On Tuesday, I went to St. Jacobs for what will likely be my last antique shopping trip before I move. I woke up very early, and hopped on the bus. I decided to start the day with a stroll along the Mill Race trail, and had a quiet picnic brunch. It wasn't much of a picnic but it was quite lovely.

Then I got back on the bus to go to the antique mall. There weren't many people there at that time of the day which made wandering around quite pleasant. I'm trying to save money, so I didn't buy much. However I couldn't leave behind this 1950's/60's wool dress. It's a dark chocolate brown and 100% wool (with a lining). I only have one winter dress so this was very much needed.

It's actually a dark, dark brown.
One last thing, dear readers. As many of you know, I have started another blog about small business (with some millinery stuff thrown in there). I have been planning to write a post (after exams of course) about why small business is important. I strongly believe in the importance of small business and would love to share my thoughts on the matter. However, what I want to know is why YOU value small business. If you could leave me a comment, or better yet send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would to love include everyone's views in a post. I will of course give credit to your answers and link back to your blog or store if you wish.
