The last few trips to the US have involved us researching and finding some of the best Antiques Malls within the areas we have stayed. The last time we went to Las Vegas, we came home with milk jugs, christmas decorations and football pennants. The things we buy are never ‘worth’ a lot of money but are the quirky little things that we like to have in our home. It also amazes me that some of the drinks themed objects we have bought for a few dollars, can be found at 5 times the price in the UK! Hence the reason we always have to buy an extra suitcase for our return journeys.
We went for a drive around Mobile to see what we could find and we came across a small antique store. The large iron door gave the impression that it was closed but we tried anyway and in we went. Many people might have walked in and straight back out again.
When Adam came to Alabama last year, he found a restaurant on his way home from a shopping trip. When he rang me later that evening, he could not stop talking about the food, the experience and the atmosphere.
Lambert’s Cafe. Three sites in the US; we visited the one in Foley. No reservations. No credit cards. Just turn up and wait.
All that Adam kept telling me was that they threw bread at you and you had to shout up if you wanted some… to be honest, I didn’t really believe him.
