Go Vintage

Had a blast poking around this shop with my niece and sister! 
But I don't know if I can abide by this advice!

There were TONS of old clothes and accessories.
Selby Avenue just east of Snelling.

Penseys, Ltd.

I sometimes wonder how certain places stay in business.  Like this spice store on Grand Avenue called Penzys Ltc.  But they've been around for years so they must be doing alright.  The space used to be an old grocery store back in the day and there's still the old usable sliding ladder so you can access things on shelves.  It's pretty awesome.

I bought all the fixings for a Panch Phoron, which translates to 5 Seeds or 5 Spices in Hindi.  I used the blend when making red lentils.  It's so good!

Can't we all just get along?

The place to exercise your opinion is at the polls people.  Go vote!  Boycotting businesses and defacing public property are just bad form.  Oh, and whining or raging on Facebook and Twitter won't get you anywhere either.  Jefferson Street exit off southbound Ayd Mill Rd.
