Nashville, Indiana is an old town with all kinds of country stores and gift shops to brows through. We ate a leisurely lunch at the Artist's Inn, an old fashioned Bed and Breakfast. They had the best sandwiches I've ever had! Then we spent the next couple hours browsing through the little shops. My favorite was a glass shop. The owner had spent 43 years working with glass so he's had a LOT of practice! His little shop with full of tiny, intricate glass Christmas ornaments, and figurines of every size, shape and design. His work was immaculate! He made everything right there in the shop. I love watching glass makers work! Its so fascinating!
We also hit the candy stores...for dessert, of course. :) Andy and I picked out all our favorite chocolates and taffy, and sampled every flavor of fudge in the display cases! One candy store was voted for having the best chocolates in the country. I had to agree. They were outstanding! We left with little bags full of them to sample on the long drive home. I felt like a kid again!
Andy found an old bookstore that he'd gone to as a boy. They sold old books from great preachers like Finny, Spurgeon, Moody and many more for very cheap. He had a time in there! :) While he browsed the books I went next door to the Jerky store. They had all kinds in there! Ever try kangaroo jerky??? It was expensive!!!!! I decided to pass on that, and the buffalo and boar jerky as well, and settle for an old standard...sweet and spicy beef! :)
We had a great time and I had a wonderful birthday!
