a successful treasure hunt...

...includes not just the finding of wonderful items, but the eating of delicious food and, y'know, a little good cheer. Like the potato pancakes and Polish beer at Legs Inn.

We were lucky we were able to get there before they closed for the season. The joint was all decked out for their end-of-season Halloween party.

We felt like we deserved the treats, since we had a couple days of successful hunting! For example, these fabulous 1960s shoes, some still deadstock in their boxes!

Those red loafers have coiled snakes on them!

And here is a preview of clothing coming to the Etsy shop shortly, some of which are finds from our treasure hunt.
