Thrift Store Books

When on vacation this past July, one of our routes took us through Vermont, the green mountain state. I could immediately see why they called it that.

To get from one interstate to another we had to take this charming (I am serious) two lane road, which of course had the usual summer construction. The scenery and towns were so quaint and beautiful. We would not have gotten to see it on the interstate.

I don’t even remember the name of this little town but the next few pictures are a sampling of it. I loved the fence and the flowers and the white and black house.

This structure was so neat with the blocks of rock and the muted colors were fabulous! I even got the informational dog waste sign in the picture. I was taking these photos from the car, on a sunny day. That’s why they are kind of crooked and I did have to adjust the brightness and contrast to make it show how it actually looked.

This tells you we were near Vermont 12 and I don’t know if Suicide six is a ski mountain or what. There are also two other town names that may help. Before we hit this town though we came across an old bunch of buildings that had artist studios, a huge thrift shop, a pizza shop with a bar. We pulled off to take a break. It was the Bridgewater Thrift store in Bridgewater Vermont.  I had the best time there, came out with a heavy box and a heavy bag and spent $50.00!

I had been intending to get some art books to brush up on the old masters and I found four good ones at the total price of $11.00. Many religious pictures in this one.

This is a great one about Van Gogh.

I love the impressionist painters.

Another good one, my head will just be bursting with knowledge. I have more books to share, but will save them for another time.
