      What a fun memory! I love those vintage fabrics and that picture of the lunch counter! My Mom was a cashier at a Woolworth's when she was in high school in the late 1960's. I'm not sure I ever saw one with a lunch counter though. I'll have to ask her about it!

      How I loved Woolworths. My little brother and I would take the bus downtown to Christmas shop. We would get all our presents there. Then each of us would get a chocolate malt and share french fries at the restaurant side. Thank you for bringing to my mind a memory that places a smile on my face. Your page almost makes me smell the 5&dime all over again. ♥

      ohhh how I LOVE love LOVE your journaled pages!!!!!!!!!! I remember living in small times in the mountains and going to the big city made for a special trip, but this even makes me reminiscent of a few years back when Sarita was a toddler and we would go into the high street stores, I was just commenting how sad that the big supermarkets have taken over and the high street stores have now closed and are so very few.....Woolworths.... we cried when they closed them here in England!!!!! It was a store with a huge impact in Sarita's growing much bought there, so many shopping trips in our memory ...such a shame they closed :( [​IMG]

      This is such a walk down memory lane! I love the way you journaled your story ... can really feel the anticipation building for the fun part of the trip. My Gram used to take us to the 5&dime too - and we always got to pick out a little something. Love the photo so much - it's perfect in B&W and the kit is really lovely! So well done! :)

      How fun, great memories! I love your vintage, retro looking backgrounds and elements. I remember Woolworth's growing up, but I grew up in Chicago. On Wednesdays, when I had 1/2 day of school, a few of us would walk to the nearby shopping area (about a mile 1/2 away). We'd go to the library, check out the stores, and we'd always stop at Woolworth's to browse & have a bite to eat. My fav was getting a root beer and French fries. Not the healthiest, but it is what it is. And I'd swap out the fries periodically with lemon meringue pie. :-) They had the best!

      You chose the perfect elements to scrap your memory! I love the tiny patterns of the paper and all the beautiful vintage elements. We used to have lunch in Woolworths too, in Hawaii. I always remembered eating grilled cheese with my Mom there.
