Homespun Gallery

On top of listening to some tunes by Joe Metzka this weekend, I also squeezed in some shopping, some dining at the Kaiserhof and another local joint I'll blog about later this week.
I did get a chance to check out the new Homespun Gallery in Washington, located at 110 S. Main Street in a newly-renovated building on the square.
The furniture featured in the store is more high-end, reproduction furniture built right here in the US. The furniture is made to order, so if you find a piece you like, you can even choose the color or finish to suit your taste. There are some beautiful wall units in the shop.
There are several gift items in the store, including some neat toys made in the USA.
I found some mittens, which I'm sure I'll need sooner or later this winter, despite the warm temps so far, made from leftover sweater scraps, by some adults with disabilities right here in the USA as well. The mittens are available in several sizes and colors.

Got a piece of advice for u, go eat at Angie's Restaurant in Creve Coeur. They have the best ribs and smoked beef brisket I've ever had. They have a sign out front proudly proclaiming that they are famous for their BBQ ribs.

I have driven by there, and was curious. I'll have to check it out!

BTW, I also saw 1/2 price gift certificates here, which is the first place I heard of Angie's:

What time where you at River Beach? I got there right after their first set. Where you there to catch the Hendryx tune?

I was at River Beach from about 8:15 'til 11, but got caught up at the bar talking wine and travel with a nice guy named Dennis. Had a good time, and heard some great tunes from Joe!
