My version of "Black Friday" shopping

For some people "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday" shopping has become a ritual.  I don't really participate in either.  I prefer buying from brick and mortar stores because I like to see what I'm really getting before I hand over hard earned cash.  Who wants the trouble of having to ship something back if it wasn't what you were expecting?  And shopping at the malls or big box stores during the holiday season is stressful.  Traffic, parking, crowds, lines... Who needs it?  For those of you who love it, that's wonderful.  It's just not for me.

However, after spending Wednesday and Thursday in the kitchen cooking and cleaning for Thanksgiving, I was ready to get out of the house.

I spent Thanksgiving with my parents in South Carolina.  They live in the vicinity of a fabulous shopping district called "Ram Cat Alley" located in Seneca, SC.  This is not a sponsored post by the way.  But if you ever find yourself in the area, I highly recommend checking this place out.

There are shops which sell antiques, vintage items, and hand made items.  They also have some good restaurants to stop in if you get hungry or just need a break from shopping.

I found some handmade items for myself.  As well as some cool vintage finds.

Yellowware Bowl.  This might be my new thing to collect!

I added a Christmas themed tea towel and some pears and key limes for seasonal decoration.

Salt and Pepper Shakers

These needed a bit of cleaning up when I got them but look great now.

Hope your Thanksgiving was great and if you did the "Black Friday" thing, I hope you've recovered!
