One of our first stops was in St Peter MN where we had lunch and explored some shops on Main Street, including a shop called Contents. They had gorgeous season décor and gift items, but also had a good sized section devoted to kids, with quite a few "retro" items and lots of educational toys and books.
I picked these bike streamers up for my 4 oldest grandkids. Anyone remember having these as kids? I sure do! I loved having my streamers fluttering from the handle bars of my bike. Some fun stocking stuffers to get my Christmas shopping started.
Our next stop was a discount fabric store called SR Harris as we reached the suburbs. And I did some stash enhancement there. More about that another time. Our last stop before a late supper was the General Store of Minnetonka. OMG!!! That was a fun stop. More on that another time too.
The whole trip was a fun, relaxing time - lots of good conversation, didn't watch the news or read the papers - just had some fun.
