A New Trader Joe's

I have no idea if there was really a trader Joe but I'm awfully glad there are many of these terrific markets!

I was first introduced to Trader Joe's in Arizona. 

Back on the east coast,  from where we live, it's a one hour ride to get to one but it's always worth the effort, gas and time expended.

When I heard there was a new Trader Joe's in Albany, New York, I wanted to click my heels.  

Last weekend, off my daughter and I went to pay a visit to this lovely new store.

The flowers are highlights of any visit to Trader Joe's.

Just look at the variety.

Prices aren't bad, either!

 Gorgeous roses are available, too!

Also, hydrangeas.

Gerbera daisies are lovely.

So are regular daisies with greenish yellow middles!

The gladioli are beautiful, too!

Don't want flowers? Okay, have a banana. 

Or some frozen treats.

How about cheese?  The prices on the goat cheese are fabulous.
It's very affordable and one can  even find some from Vermont!

I LOVE this place. Go, go, Trader Joe's!

Today is Sunday, a good day to remember to be thankful to God.

 So, today I thank Him for Trader Joe's markets everywhere  and all the people who run them.

I love Trader Joe's! I buy many things there (coffee, spices, bread) but I do love the flowers! Hugs, Linda

I have three of them very near me. I love to have their stuffed peppers, salads (esp. the beet one) frozen things and maple crunch cereal...I could go on and's a great place and inexpensive to shop there. I hope one opens up much CLOSER to you.

So wish there were a Trader Joe near me!

The very first Trader Joe's in our town opened just a little over a week ago. We were only two of many who were there when we visited on opening day, and I returned three days later! My new favorite snack there is Lite Kettle Corn!:) In fact, I believe I featured it in my blog a few days ago. There were other products I bought - fat free cottage cheese, arugula, prosciutto, 2% milk - but it was really crowded inside, and taking pictures was out of the question.

I've been away a few days, and I will catch up on your wonderful blog soon!

I love Trader Joe,s, but I would have to travel 125 miles to the closest store. Whenever I'm in a town with one, I like to stock up.
They have this spray bottle of all purpose cleaner that has the best smell ever. I love it!
I was out looking to see who my followers were following and I came across your blog. I love it and I am now your newest follower.
I would love to invite you over and I would be delighted if you choose to follow me back.
Have a great week, Connie.

We have a Trader's Joe about 20 miles away. I must visit after reading these comments to see what I've been missing.

I should have said Trader Joe's.
