When any family or friends visit me in Texas, I like to take a trip to historical downtown Carrollton. It’s full of locally owned shops, and my favorite is the Silver Star Mercantile. My dear mom-in-law gladly let me drag her there for some window shopping during her recent stay. I didn’t have to twist her arm too much…
The Silver Star is one of those places where the door jingles when you walk in. I love that!
And the owner, Susan, has such an artistic, creative eye for packaging and presenting her wares. She has everything from buttons and books to antiques and barbecue sauce.
I used to be a jewelry hound, now I look more than I leap.
And you might tell yourself you’re just gonna look for a minute but an hour later, you’re still oohing and ahhing in the back of the store.
There’s nothing like a slow summer afternoon spent with loved ones. I hope your summer is sizzling too!
