~a simply lovely store~
When I was back home visiting my family I was glad to have some extra time to visit one of my favorite little shops. The Masonville General Store has a lot to offer in the way of unique, earthy, fair trade, organic goods. The store also includes a small cafe. There are groceries, cosmetics, jewelry, cards, chocolate and candy, clothes, and gifts for any age.
I found a new artist to admire; Nikki McClure. The store had several of her works, including note cards, prints, and this darling little book. We have had a flock of chickens for about 5 years so anything “chicken” related always excites me.
More Nikki McClure; look her up on pinterest!
I gravitate toward the stationary things, but believe me there is a lot more to this place than notepads!
These “Foot Notes” have the actual footprint of common little wild creatures.
My little sign language lover found this ^^ and we bought it; hand signs for the entire alphabet.
This is the little cosmetics area; I bought some lip gloss and admired the dainty earrings~
Isn’t this the sweetest packaging for earrings?
I bought a natural geode for Jacob (the family rock collector) to break open himself (he loved it), a bar of organic chocolate (shared with Mom and Grace), some note cards, and a few things for Joanna’s birthday coming up in June. Grace picked out a tiger eye stone and a little paper bag of Swedish Fish.
(Grace and I ate at Brooks on Sunday, Mother’s Day and we had no wait b/c we sat at the counter. By doing so, we avoided an hour or more wait. The line was out the door and around the building. Also::: OUR FOOD WAS SERVED ON SCARLET FIESTA.)
