farmers market & shine gallery

one of the first places my sister & I went was the farmers market where they have lots of different food vendors to choose from as well as lots of little shops, including the fabulous shine gallery:









they also have the cutest metal chairs throughout the market & signs dispensing excellent advice:


but if you go make sure you get your parking ticket validated or you'll have to pay $12 & never hear the end of it from your sister about how she can't trust you to read signs anymore...oops!

p.s. there are more photos from the market & shine gallery on flickr

What gorgeous photos. You'd love the World's Largest Toy Museum in Branson.. you never want to leave. The toys in this pictures remind me of that place.

Gosh -- I had one of those little color tv viewers that I loved; really took me right back to see the photo and retrieve that memory.... Good thing I've never been to the market or I think my head would have exploded from all. the. wonders! To heck with signs about parking validation -- be glad you got out with any sanity (or money!) left!!

Oh how fun! Love your photos and I agree, that is very good advice!

I just opened up the Shine Gallery link and had to promptly close it down. I know an afternoon of browsing when I see one. I'll have to save that for later!

Om my Lord! I know I said that before, but, I STILL HAVE my little tiny TV! Gracious... it could be worth $5 by now....
