This weekend, Shaeda and I took the scenic route to Winchester, Virginia. It’s pretty much our favorite place to go thrift shopping (thank you, Sydney Liann). We took the toll-infused, beautiful Route 50 west through Virginia, aiming for a church thrift store in Upperville. The church was closed, but we stumbled upon an estate sale, where I purchased a couple of gorgeous stainless steel knives with wooden handles — for FOUR dollars. The real gem of the day was our brunch, also recommended by Sydney, and executed perfectly by Bonnie Blue.

The ladies were so warm and welcoming when we walked in, and literally everything on the menu sounded delicious, so it took a lot of effort to not order everything that was listed on the wall. Also, you know how much I love a good chalk wall. It was also just the perfect opportunity to take my new camera out for a drive!

They had a cute little coffee bar, and while I was far too caffeinated to purchase some at that moment, I did buy this bag of coffee beans below for the office — we swap many things, and coffee is one of them.

Shaeda ordered the pulled pork, cucumber salad, and mac and cheese (always her fave!) and I had a jumbo lump crab cake with eggs and grits. The crab cake was pretty amazing — and I loooooved that it wasn’t mostly bread crumbs. Just lumps and lumps of lump crab.

It didn’t last long. Naturally.

They also swore by their Turkish tea, which is another form of black tea, but just a tad bit stronger. Perfect for a mild (or hot) summer day.

Also, we ran into this cutie as we were leaving the estate sale. Isn’t Buster the cutest?

My favorite purchase of the day was this 1949 manual typewriter. I’m well on my way to having a shelf filled with typewriters for my next apartment.
