On Wednesday, my daughter and I both had hair appointments at my favorite salon,
which is located just east of Portland in Troutdale, Oregon.
My oldest granddaughter came with us and afterwards I took her to see the Troutdale General Store,
all decked out for Christmas!
The store has an old fashioned candy counter filled with the kind of candies I remember getting at
"The Variety Store" on the main street of the small suburban town I grew up in.
It also has an old fashioned soda fountain counter where you can have lunch.
But, best of all, at this time of year, there are three levels full of Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!
So much to see and oooo and ahhhh over.
They also sell old timey style toys.
I bought this cute little snowman stacking toy for our youngest granddaughter.
(And there's a little sneak peek at our Christmas tree.)
