Good thing their memories are ageless, as their things will wind up in a thrift shop someday.

Mary said...

Yes, so true. Memories are definitely ageless.

Lynne said...

Indeed . . . memories are ageless!

Lovely and true...I'm guilty of buying 'yesterday' and love it.

Farm Girl said...

How awesome there are those grapes in the store. Nice poem too.
I remember my grandmother and mom having a day of making those things and one sat on our coffee table at home for years.

Sandra said...

your shop would just fill me with fond memories. i love to wander in stores and look at what my grandparents and parents used that are now considered antiques. like those beautiful glass Christmas balls. mother had them from WWII but they were clear glass except for 2 red ones

Oh boy, do I love that teapot.

PS. Stop by when you get a chance. I want you to read my Memorial Day poem. I think you would relate…or maybe where you live, they still do it up right.

Oh, very cool! I am a thrift store shopper. Bargains are fun. Memories are special. I really enjoyed this response to the prompt--- and I loved the photos of the treasures, too.

I love that tea pot! If I was nearby, I'd run over and buy it!

Gail, what a wonderful take on the prompt! It's so true, you walk through and see all these things from your childhood or grandparents home :-) Thank you for the smile :-)
