Antique Shop

The morning that we were leaving Pennsylvania to head home, we planned on getting a very early start because we had already stayed a day and a half longer than we originally planned. If you have ever been to Lancaster or the towns surrounding it, you know that there are lots of great antique shops. So our plan to leave in the morning had already turned into the afternoon because we kept on making "just one more stop". Finally we had to get a grip and head home. We were driving for about a half an hour when we passed by a road and I had just caught a glimpse of something down that road that caught my eye. I told my husband that I thought we should go back but he was very adamant about not stopping anymore and getting home. I said..."but it looked like a really good one!" To that he turned around and went back!
We were in heaven...












About 90 minutes later we headed home and didn't make anymore stops!


The bad news...I don't remember the name of it or what town it was in. I took a business card but lost it.

The good news...I came home with some really neat stuff!

Hey Jennifer, I grew up not far from Lancaster. My aunt and uncle, who were huge antique fans, used to come visit us and make a weekend out of antiquing in the area. I thought antiques were boring and went to the pool with my friends instead haha. Ah, the stupidity of youth.

Glad you turned around! Do the shop owners not get nervous that you take photos?

I know where you were! I don't have the name or address, either, but when I take the back road to Lancaster I go by this place (and in it, if I catch it at the right hours). I'll be up there in the next month and will make a point of getting the info for you!
