Reno, I’ve discovered as I’ve mentioned in my previous Sunday Traveler posts, is not the boring biggest little city after all. Each time we’ve gone back recently I’ve started to dig around, much like the gold and silver miners in them thar hills, and I’ve been able to shout “Eureka”!
The last trip taken a couple of weeks ago had the Sunday Traveler discovering Midtown Reno, a stretch of S. Virginia Street that is being brought back to life with nice little bistros and pubs. And…I found the most fantastic store that is part costume store, part consignment, and part antique store; the store is called Junkee. The employee in the photo above was trying on some new pants that had just been brought in to sell, and was most happy to model for me.
This customer was also quite pleased that I would ask to take his photo as he shopped (yes, those are his shorts he is wearing, he was not out in the store in his skivvies). This gentleman had that je ne sais quoi look that attracted my attention.
And then there was Pinky
I spotted Pinky trying on this stole, and we struck up a conversation on its merits and how great it looked on her. I hope I and her friend convinced her to make the purchase.
Next Sunday I’ll run a few more photos from Junkee’s great wall posters and hats (I really got in to the hats).
The Sunday Traveler wishes everyone a good week.
