Weekend Transformation

We live in a small, Southern town. The county is large, and there are a lot of people in the county, but the actual town is relatively small. In our town, we have Old Money, middle class, and poverty stricken people. It's not very often that you see an expensive car... unless it's from the Old Money, or from a family that has someone who works in one of the two colleges in town. Yes, we have 2 colleges.... I don't get how such a small town has two colleges (and they're known nation wide), but we do. As I was saying, you don't see people driving huge expensive cars very often, and unless they are from the two groups mentioned above, we don't have very many preppy people, either.

Anyway, on the weekends, it amazes me and my husband because it's like the rich, stuck up, preppy, I'm better than you are, my crap doesn't stink kinda people take over our little town. Our town has a weekend transformation.... from regular, mundane people to Hollywoodesque people. It's fun to see where the license plates are from, and how many expensive cars are parked along the sidewalks. We always have Lexus, BMW, Mercedes, Land Rover, Acura, and we've even had Bentleys. Our town has a huge name furniture store that has imports from all over the world. It's a really huge business in town, and there are a total of 10 buildings housing all of these expensive imports. It's kinda cool because some of the furniture is in old tobacco warehouses. My grandmother (who lives on the Pennsylvania/Ohio state border) heard someone in a beauty shop say that they were coming down here to go to this particular furniture store. It's a 10 1/2 hour drive. THAT'S NUTS. Why would you drive all that way for FURNITURE? Who would have thought such a small, gone in the blink of an eye town would bring all of these people to buy furniture?? It's quite an interesting thing to see!
