Sunday was such a glorious day. Perfect for a drive to Lancaster County, there PA. I left at 7:30. I always try to get an early start, pills so many of the flee markets open at 6:00, but that’s way to early for me. The farmland looked especially beautiful today and I couldn’t resist taking a few photos.
I found a few things, but not as much as I hoped I would. This little vintage table and chairs is so adorable, I couldn’t resist buying it. The old blue paint and the little decals made it especially appealing to me, and the gateleg table was too irresistible.
I bought this old daguerreotype, is that what they are called, maybe not? I don’t know much about them, but I thought this young boy was so cute. I love the old egg sign and the vintage folky bunny basket. Wouldn’t flowers look perfect in it! Finding this early Amish doll made my day worthwhile. Isn’t she just fabulous. I especially love her cape.
There was one last shop I wanted to visit on the way home. I also wanted to drive past my mother’s house just to see it again. We left a large brand new American flag in the living room. I was happy to see that the new owners bought a flag pole for it, and it was proudly waving in the breeze. As I drove along rt. 322, it became clear that there was a bad accident ahead and all traffic was detoured. I had no idea where I was heading on this road, but what a beautiful drive it was! I passed so many beautiful old restored houses along the way.
The road were winding and narrow at at once point I had to guess that I was heading in the right direction. I did managed to get a few nice pictures. This was such a lovely road. A beautifull old house was by the side of the road but I couldn’t get a good shot of it because there were so many trees in the way. I could only get the side of it, but isn’t the stone beautiful? Finally I got to where I wanted to be. I’m glad I had to detour. It was so worth it. I’m thinking I should start finding more back roads to explore.
All the goodies I found will be for sale in my store this week. So if you are interested, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
