Fall Cleaning

Fall Cleaning

Spring cleaning is traditional in the Hitty cupboard, but Gracia makes sure her Carnicería gets a deep cleaning in the fall as well, in addition to the daily attention, and the thorough weekly cleaning.

Polishing

Gracia wiped, polished, dusted, cleaned and tidied from the topmost shelf down to the pumpkins on the floor…

Scrub

…and scrubbed the butcher’s block with the handmade lye soap…

.

.

Sweep

…and Cordelia swept the cobwebs from the corners and the dust from the crevices!

.

.

fruit

…they both arranged the fruit so it looked as delicious as possible…

New Apron

…then Cordelia put on her brand new apron…

.

.

Ready

…then they were ready for their October customers!

  1. No worries about salmonella in Garcia’s Carniceria. It must be so enjoyable for her to have Cordelia on site helping.

    • No indeed, they keep an impeccably clean shop! The sisters work very well together, and during the slow times, they reminisce about their life in Argentina before they were adopted into the Quimper household.

  2. It’s so nice to see the Argentine Hittys working together in the Carniceria. I’m always amazed at the change of seasons to Spring and Autumn that the cleaning “bug” hits and one wants to clean and tidy up. It’s delightful to be in the company of such stalwarts in this endeavor.

  3. she is such a good shop keeper! Her shop is so nicely stocked and spotless! the best kind of shop and with such a lovely sales person!

    • Gracia prides herself on her spotless shop and its contents! She loves to be able to help the customers find exactly what they want, and a tidy shop certainly helps with finding things!
