This weekend we went to Solvang and did a little shopping at my favorite stores.
Shelley & Bill Berman and Family run a little restaurant and all the proceeds are donated to the Shriners. Their restaurant is located in the Hans Christian Anderson Square. In addition, they have a gift shop; a clothes shops; a separate sports wear shop; a dress shop and a bulk fabric shop. Everything is donated by their daughter who is a designer and her clothes are found at top department stores. All the proceeds at these little shops are also donated to the Shriners. I love that the fabric is .99 cents a yard and most of it is really nice and much of it can be used for the costumes I make my family.
We spent $42.00 at the shops and purchased the following:
Two dresses for me ($15.00)
one top for me ($5.00)
two dresses for Aislyn ($15.00)
one belt for Asilyn ($1.00)
one top for Aislyn ($1.00)
one skirt for Aislyn ($1.00)
one top for Allisa ($1.00)
one skirt for Allisa ($1.00)
one mug for Evan ($2.00)
When we have gone on our cruises I was able to find some modest; affordable evening dresses for the formal dinners on the cruise ships.
We at at their restaurant and we spent $32.00 for six people:
3 egg salad sandwiches
1 grilled cheese sandwich
2 double cheese burgers
6 curlie fries
2 dr peppers
2 root beers
2 pink lemonaides
Such a deal! :)
The family also owns and runs Shelby Ranch. The husband used to appear in the old westerns with Ronald Reagan; John Wayne and Roy Rogers (just to name a few).
I also get my essential oils at one of the shops in Solvang and I get them at a really low cost.
Any way, when family comes to visit I try to get them to go to Solvang with me so that I can show them the nifty little shops that I have discovered there.
