I think I want this piece!

We can thank this man, one of my heroes, for AMERICA’S NATIONAL PARKS! Yellowstone National Park  – millions of acres of flora and fauna, much of MAGNIFICENT, intensely beautiful.  Other parks, sanctuaries, too! Our national, natural treasures – AMERICA AT ITS MOST PRISTINE. AMERICA WRIT LARGE. Just as the cowboys and cowgirls experienced when they went Out West almost a couple of centuries ago! We can thank our brilliant, energetic, unstoppable (in his day the pundits called him a steam engine in trousers!) President Theodore Roosevelt, a LOVER of nature and practicing naturalist for creating our national park system, for stepping in and JUST DOING IT, MAKING IT LAW, PRESERVING ALL THE SPACES HE LOVED. He saw the TREASURE and KEPT IT WILD AND FREE, MAKING SURE FUTURE AMERICANS see it, too! BULLY, Teddy!!!!! I adore you!!!! (named one of my cats in your honor years ago!)

Some of the coolest, most unique gifts …

A few years ago Rosalie picked up what is now her fave cozy VINTAGE Mr. Rogers Sweater at Goodwill on Park Ave, Worcester. For around $2 !

The sweater’s tag is so 1950s – all America is #1! Love the automobile!

“THE WORLD’S BEST FEELING! AMERICAN FEELING!”

WOW.

The Goodwill Store on Park Ave is open 7 days a week – most days ’til 7 p.m. Great selection of some wonderful dresses, skirts, blouses, jackets, etc! For $2, $3, $4! Lots of their clothing is very gently used. Some of it vintage – but you have to SPEND TIME LOOKING!!! Make a shopping date with a gal pal and have fun! Proceeds go to running their job training programs for people in recovery and more! 

… can be found at Goodwill, the Salvation Army and, of course, ABBY’S HOUSE GIFT THRIFT STORE on 52 High St.  and UNIQUE FINDS on 1329 Main St. (Webster Square).

Why pay “vintage stores and shops” the extra money (they mark up $$ big time) when you can go straight to the source – the places they go to buy their stuff? And you can buy the clothing/items for a song! And support great causes and local small business folks who actually make a living selling their stuff. It’s not just a hobby. It’s how they pay their rent/ buy groceries.
