What have you been doing lately? That’s a question T and I get on a regular basis from our friends, and I stutter around trying to think of something interesting to say but really rarely coming up with anything approaching coherence. What have we been doing lately? Well, let’s take this Sunday afternoon as an example.
Today T said why don’t you go with me to Prosperity…I need to do a few things at the antique booth this afternoon and it’ll be a fun Sunday afternoon ride.
She has an antique booth in the Towne Square Antique Mall in the little town of Prosperity on Highway 176 north of Columbia and near Lake Murray. I’m not usually inclined to go to work with her, but on a Sunday afternoon who could say no to a ride up the country with my favorite person in the world.
So she packed up her treasures in the black Dodge Dakota pickup, I climbed into the co- pilot seat and off we went. She was right – it was a fun time.

(C R Koon Highway, Prosperity, SC)
Prosperity, SC – love that name
Unloading – oh, so hot this afternoon
We are behind the antique mall while T unloads her treasures from the back entrance near her booth. We had unexpected company as a customer walked his dog in the blistering heat.
Aprons one of T’s “weaknesses”
(temperature at least 100 degrees,
but she’s in her element)
Open for business on a Sunday afternoon
Zoe prefers shopping in a/c comfort
to walking outdoors in the heat
T’s business buddy Shelley busy, busy
Shelley is the Booth Designer while T is the Pricing Guru – they are a dynamic duo!
Work, work, work…
Shelley arranges aprons…
Hm…where should HOPE go?
Affordable art by local artists
There will always be books in T’s booth
Two and a half hours later –
Time to head home to check on what that bad little dog Charly has done while we’ve been out having a good time…and that’s another story.
