Horse Picture

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed some activity around the Union Hall building where The Misty Glade Antique Shop used to be.

I hadn't seen Donna, the proprietress, for a good while, so I stopped in to see if she was around. She wasn't—she'd long since moved out. But Clay's Consignment Shop, which used to be on Scruggs Road, was moving in.

I'd shopped at Clay's plenty of times before and had gotten some good deals there—such as this cat bag and this set of Ella's Rooster dishes. Although Clay was still moving in, the place was filling up fast:

A picture, which he'd just unpacked and was still on the floor, caught my eye.

I really didn't need another horse picture, and it was a bit more than I wanted to spend. But Clay is always open to a bargain, so we haggled a bit. When he finally made me an offer I couldn't refuse, I bought it. 

It looks pretty good on my hall wall—right beside a Goodwill mirror.

It's nice to have a consignment shop only two miles away. Now I don't have to drive all the way to Rocky Mount or to Westlake when I'm in a bargain-hunting mood.
