After our fun downtown, I was all hopped up on history and loving my town, so I decided to go to Very Richmond to see what kind of Richmond memorabilia I could find. I've been searching the internets for Cat's Meow pieces of Richmond landmarks to expand my collection, and have been unsuccessful. This store has all things Richmond - ornaments, paintings, drawings of local colleges, Virginia wines, etc., etc.
They had a few pieces: Capitol building, Virginia flag, Governor's Mansion, and Main Street Station. The train station one was awesome, but it was huge! So I only picked up the Capitol and flag. I also picked up a Richmond pub glass and an ornament. Here's my loot:
I spotted these awesome photo collages at Christmas when Bonnie and I were browsing the shop, and I think they're awesome. I was so tempted to buy the Richmond or JMU one today, but then I thought to myself "Self, why don't you just take a bunch of pictures around town and make your own?" Wow, what a good idea....save myself $40-$60!
So, after the tours and shopping, I was pooped so I came home...and I've been sitting around ever since. I cleaned a little, did a little laundry, read a little Biology, etc. Looking forward to a super-relaxing night!
