SOMETIMES IT’S JUST too hot to do business…apparently.


Photographed last week in downtown Elysian, Minnesota, when the temp hovered around 90 degrees Fahrenheit with high humidity.

    Well that is a bummer! Maybe no air conditioning in the shop???

    In our wanderings (especially very small towns), I have found that thrift shops located in older buildings have no A/C. Since income from such merchandise might be on the lower end of things and installation of anything smacking of an ‘upgrade’ quite expensive/not possible, the shopping experience has been similar to “flea markets” located on a very hot, very black parking lot on a sunny summer day. Just adds to the “thrill of the hunt” for me, though!!! LOL!

    The joys of owning your own business I guess!

  4. Awww, sad.
    I love the name of the store, too!! 🙂

  5. I agree with the no ac comments! I can’t imagine how hot and stale it would get without it.

    That’s funny – good for them!

  7. Hope they didn’t go to a cool lounge. I have danced with a pitchfork, atop a haystack many a sweltering day, never thought of putting up a closed sign.
