Maybe it was the scrumptious weather ... I made a delivery of pots to Red Orchard in Bethesda, MD (just 10 minutes from my house, why involve a brown truck?). Red Orchard is located in a shopping center filled with other locally-owned businesses, kind-of on the fancy side. It took me forever to find a parking spot. Then I had to weave through crowds carrying large shopping bags. Inside of Red Orchard, it was just as crowded. I got caught up in the good vibes. I bought lunch at Balducci's market, then some yummy smelling (and pricey) soaps from a store called Celadon, which I felt compelled to explore due to its pottery-related name, even though there was no pottery inside. Signs that the economy is coming to life? Let's hope so.
