Pink Saturday


Good morning everyone.   Each week on Saturday, there’s a blog host,  Beverly of “How Sweet the Sound”  where you link up to share your photos in pink.   Today, I’m excited that we’re going to Collingswood for their Farmer’s Market.  We last visited in the month of May primarily to go to The PopShop.

The Pop Shop is a retro place with fountain sodas of many flavors, make-your own combinations , ice cream sundaes, and delicious burgers and fries topped with cheddar cheese and bacon if you dare.

Walking along the pretty tree-lined Main street, I stopped very frequently to capture images of this quaint town.  Who remembers the store, Woolworth the five and dime with the luncheon counter inside.  My mother worked in a Woolworth’s in Pennsylvania when she was 16  years old in high school.

Here are some of the photos:

The Pop Shop, get your fountain sodas, malted and ice cream soda here!

The Pop shop is also on Facebook and features daily specials.  I wonder what today’s special is?

A sneak peek of the menu. Which flavor syrup, and which soda will you choose, the combinations are endless!

And a stroll down Main street!

Pretty in pink, store frame window! Step inside for a bite at the Tortilla Press.

Now, continuing on our walk down the Main Street, I spotted a sign pointing down a pretty Alley;  pretty as in pieces of porcelain tea cups dotted the walls of the building.  The Sign said “The Painted Cottage”.  Let’s take a look.  Can you see the pink painted shutters?

An antique store, can you see the pink?

Once  inside, you can see that the owner has sought out all kinds of furniture and has painted them in hues of  all white or pastel blue.  Oh my, how pretty, can we have one please.  We could surely fit a small piece  end table in our car.  Let’s come back soon.

Prettily painted, can you find the pink tea-cup?

    What a fun outing…love going to the ‘old town’ section of cities~ We have a old fashioned pharmacy and soda fountain near us that is 100 yrs old. Great to see the antiques! Hapy Pink Saturday 🙂

    Looks like I found another Jersey Girl! We have been to the Pop Shop…had a fabulous grilled cheese there. Did you see the “Throw Down with Bobby Flay” at the Pop Shop? I like it when I can completely identify with another blogger and this time I literally walked the same walk!
