Feel free to take notes because I'm about to tell you how to make a good friend.
First take two
Mix together with two kinds of soups, one brownie with nuts, and two hours of small talk, trade secrets, and tall tales. Bring to a boil in the Texas heat.
Throw in three junk stores and a fabric store and stir well.
Add very little money, several good finds, and a home tour and bake well. When the timer goes off (sadly) and it's time to say good-bye, you will have, in the best use of the words, a new friend - a treasure not usually found at garage sales and thrift stores.
