I saw this sign back in May and my heart broke in two.
And then the tributes went up in the front window
And then it started to go away
And so it was.
There was cake. Of course there was cake.
And Bob's infamous cookies
Of course I had a piece of cake.
I had two.
Trying to put a happy spin on a really sad occaision and stacking my photos of the store in here:
Umbrella kits. Because who doesn't want to make their own?
My favorite aisle
My second favorite aisle
Themed sales and local products
The seasonal collections for good causes
That time someone drove through the front window doors
Or the times the power went out.
Or the building flooded. That happened often.
Or, seven years ago when I didn't get the job there.
That made me go on this crazy 'choose your own adventure' ride. Which is why I'm writing this with a level of sadness and gratitude.
