I'm not much of a shopper. (Shhh! Don't tell. I work in retail) But I love, love, love looking in unusual shops when I'm on vacation, which is about the only time I have to browse.
Here are some pics taken in and around various retail establishments on our mountain getaway last weekend.
First stop: An antique shop in Dillard, GA. Where they had this sign:
I wanna party with her!
Or her--or is it him?
The funnest shop in Cashiers, NC
Who can resist a taxidermy shop?
and Free Wildlife Exhibit, all in the same place.
Taxidermy or wildlife. You decide. Either way, it's for the wine drinker who has everything!
I wanted to bring this guy home just 'cause he looked so embarrassed.
Finally, here's the wildlife. Two very friendly goats.
From live goats to really cute metal ones--and their equally adorable dog friends.
The world's most rustic Wendy's. It looked just the same as a regular Wendy's inside.
Best use of a tractor EVER!
It's churning homemade ice cream!!!
Fake bears were everywhere
Then we actually saw a real live BEAR, in the wild on our way back to our house.
Very, very cute tiny little artists shops in Cashiers
We stopped here for lunch--YUM!
Because it's not a trip to North Carolina if you don't have Bar-B-Q!
Visit Cashiers, NC. It's the cutest little mountain town. And for a great place to stay, check out my last post, with pictures of the house we found through airbnb.
