Painted Shovel Mercantile


For those of us in the Forest Park/Avondale neighborhoods it is heartening to see new businesses popping up here and there!  Yesterday I visited The Painted Shovel Mercantile on 41st Street, just down the street from Avondale Park on the left.  They are just getting settled in but owner Julie Nelson took a few minutes to show me all around. It's a MAJOR photo op so I'll have lots more photos to share. Today the shovels out front caught my eye. They don't have the signage out yet so you can look for these. Tell them I sent you!

Your picture makes me want to get to work. (Interestingly, we don't use shovels here in archaeology; instead, a big hoe/turia.)
Good luck to the new place. Sounds like my kind of store.

They do remind me of the ones we have in our garage and I am using every single one...

Quite an abstract style photo. With some room of imagination with that air of why they were there in that arrangement

Good for thoughts
