Fabric shopping in Batesville


BATESVILLE, Ark. – Maria’s parents arrived about 5 p.m. yesterday and today’s big adventure is a fabric shopping expedition to the fabulous Marshall’s Dry Goods in Batesville.

Maria and her mom got in an hour’s worth of shopping this morning before we adjourned for a big lunch at Josie’s Steakhouse on the east bank of the White River.

Now Gene and I are hanging out at the Cinnamon Stick coffee house about a block north of Marshall’s while our wives dive into the bottomless pit of fabric bolts. Turns out the coffee house was a general store with an opera house upstairs. After that, it was the original location of Marshall’s before they moved down the street.
