The Hunt for A Souvenir

Last Saturday I took Frank's sister shopping for a souvenir. We went to an antique store next to the Shenandoah County Landfill but didn't find anything to buy. However, it became clear to her that she really wanted a small piece of artwork depicting a local scene. I took her to The Art Group in Mt. Jackson but they did not have exactly what she was looking for. I then drove her to New Market and we browsed a few nice shops. She purchased a picture of a lion but still did not find a local scene that suited her taste.

Eventually we did find the right piece at Oasis Gallery in Harrisonburg. She selected a print showing a horse and carriage in front of Fort Harrison. I was glad to find this gallery; it a little gem: attractively laid out and with a nice selection of artwork. It is on Route 11 northbound on the corner of Water Street.
