We always try to beat the crowds and get the majority of Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving. There are normally a few little things left to find and purchase after Turkey Day has passed to get one out among the throngs of crazed, to-the-mall drivers to sustain that holiday spirit!
|Step in to the past|
So...a few days ago 'R' and I trucked on up to Newburyport to look in the specialty shops there for one specific gift. No luck.
|The old luncheonette|
But we had a good morning of it anyway and stopped for coffee at Fowle's. Not much has changed there since it was built although now it's just a fully stocked newstand in one half and a counter or booth luncheonette in the other.
We roamed around long enough to have to stop for lunch on the way home.
A step back in time time.
