The National Harbor MarketPlace

I am "not" a shopper, nope, never have been, and I don't think I ever will be.
I can't impulse buy and I am a little cheap...that makes shopping in big box stores difficult.
I do however like little shops, unusual places, mom & pop shops...
these outdoor strip shops that are not crowded and fun.
We found that at the National Harbor MarketPlace.

Cute, small shops, no one was around...
except for Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Henry Ford...
American Visionary Statues that came from Brooklyn, NY

It was fun meeting Abe...

and hanging out with George.

This Model T-Ford was on display,

along with Henry Ford himself.
If you look closely, you can see FORD spelled out in his clothing.

I love these old cars!!

The National Christmas Tree is on display...

At night, the tree looks like this, it changes color as music is playing.

These colors were my favorite.

  2. What a neat place and the tree is amazing....

  3. Hello, these are all wonderful photos Debbie. I love your poses with the statues and the tree. It does look like a nice place to visit. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  4. You are my kind of shopper - we could have such fun! I love mom and pops - most other shopping is merely necessity (an often online). This looks like a fun place!

  5. ME too!!!! Do-not-like-to-shop!!!!!!!

  12. I love that statue of Henry! Very clever metal work.
    The trees are out of this world!!

  13. Great tree and place in general. Glad you pointed out Henry's coat. I would have missed it.

  14. You are putting me into the Christmas spirit -- for the first time. Beautiful trees and decorations and I love those guys you two are hanging out with. The Ford logo thing is amazing work.

  15. I must say that I love this one so much! The reason is all the cute photos of the two of you having such a great time. Of course, the National Christmas tree is spectacular and even more fun that it turns your favorite color. Blessings and hugs!
