Grub and Goodies from the Island ~


We ate dinner at the Front Street Grill on Penn Cove in Coupeville. We had Penn Cove mussels and Coconut prawns with very yummy sauces to start off our meal. Dinner was really good and we had a nice chat with the Chef since we ate early and there weren’t a lot of customers.


The next morning we had our breakfast at the B & B and enjoyed the company of a younger couple who were staying at the Inn.


We found a few fun treasures to bring home. The hanging candle holder is from a thrift store on the main highway. It was $1.75 and I saw it at a nice gift shop for $16.95. I found the Christmas dinner plates at a shop in Langley. I paid $25.00 for 10 of them. The 4 red heavy glasses were $12.00 at an antique mall in Freeland.

So after a trip to good ole Fred Meyer today I’m pretty sure I am all done with my Christmas shopping. I was happy to find out that Fred Meyer is giving a 10% discount to 55 and older customers on Tuesdays up through December!

Hope you are all doing well while counting down the days to Christmas…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Good buys! You still have one more shopping Tuesday before Christmas…in case think of something else you might be needing.

    Your B&B looks like a neat place.

  2. Sounds and looks like you had a marvelous time! Ten beautiful Christmas plates for $25? Your thrifting skills amaze me, Ellen! I want to go shopping with you! 🙂

  3. So the Christmas plates are your new family plates…or a gift? You got some great finds.
    Dang, I love mussels, can’t eat them now.
    I wonder if our Fred Myers will do the over 55 discount here.

    • Jill, I’m keeping the Christmas plates for our Christmas meals. Believe it or not, these are the first set of Christmas dishes I own except for the 4 dessert plates I picked up last year at some thrift store. I like that they are understated with just the trim decorated…
      I didn’t think I liked mussels but these were great and the sauce was bread dipping good!

  4. Oh Wow! Ellen, you found some beautiful treasures at beautiful prices! This bargain hunter is a little jealous. The dining room at the Inn looks so charming. Sounds like a fun trip! laurie

  5. Oh that picture of the Coconut prawns has created a craving within this housebound gal. I’ll be asking Husband to make a run. Glad you had such a nice trip.

  6. I can see some new table scapes coming. You got some good deals there! I know you must have had fun discovering your treasures.
