Downtown Shopping Visit report....

Yesterday my good friend from Rome and I went to Blue Ridge

for a day of shopping in the downtown area. We arrived about

10:30 am and started with the quilt shop as my friend is interested

in making a baby quilt. The store is full of beautifully coordinated

fabrics and some gorgeous quilts hanging on the walls and from

the ceiling. The sales ladies there were very friendly and helpful.

Then we made our way down the main street checking out the

antiques and unique gift shops. Some shops are just beginning

to get out some Christmas merchandise. I suspect it won't be long

before they are all decorated and full of holiday items.

We had lunch at Serenity Gardens around noon. It wasn't crowded

(most unusual!) and we were seated right away. I had the

delicious chicken sandwich and my friend had half of a chicken

sandwich and macaroni salad. She loved both. A couple next to

us ordered a burger and onion rings - both huge and looked

delicious! (May order that next time).

The rest of the afternoon we continued on looking on down the

street. I did notice a new building going up. I sure hope Blue

Ridge keeps its quaint downtown atmosphere and never ends

up like Gatlinberg.

I saw a friend I graduated from high school with who was staying

in a cabin with some friends....small world.

We stopped in Ellijay for some apples and I couldn't resist a box

of apple cider donuts - yum!!

All in all, we had a great day even if it was cloudy all day - at least

it didn't rain on us.

We plan to return soon, maybe before Christmas to check everything out.

Thanks for the report. Christmas shopping in Blue Ridge and Ellijay is a true joy, not like the craziness of the malls. There are absolutely wonderful stores in both towns.
