galore, belly dancing outfits (which I'm not sure what they have to do with anything:), and then it hits me. Wiccan. Books on the Wiccan, how to build an altar, stuff to supply your altar building experience, and basically your all around witchy needs store. I was flabbergasted! In my little tiny town that can't even get it's own WalMart, we have a Wiccan store. And it was a goose bumpy giving place. The Beatles were playing on a boom box in the corner (right under the "altar building advice" section) so that was nice. Sierra, who was brought up on Buffy was fascinated. "I thought the store on Buffy was full of made up stuff. I didn't know you could really get that stuff. Does it have real power?" So off we go on yes, it has real power, but who does the power come from? So thank you scary witch store for a teaching moment. :)
Too bad the Tattoo parlor is gone.
Did you know that PG has the newest, biggest liquor store in the state now? Interesting.
