HEY BUDDY!! How are you?! Yep, we’re all good. I was thinking about you this morning & realized it’s been almost a Y-E-A-R since I last saw you. I KNOW! You still wearing that same crazy shirt? Yeah, me too. So. Listen bud. I wrote a few months ago, and I realize how busy you are – but seriously. The time has come. WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO MAINE???!!! B/c I am out of stuff.
Peppermint castile soap. Salt free tomatoes. No salt tuna and sockeye salmon. Dried mango. Knockoff cereal. chocolate chips. Emergen-C. Bargain priced stonyfield farm yogurt. Joe, I will be blunt. Portland is stupendous, but it simply won’t be paradise until you’re here too.
I emailed you weeks ago. Requesting a new location….and… and…Nothing. DUDE – I miss you! Baaad. The stickers and balloons. Those wild shirts. From your 2 Buck Chuck to your chocolate covered almonds. From your french milled goodness to your uncured hot dogs – to the tofu, Joe. I need you.
Portland *(maine) needs you.
your favorite MAINE-UH (really from away)
PS: And Please hurry, b/c my recyclable shopping bags have all sprung holes & I’m in need of some colorful new ones. But – only yours. xo

We actually just got a Trader Joe’s in Raleigh. We haven’t been in yet, just driven by, but it kind of reminds me of a co-op.
What is so awesome about that store?
Hayden- Put your shoes on and RUN THERE NOW!!
well perhaps they’re still closed. But go later today. If you can. b/c the world of trader joes & the world of hayden tompkins must indeed intersect and form the most magical level of awesomeness the universe has ever known.
TJs is great. If you love food (which I know you do) and you love bargains (which I know you do) you are gonna be one happy gal. Trust me on this.
closest to us is near Charlotte. about 1 1/2 hours away. neat store though.
Yeah – the closest to Portland (I think) is about the same, north of Boston.. Shuckie darn.
i’m also a fan…there’s one in ant’s hometown (westfield) and we frequent it whenever we swing by. i love their shampoos–so yummy. oh, and their snacks. yep, love that place.
Boy for someone as picky as you are – never imagined you’d be eating shampoo.. Which flavor is best?
