POP!/ Ruby Tuesday


Thanks, I think I will have some!

Our local hardware store offers small bags of help-yourself popcorn on Saturdays and Sundays. Hmmm. I wonder what I'll desperately need from the hardware store this weekend.

Seeing red? Why not join in the Ruby Tuesday fun, by visiting MaryT at http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com/

My husband is always coming in and telling me he's going to run down to the hardware store - maybe I need to check ours out. :)

One should never shop at a hardware store when hungry (or is that saying for grocery shopping)? I'd like to purchase some #10 wood screws with a Phillips head, while munching...Nice retailer!

Jacob said...

I've seen those popcorn things in stores, too. Lois Anne loves them!

My Ruby Tuesday entry here.

I love popcorn and I'll bet it tastes great. Just go for a stroll, I'm sure they won't mind. '~)

eden said...

that would be nice if we live close to that Hardware lolz.. because this time my hubby is fixing our kitchen cabinets so he definitely needs something in the Hardware.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

In Australia the hardware stores sell BBQ sausages with onions and sauce in bread rolls. I have to avoid hardware stores on the weekend, the aroma of those sausages is way to inviting. Perfect red popcorn machine for Ruby Tuesday! :)

Felisol said...

But, but the popcorn box is already empty.
I'll buy a nail pistol elsewhere.

Great choice EG. What a nice gesture for the folks at the hardware. I'm betting they will see lots of customers.
Hope you enjoyed your trip to Rochester. It's about 5 hours from us.

Nice looking cart. They know how to tempt people.

Small City Scenes said...

Neat post for ruby Tuesday. The local tire store also gives away popcorn while you wait. MB

Loree said...

Oh wow. Cute popcorn cart. There's awlays a good excuse for popcorn I say.

Robin said...

Hubby would love that hardware store. Happy RT

We have one of these in Sam's Department Store on Main Street. It feeds hungry Vermonters and visitors 7 days a week and is a great draw, especially for people with cranky children.

Cezar and Léia said...

It's so cool, perfect capture!
I want some pop please!
Léia :)

Dianne said...

I love those old popcorn thingies, they're so vintage looking

and yummy too :)

B SQUARED said...

It's the only store I don't have to talk my wife into going to.

Stephanie V said...

Now that's a hardware store anyone would want to find reasons to visit. And it's free. Amazing!

Heidi said...

Very fun find this week! I can't believe they just give the popcorn away for free. Where I live they charge you 25 cents for every bag. I'm jelous!
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

I love these kind of popcorn machines. Wish I had one in the middle of my living room!! :O)

Jim said...

Hey Ms. E.G. Guide, this is a very pretty red popcorn machine. Our hardware stores don't have those, one has a deli.
Happy RT! Don't eat too much popcorn! :-)
