The main reason we went to Stockholm was to eat lunch at the Stockholm Pie and General Store. One of my dear friends told me about this place, and I've been wanting to get there ever since...now I finally had my chance!
The building has a cute vintage charm inside and out.
The inside is decorated SO CUTE!!!! The colors were blue, red, black and a creamy white. All the tables had that vintage ice cream parlor feel and were covered in red gingham table cloths.
We placed our order at the counter and then chose this cute little window seat overlooking an old Texaco station (now converted into a restaurant) to wait for our meal.
My husband liked his pie, but wasn't thrilled with it. He felt the ration of peas in comparison with the other vegetables was too much: and he does not like peas! haha!
Hubby chose Coconut Cream Pie and thought it was o.k. but wasn't quite in love with the taste. Next time we go back, we will skip the creamed pies and try a fruit pie. I have the feeling we will be happier with those!
After we were done eating, we walked about town and visited some of the gift shops. Here is a better look at the Texaco Filling Station converted into a restaurant.
This is a view of one of the side streets in Stockholm. I told you it was small...blink and you miss it.
This is the Historic Stockholm Hotel...still open for business!
A house turned into a fun business.
This is the main street in Stockholm where the majority of businesses are located. I found a great pair of flip flops ( shoes previously shown here) and some jewelry at one of the stores here.
My husband had me put one of the necklaces I bought at the gift shop in Stockholm on right away, so you can see one of the them in the pictures below. The other one I wore in my Stitch Fix Jumpsuit post. I LOVE looking in gift shops for unique fashion accessories.
The last thing we did before leaving town was check out Stockholm Gardens. They sell annuals, perennials, garden furniture, garden accessories, etc. But they also have beautiful display gardens which I always love to stroll through. It was late May, so there was not much in bloom but lilacs and iris, but it was still lovely.
I absolutely loved this historic building filled with fun garden accessories.
It started to rain, so our day ended more quickly than planned. I didn't get to visit all the shops I wanted nor take a walk along the great Mississippi River, but it was still such a fun date and I look forward to going back in the fall.
Have a Great Day! Amy
