Lollys and Blue Gate

As I made my last trip into the Davis Mercantile building to shop a little more at Lolly's on Saturday morning, I took several photos along the way.  It turns out that this wasn't really my last trip there because late in the afternoon a few of us made an emergency run for just another little bag of fabric before we headed for home the next morning. 

This is Lolly's entering from the porch. 
There is an old bicycle on the front porch with a bucket full of Christmas greenery and a little decoration.
The door is all decked out in greenery with a wheelbarrow full of Christmas presents.
As you stop at the door and look to the right, there is the porch. There are a few rocking chairs sitting there, but during the warm months there are more rockers and a lot of them are full of husbands waiting for their wives to finish shopping. I would imagine they are each telling the other how much fabric their wife already has at home and that they couldn't figure out why they could possibly need more. 
There is the entrance.  Gorgeous hardwood!!

The window display has a quilt made of red and green cuddle.  The snowflakes are raw edge applique'.
This is the quilt hanging outside the entrance.  I believe it is from one of the Judy Martin books, and it is hand quilted.  The photograph doesn't show it but the dark fabrics are greens and purples. 
This is the Civil War room.   This is Hanne's favorite room. 
The Moda Room. 
Lots and lots of books.
New Civil War fabrics. 
Lots of brights and in the foreground a pretty french braid done in orientals. 
A big selection of thread and a cuddle blanket

This is the Kitchen Cupboard.  Whenever I go to Lolly's I come here because this is where they make the lattes. 
This is the Blue Gate Restaurant located at the north end of town. 
Decorations in between the doors of the Blue Gate.
Christmas tree inside the restaurant. 
The big tree outside the building next to Blue Gate. 
This light display is at the shop across the street from the Blue Gate. 
Either I changed the setting on my camera or the tree changes colors.  We may never know.  I have a lot more photos and after Thanksgiving I'll post them.  

Hope you have some time to stitch in between preparing Thanksgiving dishes.  I may just have to settle for looking at some fabric or looking at a quilt book.  I bought some really nice fabrics at Lollys.  I'll take photos and post them in a day or two.

Oh what a wonderful place to go. We do not have anything like this store here in Aussie. TFS. Loved it.

Hi LuAnn,
I've never seen a store like this. I think I would spent the whole day there and than I couldn't carry all the fabrics and other things. It's great to see all your pictures.
Have a nice day and take care.

I wonder if those trees actually did change colors? If you solve the mystery, please let me know. More wonderful pictures!
