and so it is, Mayberry once more...........a poem

It was told by my mother that my father of old was a BEATNIK, a poet, a prose. I was also told that my father of old knew Kerouac, Ginsberg, Neal and more and that he is the man driving Jack around in New York City with the women with the hooked nose in On The Road.
These are only stories that I’ve been told, for my father I do not know, but, if there is any truth in it at all perhaps that is the birth of my prose.
And so therefore in my wife’s facebook memory of Jan 8th 2014 these inspired words unfold and so I share with you once more.
Gregory Vroom Walter Jan 8th 2017


and the flaming arrow was shot as it arched through the sky and hit its target thus bursting into flames. the fuse was lit....... from silence one began to here a noise, then a roar, and as the flames burst forth from the bottom cone the ROCKET was launched. the crowd formed in awe the spectacle never before witnessed by man or animal. spine tingling bursts of energy raced through the crowd, sparks emanating from finger tips, eyes bulging, hair standing on end.
to be sure it was a day to be remembered and was never forgot as the sheep herded back to their flock,---yet still inspired…..the sun set, the once busting berg back to rest…Mayberry once more.

Just a little info 'bout us.


Terri D.
My name is Terri and I am the owner of Wanderlust road in Salida Co. I have been a thrift store junkie since I was a teenager. I am pretty fashion savvy and have an eye for the hip cool stuff. I love thrifting for sweet pieces that draw the eye, are fun to wear and feel good in! I am very inspired by beautiful fabric, design, vintage cowboy, the traveling gypsy, things that have a story or one you can at least imagine. Wanderlust road is a dream made real.....and one I am so happy to be a part of!

Established in 2011.
We are a Ma and Pa Business, After years of my wife helping me chase my entrepreneurial ideas we decided it was time to chase hers. So.....after a 2000 mile west coast bike ride on a tandem in 2010, we found this building, and opened shop Memorial day weekend 2011.
A consignment shop ultimately becomes what your consigners bring so we decided the only control we would have over that was to create a cool, vibrant and funky atmosphere and hope that that would bring the consignors we wanted. We think it worked. In addition to Women's consignment clothing we are Vino Salida's downtown tasting parlor, and we offer Soulflower Clothing, a line of our own T-Shirts and have some great Embellished clothing artists.
