It’s one thing to announce boldly, I’m moving forward! But it’s another thing to pause and reflect: What am I moving forward TO? Do I really want to go there?
Which has so far prevented me from ever detouring down this tucked-away-nook staircase at Northampton’s unique Thornes Marketplace. Acme Surplus seems to promise cheap overstock bonus merchandise, a regular grab bag of goodies, doesn’t it? But the lurid colors and lighting, combined with the need to descend into unknown basement depths stops me every time.
Overreacting? Take a jump over to sister blog Touch2Touch and find out in today’s post (this is the bonus) what kind of a place I imagine it might actually be, and who one might encounter down those stairs. Oh, and have fun, you bold soul!
