Retro Saturday

Got a call from our friend Carolyn last week. She lives in the neighbouring province of New Brunswick.

She wanted to meet with us on the weekend. She said she had gotten a couple of things for us this past summer in her `travels` in N.B.

And since her husband and two `kids` were going to a wedding in Manitoba, a province they used to live in, and she wasn`t going with them, Carolyn thought it an opportune time to meet for lunch somewhere half-way for us both.

We decided to meet in Amherst, Nova Scotia.....about halfway I a retro shop called Frenchy`s.

We both got there at almost the exact time! She was backing into a parking spot as we were coming through the parking lot.

She immediately showed us the glassware she had for us. I liked it. She knew I collected kitchen glasses....and these came with their own you can see in the photos above. The colour is fantastic don't you think! 

The other set she has had for a few years and was from her aunt`s estate. It was a Cornflower parfait set, I think......very pretty set indeed. Carolyn said she was in a `de-cluttering` mode as of late, and knew I would appreciate it.

I have known Carolyn for as long as I have know Ron. I met her at Acadia University. She was in my `education` class

And you know when you meet someone and know without saying it that you like them and enjoy spending time with them? Well this was how I felt with Carolyn.

She is very easy to be around and always has something new to teach  and share with us. She is a very 'crafty' gal.

There was nothing much at Frenchy's so we headed to Sackville which is a university town just across the border in New Brunswick. After we got through customs without too much hassle........kidding! Sackville is the home Mount Allison University.

It is a great little town with a few good places to eat.....which is exactly what we did at a newly opened cafe. All in all it was a great way to spend a very wet afternoon.......friends, food and of course gifts of glasswares!!!!
