Only truly dedicated shoppers can stand a polish pottery shopping trip. We left the house at 1000 on Friday night to arrive in Graf at 1230. The bus picked us up and we drove all night to arrive at our first shop at 0530 Saturday morning.
Curt and I were going this time just to get a "few more things" that we didn't get on our last visit. These were famous last words. After the first few shops we were warmed up and totally forgot the "few more things" mantra.
We got more plates to go with what we had before, teapot, and a set of appetizer/dip plates with hot chili peppers on them. These will be perfect for when we are back in Texas!
Jen Warren and Audrey Hensley (the wives of two of the medics) went with us and made the trip even more fun. They are really fun girls and had not been to pottery before. They weren't as crazy about it as we were but they did find a few things to purchase.
We had lunch at a place that used to be a hang out for hitler. His name is still etched in the wall outside the door.
I had perogis with cheese and potatos and Curt had this bread bowl with stew that had beef, plums, sourkraut and potatos.
After lunch we had a few more shopping stops before heading home. Even in Poland Michael Jackson is popular!
