Bridge Street: The Rodeo Drive of Huntsville

I had a nice Labor Day yesterday.  We had spent most of the weekend at home because my husband was on call.  But, on Monday he was free!  I had heard great things about Bridge Street in Huntsville, so what a better day to go check it out.  Just he and I set out for Huntsville.  We hadn't been anywhere together alone in awhile.  It was a nice getaway.  When we got there we saw this.


That is a very nice Barnes & Noble you see.  The place looked promising.  So we parked and walked down outside the shops.  We saw these kids playing in the sprinklers while their parents watched.


They were laughing and having a good time.  We walked into a few shops, but it wasn't long before I realized that we were way out of our league on this Bridge Street thing.  While the kitchen store was more my speed, the rest of the shops were for people that have money to spend. Let me rephrase that...LOTS of money to spend.  I likened it to the Rodeo Drive of Huntsville.  In the Lucky Brand store, a pair of jeans was $129!!  WHO pays THAT?!!  I found a pair of Lucky jeans for my son one time at Factory Connection for about $40, if I remember correctly.  I just don't understand how someone could pay such a high price for something that you could get somewhere else for much less.  I guess it's the bargain shopper in me.  Or, some people have more money than they know what to do with.  I doubt I'll ever know that feeling.  But anyway, I got off on a tangent, there.  Sorry.  Now, back to the day.  Here are a few pictures I took of why I think that it's called Bridge Street. 




I did enjoy the atmosphere.  There was a band setting up to play.  It made me wish that we had waited just a while so that we could enjoy them.  There was such lovely scenery.


And one last shop that we went in was a fine wine and cigar shop.

Which put me in the mood for this...
We traveled over to Lone Star steak house and had lunch.  The drink above cost as much as my entree.  But, it was worth it.  See, I have better things to spend my money on than a $129 pair of jeans!  A girl has to have her priorites right, after all.  ;)

You sound correctly prioritized to me!! I guess us 'poor' folk will never have the desire to spend that much on a pair of jeans when it would buy a bunch of groceries.
