The Orange Possum
12 – 1st Street NW
Here I am– still in Hampton, Iowa. My actual first stop during the Hampton trip was a place called The Orange Possum. Kind of a quirky name for a shop and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. The store offers an eclectic mix of clothing, jewelry, handbags, scarves and funny little gifts– you get the idea.
And, the prices are definitely right– I managed to get out of there for well under $50. (Perfect for someone like me with a semi-smoldering Visa card)
After thoroughly scanning the racks, I just had to buy something. I settled on a funky bling-bling belt and a gray lace trimmed scarf. As far as the belt I wore that right away much to the dismay of the TSA when I went thru airport security oh well– it sure did look cute!
Never been under that famous striped awning?? Take my advice, if you ever find yourself in Hampton Iowa let Mr. Orange Possum greet you with a whip of his tail. For sure I will be back the next time I’m in Iowa!
