Mini Shop Hop

Seven of us went on a mini shop hop Saturday. We went to 1910 House Quilt Shop in Hogansville, Georgia. It is such a nice shop and the owner is really nice. She gave us each a 10% discount and a goodie bag. No one told me about that until after I made my purchase or I would have bought more there. LOL. I didn't take any pictures there because I blogged about it before in this post.
Next, we headed out to Newnan. This is where I took all of my pictures. This shop is called Heritage Quilts and is located on the historic town square. My first photo is of the courthouse. It is beautiful with copper roofing which has a nice green patina.
This next photo is a view of some of the other buildings on the square. I am standing outside of the quilt shop here.
Oh, look! There goes Marliese. She is leaving the quilt shop for the little cafe next door.
I had a chicken salad sandwich on sourdough bread.
But this is what I really wanted to show you. Isn't this petit four the cutest thing? Most of us bought one of these and they were really delicious. Almost too pretty to eat. I said ALMOST.
When we left Newnan we went to Columbus for Sew Much Fun quilt shop. This is a nice store although the space is way too chopped up for my taste. There are lots of tiny rooms filled with fabric. It is hard to figure out which rooms you have been in and which you have not. It is still a nice shop and they do have TONS of fabric. The owner, Lain, even has her own fabric line.
After this we went to JoAnn's, but I am totally underwhelmed with that store so I won't waste any blogging space on that one.
Overall we had the best time and laughed and talked a lot. I hope we get to do it again soon!
