That’s a quote– or more likely a paraphrase– from the movie, The Quiet Man. The character, Mary Kate, wants her shiny things. Who could blame her? She wants what she wants.
Just so a woman wanted a restaurant quality range in her new home in Greenwood, Mississippi. “No such range existed,” so home builder Fred Carl designed one. … Viking Range! (Story from Off the Beaten Path Mississippi.)
How much is that range in the window?
It’s definitely for sale.
Inside the shop,
across the street from the Alluvial Hotel,
there is a LOT of shiny stuff.
A classroom at the Viking Cooking School
Here’s the interesting thing, to me. Not four blocks from the Viking Cooking School and the Alluvial Hotel is one of the most run down impoverished neighborhoods I’ve seen in a long time. Not many shiny things in those shotgun shacks, I’ll bet.
