Leakey, Texas

 

We got up pretty early again this morning and decided to run into Leakey,( pronounced Lakey) to look for someplace to eat breakfast.  The only place we could find is called “Leakey Feed Lot”.  It is a very unique place, right on the Main Street in town.  We were actually the first customers, and the only ones, I might add.  Mary, our waitress, was very loquacious, and kept us entertained the whole time we were there.  She actually sat right down at the table with us to take our order and to chat.  She wanted to know where we were from, and told us all about her family.  I love Texas!!  We have never met a stranger here.  I took some pictures of this place.  I doubt if you have ever seen a place like this, nor will you ever again.

The food was really good.  The best hash browns I have ever eaten, and Mary brought us some special fried biscuits with some of her Mother’s homemade cactus jelly.  You just don’t get treated like this in very many places, none that I have ever been in.  She wants us to be sure and come back for their chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes, so we told her we would.

I hadn’t been back to the house for very long when my phone rang and Winnie wanted to know if I wanted to go out with her and Nancy for a girl’s day out.  It sounded like fun, so off we went back to Leakey.  There are several consignment shops and resale places there, so we hit them all.  We also visited 3 gift shops, and a wood-working shop.  So many beautiful things.  I bought some used crochet magazines for 10 cents a piece, and 3 tops, that are like new, for 50 cents each.  The only splurging I did was to buy a t-shirt that was on sale.  I took a picture of it to share with you.

We decided today that we will have to take another trip over into Uvalde to see how many resale or consignment shops we can find over there.  I pay full price for very few items.  The t-shirt was on sale or I wouldn’t have bought it.

 

I received a couple of comments about different shops some of my readers go to, and just want to let them know, I have been shopping at these places for years.  I do buy all my appliances at a regular store so I can get the warranties, and extra plans for labor on them, but anything I can buy used, I do.  Thanks girls for sharing your bargain hunting with me.  You ALL are welcome to give me any information on saving money that you may have.  There is nothing I like better.

 

I think I will mosey on over to the club house and see how the decorating went.  I might take a couple of pictures to share with you tomorrow.  Stay safe.

Shopping for bargains is always fun. That looks like an excellent restaurant that you found in Leakey, and you made a new friend, to boot!

That restaurant sounds like down home Texas. Having lived in Texas for three years, I can visualize it so well.

Try Neals Restaurant in Concan, 18 miles south of Leakey. They serve honey with their fresh hot bread

Hi Pidge,
I read your comment on my post last night, and the Berkshires is a beautiful spot. But at this point, with us just starting out, I need more than a "bucket list"...I think I need a "40 foot dumpster list"!! I have the whole country to see, and I can't wait!

Hey pidge! We're new readers of your blog and are loving it. I can't believe the steal you guys got on the RV park! We've been pretty exclusively dry camping, but a month with full hookups at under $400 - in warm weather... now that's attractive!

I'm always up for bargain hunting! It's the only way to shop. =0)
