Kentucky Walmart

Kentucky Walmart

Elderly man in one of those motorized buggies to a Walmart Employee that was walking around- “Do you think you can open a line to cash me out? There is not even one line open. They are all self checkouts.”

Walmart Employee-“No I can’t, and if you don’t like it, call 1-800-Walmart to complain. You are capable to cash ourself out like everyone else.”

Another elderly man who was in ear shot, and trying to cash himself out while struggling with his walker-“This is just awful! If I fall I’m suing. There is no good reason to have so many of you guys walking around doing nothing but watching us all struggle.”

Same Employee as she’s walking off in the opposite direction-“Well feel free to call corporate too.”

Back home we only have one line open, number 5, because they sell tobacco. Otherwise we’d probably have no lines open either. It’s all very annoying.

My only guess is that they are trying to move everyone into ordering online and having it home delivered. Seems pointless to have so many employees walking around aimlessly though. I do both, but from a marketing point of view, they are going to shoot them self in the foot in the end. People go into Super Walmart to grocery shop but oftentimes find them self on the other half of the store impulse buying stuff they don’t need. This won’t be happening much online, if at all. People like me are feelers and need to feel things before making a purchase. So yes, Walmart is just awful.


Summer Festival & Shopping

It’s that time of year again. Nothing mind blowing, but as always, I do enjoy taking pictures and sharing.

Notice the No Dollar Store sign. I bet I was the only one supporting another dollar store. There are a lot of “fixed income” elderly people in town that also don’t drive. The more Dollar General stores within walking distance to these people, the better. Many do their week to week shopping at these stores because regular markets are just not in their budgets.
Downtown Festival
Kids don’t need dated bounce houses, they need a continuous Video games to make them feel as if they are at home. 🤣
The old local one screen movie theater that shut down in the 60’s is going to be reopening on the close future. It was very cool taking a tour of it.
On to the local Country store. aka’ antique store. This old puffy back is probably from the early 70’s, judging from the colors.
Someone had a ceramic shoe collection judging from the looks of this booth.
These 70’s Libby, Coca cola Tiffany stained glasses match a set that I currently have. I found myself be at the Goodwill for $2.
This praying beanie baby plush made my heart skip a beat, as it’s like the one my daughter received when she was only one years old.
This 60’s golden wheat plate set is like a set that I currently have up for sale. It’s always neat seeing things that I have.
These unique ceramic face mugs caught my eye. I love them.
I stop by to look at this old picture each time I’m in the country store. I try to imagine what this little ones life was like. And, why didn’t the family keep this framed picture of him.
This butcher block was amazing to see. A newer piece. So well constructed!
This vintage armadillo handbag has been on my way list to find, for many years. I’ve found gator ones, but never an armadillo. I want to find it for $5 to flip though. Like my gator bags!
Another one of my favorite booths to look in. That doll has been sitting there for at least six years now.
Buy me! Buy Me!
How about this duo? Do today’s kids ever know who Raggedy Ann and Andy are?
Old Makeup compacts are a soft spot with me. I did not in plus buy any this time because we have a road trip coming up that I’m budgeting for.
This Ester Lauder powder compact was full! Just a beautiful site to see.
I’m pretty sure they stopped making these in the late 80’s.
These are the type of things grandkids would get their grandparents for the Holidays.
Late 50’s or early 60’s vinyl and metal high chair of wheels.
Beautiful old quilt that I would have picked up to flip, had it been cheaper. I generally buy quilts for $6-15 and flip for $300.
This booth was stocked with cast iron pieces.
This wooden cat bird box was very cool. It was $79
This booth was new. This was the first time I came cross clubs. I bought a new set last year though, so we do not need any. Cool to look though!
Very old washing machine. My son was intrigued by it.
Pretty Oil painting.
