Return Trip: Does Anyone Remember the Akron Store?...

Two Sundays ago I visited the Pasadena City College Flea Market for, dare I say, the first time!
Well anyway, I stuck to my budget and then had to keep my hands in my pockets for the rest of the visit. I saw these really cute vintage colored shot glasses in the original box and just had to bring them home to the hubby. You can barely make out that the original cost which was a whopping 49 cents. In even smaller print, it says "the akron." OMG! I remember happily trailing around after my parents around this home furnishing store in the early seventies! The store was located between 182nd and 190th streets on east side of Hawthorne Blvd. in Torrance. Where's that darn time machine when you need it? Does anyone else remember "the akron" store?

Sunday: A Drive Through Poole

It's Sunday, let's go for a drive through Poole
and maybe find a pub for a bit of lunch!
Sound good?
In this case getting there is all the fun thanks to
No need for the passport or green card!

Out and About: Long Beach

The fragrant trumpet flower
quietly makes it presence known
The evening is still
Between them, the buildings hold
a fragrant gift for the guests
