- Fresh, ripe Indiana tomatoes are one of summer's sweetest treats, and since I'm not a good gardener (despite being raised on a farm), I'm always on the lookout for roadside farm stands and farmer's markets that have a good selection. Southern Indiana has some of the best, and Harriman's in Spencer is definitely worth a visit. YUM! Last summer, I bought more than 60 pounds of tomatoes at Harriman's on my way to Bedford for a weekend with my in-laws. We ate some of them sliced and sprinkled with more salt than we need, and we used the rest to can homemade salsa.
- That same weekend, my mother-in-law also introduced me to Aunt Kate's Consignment in Bedford, where I was surprised to find these like-new
- ripe tomato red
- suede loafers by Franco Sarto for $3.50! Score! I'm in love with the off-white leather whipstitching, and they turned out to be the same unique hue as a pair of pants, bag and watch that I've owned for years but had always paired with navy shoes. This shop is a hidden gem, and stopping there is a little treasure hunt I look forward to whenever the opportunity presents itself. The clothes and shoes are upstairs, while the main floor has furniture, home decor, and assorted oddities. While not a destination in and of itself, if you happen to live in Monroe or Lawrence County or find yourself visiting friends or relatives who do, consider hunting a bit of treasure at Aunt Kate's.
