“Come on Mary, there are two more shops I wanted to get into before three o’clock.” The women picked up their prior purchases and one by one they entered three more shops of shoes, cards, and books.
“Wow, I’m beat Andrea, are you ready to go home?” Mary asked, joining her cousin sitting on a two seater bench.
“I think I am. Wait, what’s that over there?”
“Over where?” Mary asked wondering where her cousin was looking.
“There, where that little brown door is. The sign over the door says ‘Lost Keepsakes,’ Andrea said pointing to the small shop edged between the two large display windows of the other stores.
“Oh, maybe it is just a lost and found department. Andrea?”
Mary’s cousin had already left the bench and was heading for the brown wooden door. Mary groaned and picked up her bags to follow. The small shop was set back amongst the sleek modern shops dotting along the mall of people movers and pedestrians. The front face of the shop had old carvings around the small etched windows.
Turning the old brass knob was like opening a door to the past as Andrea and Mary entered the quaint antique store.© A. Nation (Amazon Kindle)
