friday m and i woke up at 5am (it's true!) and headed to greenville to catch an estate sale. we were hoping to find a bounty of treasure for pack rats, but only walked away with two vintage cameras and a handful of records. live and learn, i 'spose, but though we were a tad disappointed we still made a day of it by walking 'round downtown greenville. it was freezing and still pretty early when we parked, so we spent a bit of the morning warming up in this little cafe with a mug of coffee or two.
greenville also happens to have one of my favorite vintage shops - clothing warehouse - where i tried on loads of dresses. although they're a small chain - and i do prefer a more handpicked feel to most vintage shops - it's still a fun place to rummage. they were having a buy one get one free sale and i was feeling determined to find something for myself and a freebie for the shop. sadly, none of them fit quite right - apparently it was one of those days - but i did walk away with a pair of cateye sunnies so it wasn't all for naught.

obligatory bathroom shots:
walking up and down the streets we came across this little building that we fell in love with. perhaps the future home of pack rats? from peeking through the window it seems that it was once a salon. we do have a soft spot for little run-down joints:
beer (for m, i was too stuffed on salsa and chips to even consider):
after all that we decided to find trader joes. we'd never been to one and were getting a little tired of hearing our friends go on and on about it without really knowing what the big deal was:
we walked away with a log of goat cheese, multivitamins, 2.99 beer, dark chocolate, and coffee. when we finally made it home we were exhausted (we never ever wake up that early if we can help it) and spent the rest of the evening in bed with popcorn and the larry sanders show. hey now!
