Good Bye to Farmer Robert's

Today I'd like to share with you about one of my favourite places to go.  
Farmer Robert's Store in my town is closing and I'm sad.
They have lots of organic food and great service.
They have to close their doors in a few days. 

One thing they always had was an amazing rack of tea cups for those who would sit at their rustic tables for a cup of tea or a bowl of soup..or other yummy food available there. 
Farmer Robert put up some of the tea cups for sale, and I bought two of them,
to remember the store by.    

There of course are lots of items on sale.  
I picked up a large bag of bentonite clay for making toothpaste,
some diatomaceous earth,
some spices, 
and of course some tea.

The diatomaceous earth was a great deal, 
and I'm looking forward to using it. 
I encourage you to look it up if you've never heard about it...
great for your health. 

So we have to say goodbye to the place we buy our farm fresh eggs from as well...
but learned that another store in town will carry his eggs.  That was comforting! 
My family loves those eggs!

Do you have your favourite stores?  Perhaps one that you enjoy browsing in...?
This is one of my kids favourite stores because they sold corn syrup free jelly beans. :) I have a couple more tea cups.  
Ones with memories attached...the best kind! 

Praying you have a beautiful day!

Always sad when a favourite store closes, love your memento's. The two cups/saucers are a delight

That's a shame that you're losing your favourite store :( Glad you were able to pick up a couple of tea cups for mementos, they're rather nice! They're aren't many quaint stores down here it seems, mostly boring chain stores.

It's unfortunate when an independent store shuts down. But I'm glad that you were able to give those two pretty teacups a home. The organic teas that you picked up also look good.
