We are everywhere!

March 22, 2012

It was a beautiful weekend, so we hopped in the car and headed for Indiana.  Indiana? you ask, startled.  Because when you think of Indiana you think this…

The image above is from the movie North by Northwest directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Cary Grant (left). This scene was indeed shot in Indiana along Route 41 between Chicago and Indianapolis (I65 didn’t exist when they filmed this movie).

But we continued south past Indianapolis to Bloomington where it looks like this …

And this …

The daffodils, pear trees, magnolias, and forsythia were blooming in Bloomington.

We had a wonderful time, lunching outdoors and tromping about the lovely, limestone-dotted landscape. On Sunday we had brunch at a fun country French restaurant, and then ambled through the streets stopping at a what looked like a cute little boutique not far from the town’s main square. “Relish,” as the store is called, turned out to feature clothing accessories, a wonderful selection of ’50’s/60’s retro-like furnishings and home decor, and tabletop.

And then I turned a corner and what did my wondering eyes behold but …

tag Bubble Glass! Nice! I looked around and saw our white dinnerware and a bunch of other nice tag items. Cool store indeed!

We drove home happy, and found that Chicago was catching up with points south in terms of blossoming foliage. This shot was taken along Paulina Avenue just north of Wrightwood, right behind 1730 Outlet…


So stroll on down. We have some Bubble Glass, too. And so does our website …

And we’re ready for spring, and Easter. In fact, right now, everything Easter is 10% off our already low outlet prices.

Hope to see you here soon!  1730 W. Wrightwood, Chicago. Mon-Fri 10-6. Sat 10-5.
