I will have to do another post on Middleburg sometime. We will be going there again as it's a lovely little town, one that we have been to many, many times in the 29 years that we have lived in our present home.
Above shows Scruffy's Ice Cream Parlor. I borrowed these photos from on line. In the top photo the parlor is on the left hand side, and below the building is in the middle. It also gives you a good idea of what the street looks like. Dorothy, Pat, Gregg and I were passing by and it was suggested we get an ice-cream. Great idea!
There is a thrift shop attached to the side, but unfortunately it was closed.
The dog I showed you yesterday is still on duty, offering a drink with a sweet message for anyone who has adopted/rescued a four-legged friend.
As we enter the store you are greeted with the faces of animal photos which cover all the walls.
There is also animal adoption information on display. I enjoyed looking at all the wooden animals hanging from the ceiling.
I enjoyed our visit very much. The shop sells Hershey Ice-Cream in 16 flavors. I enjoyed my delicious scoop of Butter Pecan. I read online and it is important to note that I didn't test this out myself so I really don't know, but it said that this is a cash only place, no credit cards unless it comes from a local bank, no out-of-town checks are accepted. There is an ATM next door at the Sona Bank, and at Safeway down the road. All that aside it is a great place to visit and I look forward to going back.
On one of the walls is an artist's illustration of the front of the shop.
I cropped the ceiling fixture as I liked the look of it. It fits in nicely with its surroundings...
and it definitely fits in with my whimsical side...
and best of all?
It not only serves delicious ice-cream, but they share the love of animals with their customers. I will gladly make sure I have cash in pocket the next time we visit. Hopefully the thrift shop will be open as I would like to take a look around.
