Some people's mecca













Some people's mecca is a giant antique shop that is a veritable mess, where things don't have prices, where treasures are stuffed into every crevice, where glorious dresses live on the floor, where beloved mink hats are piled to the ceiling, where owners are utterly unhinged and hail from across the pond. This is my mecca and I visited it yesterday in Barryville, New York at the Barryville Emporium. I left with a trove of treasures and a heart warmer than when I arrived.

That is utterly impressive. I LOVE places like that. Crazy places where things are piled so high on top of each other that you really do have to dig for treasure. Those are the best! :)
