i just love finding treasures where you least expect it. driving back from a wedding weekend upstate (congratulations again jen and michael!), we stopped for gas in downsville, new york. i wasn't even going to get out of the car until i saw the sign - gizmos and gadgets. could be good, could be really bad. it was all of those things: just one of those stores where time stood still and the merchandise piled up. it's hard to describe exactly what they were selling, or weren't selling. my heart skipped a beat when i saw the craft section. there was not a single item manufactured after 1969. my prize haul included some oversized wooden macrame beds and a handful of pre-painted doll heads - including one for a cat doll. sold!
