A visit to “The Market”….

Seems it’s been weeks since I’ve actually taken a day and just checked out what’s going on around me.  First of all, I had to go to the dentist.  Can you believe I spent over $900 to have one tooth crowned!!!!  Pardon me, but does this sound a little ridiculous?  While I set with my mouth wide-open & multiple tools and hands in it, my dentist shared stories about his trip to Italy.  Yeah, I guess so!  At $900 a friggin’ tooth, I’m guessing he can go to Italy about as often as he wants.  Sorry, I’m digressing.
Anyway, the rest of the day was lots more fun.  I met sister Judy and we headed over to The Market.  We hadn’t been there for so long and it looked incredible. 
      The Market is set up as a shop of shops and some good friends (Janice, Joanne and Mary) have their shop inside.  They have amazing merchandise and they are just the best at display.  Check these shots out.The Market 004

These are some of the ladies from The Market including my very good friend Cathy, second from left.  Cathy has worked at The Market for years and is the smiling face that greets you behind the counter (or hanging pictures as she was doing on Tuesday).
Check The Market out when you’re in Springfield and tell them I sent you.  It’s located in the Brentwood Shopping Center, located directly across from Battlefield Mall.

Wow... Impressive!!! {not the tooth... sorry, I know what you mean... I tell my dentist, when I go in, "we are putting out fancy stuff, sharpen his pencil and check out his addition! I also remind him, that inside my tiny little purse,{ that is always on my lap} there is a tiny little pair of 'vise grips', and then let him guess where they will be clamped, if I feel, any, and I mean any pain!}
Looks like the rest of your day was wonderful! Polly and I are going on a roadrip, tomorrow...Wish you were here!

Yeah, it's just as bad at the veterinary hospitals, $350.00 to clean Scratchy's teeth...NOT!!!

WOW...what a shop, many goodies there. I'll get back to ya on the table at Manleys', but I'm thinking $195.00, but honestly, I can't remember...too many dead brain cells!
