What the Beck???

The Best of Nelson County 2017

       I was reading The Kentucky Standard, our local newspaper, and they had a section called The Best of Nelson County 2017. This section listed 100 categories for the Readers' Choice Awards. I decided to visit as many of them as I can and scope them out. It is a good way for me to further my knowledge of the town and local businesses, and it is also just down right fun!
       Today, I visited three locations.

#32     Best Consignment Store:  The winner was Gabby's Fine                                                              Consignments

 Gabby's has new and gently used consignment items.
Gabby's is located at 93A North Salem Dr. Bardstown.
502 - 331 - 9002

 This trip was a wonderful opportunity for me to shop.
I purchased this purse for only $1.00.  It was in
perfect condition.

I bought these three sweatshirts that still had 
the original store tags on them.
They will be perfect in the fall when the weather turns cooler.

 This tunic was fun. I thought it might be great to wear
if I ever go anywhere that I need to be a little dressier 
than T-shirts and shorts.

I always love statement necklaces, and am a sucker
for anything pink. It was very inexpensive, so I had
to have it!  The purchase price of all of these
items was a whopping $25.94.

#40     Best Hardware/Building Supply Store:  The winner was                                                     Buzick's Lumber and Home Center

Buzick's is located at 1330 E. John Rowan Blvd. Bardstown, KY

 This block was my main reason for going to Buzick's today.
This is the base for the Santas that I make for the holidays, thanks to Marla Burger and Robyn Gola. Yes girls, I am still making them from The Spirit of Christmas books.
I have been to Buzick's in the past to have wood cut for me,
so it seemed like the perfect place to go for help.

 The staff is kind and very helpful. Today, I was also looking
for stainless steel polish to keep my workroom appliances 
beautiful. I have also purchased a lot of other materials here,
such as light bulbs, batteries, clamps, and Japanese
Beetle traps.

#90     Best Lawn Mower/Tractor Dealer:  The winner was Joe                                                       Hill's Powersports and Equipment

 Joe Hill's Auto Center is located at 
103 S. Salem Drive, Bardstown

 This 4-wheeler is so darn cute and has a back
bed that can be dumped.  This is my first choice.

 This one is my second choice, probably because
it is larger and more expensive!  Whenever I
have saved enough money, I will buy myself one
of these 4-wheelers.

This second one has a pretty good size bed. 
Having one of these would help me transport
items to the barn and the back of the property.
It was also be fun to feel the wind in my hair!!!
