A Sunday Jaunt


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 caroleholt@comcast.net.

    What beautiful pictures! I just love the old stone homes in that part of Pennsylvania. All your finds are good ones, even though not as much as you had hoped. That little table and chair set is just darling. Thanks for sharing your shopping; I really look forward to your posts.

    I love taking the back roads instead of the tollway or the interstate. You never know what you might find. It is always an adventure and we all know that adventures keep life fresh and exciting.
