Leone came home with a small basket of soaps she won at a card party. I smelled one my step-mother used to use. Cashmere Boquet. I never wanted to use it as a kid, thought it smelled too perfumed. I liked Lifebouy and for shampoos we always used Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap. Don't remember why, certainly not for the fragrance. Smelled like an asphalt road on a hot day.

I will forever associate the fresh, calming scent of Coast bar soap with my dear coastal friend Sue. She keeps a bar in her guest room. That's where I first encountered it and I sort of imprinted on a combination of place/person/scent.

It's amazing how many things you can't find anymore anywhere else, but there they are in the Vermon Country Store inventory.

I buy Licorice All Sorts and boston brown bread in a can at Vermont Country Store. I see they sell Walnettos, remember them? Wish I could remember the advertising jingle. Know it started Walnettos arwe crunchy and chewy, you'll go for that swell caramel. Think the the last line was something like Oh boy but Walnettos arwe swell.

Another store which has a lot of oldfashioned goods where many Amish shop is Lehman's Country Store. It carries all the stuff you wished you had when there is a prolonged power outage, but also food and has a great website. I got years ago my sicle from there when I could find locally only those small things which are better at scratching then cutting.
