Paducah Day 3
sunny day and we ware ready to go again to see more of Paducah. we walked about 6 blocks to the downtown area after parking by the convention center. First stop the Quilt in a Day store that is Eleanor Burns's shop. It had $5.00 and $3.00 fabric in the back room. I found a heavy weight denim colored stripe that will make a great bag. The Fenkle building downtown was an older empty building converted to a shopping mall for quilters for the week. The AQS publishing was having a book sale with lots of books for $5. I got a Jean wells book but could've gotten more. Colleen loved the Primitive Gathering booth. I bought some 30's fabric for a quilt I am planning. lunch was at the best deli in Paducah with an adjoining bakery. I had turkey on cranberry/walnut bread. Kirchhoff's Colleen had a roast beef with Navarro cheese and grilled onions with French sour dough. Donna raved about their pasta salad. At the bakery for dessert, Sandy had lemon bar, Colleen had oatmeal, chocolate, raisen, pecan cookie called the "cowboy". Also she tried an oatmeal chocolate chunk cookie. Donna tried their sugar cookie. the streets in this area were old bricks and were tree covered. the buildings have been preserved, but there was flooding last year, may have closed some of the stores. the flood wall is decorated with scenes of the Indians that lived in the area. Barge traffic on the Ohio river. will have to write more later time for bed.
