Lansing has many beautiful old sandstone buildings dating back to the mid-to-late 1800s.
The trees are just starting to turn color on the bluffs (if you can see through the drizzle).
A must-do on any trip to Lansing is a stop at the Horsfall's general store on Main Street. The store advertises itself as having over 1 million items, and when you walk inside, you'll see exactly why. It's a combination hardware/grocery/homeware/gift/toy store. The owner goes to consignment sales all over the Midwest to find unique, inexpensive items to carry in his store. The aisles are super narrow, and I had to walk like a stealth ninja to avoid knocking over anything with my giant purse.
I snapped a few pictures as discreetly as I could inside the store.
There were aisles upon aisles of useful and useless items.
I actually saw an employee trip over one of the boxes on the floor.
I'd love to go back sometime to buy some quirky tableware for my kitchen.
