Ramblings of: Lolly’s Estate store

If you’ve read some of my beginning posts, you’ll remember how I espoused exploring and finding adventure in your own backyard when you can’t go on a world-wide trip.

This weekend, I followed my own advice and took a trip with my wife to Lolly’s Estates R Us in my town of Port Charlotte.

Now I have to admit that estate stores are not the number one item on my list of places to go, but I found a new way of looking at the items in these stores.  I now look at them from a writer’s perspective.

Just as the Trifecta Challenge gives you a word or definition to play with, Lolly’s gives you an item to build a story around.  And Lolly’s has tonnage when it comes to choices.  Here.  See for yourself.

You have old teddy bears, porcelain, figurines, art paintings, folk art, books, DVDs, plates, and wood carvings all vying for your attention and fairly screaming with various stories of their own.

What stories could you make from these items?

The prices are good too so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank if you find something that calls your name.

So if you are in the area and are looking for something unique to jump start your creative thought, you need to check out Lolly’s Estates R Us in Port Charlotte.  You won’t be disappointed.
