Shop Small Day 293: Fleckenstein's Bakery

Day 73: A real bakery!

Yesterday I spent the afternoon shopping in Morris with my mom.  If you’ve been following my challenge, you already know that Morris is one of my favorite small towns and has four of my favorite small businesses: Lola’s, Gigi’s, Vintage, and Blackbird’s Barkery.
