#LoIsInDaBl Day 11 – Dancing Cranes Imports

I think the prompt is more about buildings and maybe architecture, but when I really started thinking about a building I love, the first place that came to mind is a little shop called Dancing Cranes Imports.

I’ve talked about it before on my blog, but it is literally one of my favorite places to go. Not really even to shop, really. I just like to walk around the store and take in the ambiance. I love the smell and the feeling of peace that washes over me when I walk through the door.

Adelle was the one who introduced me to the store and it became the thing we did when we went out together. Andru asked her what she wanted for Christmas and she told him to get her a stone. He, of course, came to me asking what the hell she was talking about (although maybe not in those exact words). I took the boys about a week before Christmas, but I don’t think they enjoyed it even half as much as I did. Although Jaxon ended up going back and buying me a gift for Christmas the next day.

It was a stone necklace that brings friendship and love. It made me cry when I opened it, that my son put so much thought into a gift for me.

I’ve always wanted to dress more like a hippy or granola, and they do sell clothes that I love. But why is it that those types of clothes, even though they seem to be so simple, are way more expensive than stuff you can buy at a mainstream store? I’m thinking it’s because some of them are handmade? Or maybe they charge more because the clothes are cool as shit and who wouldn’t pay more to dress like that?

Sometimes I imagine I was a witch in a past life and I picked herbs and helped heal people. Maybe I was burned at the stake and that’s why I have red hair?

This post is turning into more of a stream of conscious type post, but I’m okay with that. Just know that I love the store and would visit more often if my budget allowed it. I always spend way too much money when I walk in there.

  1. Now that sounds like my sort of store. Thanks so much for sharing and I bet we got burned together in a previous life :-). My nickname at school was “witch” which I hated. Nowadays I am rather proud of it because I know more about what witches really were. And I just adore the German children’s book that got me the nickname: “The Little Witch” by Ottfried Preussler. The little witch was a ginger and she had a raven as a familiar. I think I need one ;-). Thanks for sharing such a loving post!
