My friend Leslie and I took a road trip just before the new year. There were no new quilt exhibits for us to visit so we decided to go antiquing instead. We drove out the PA turnpike to the Morgantown exit and explored along Rt. 23. The first stop was an antique and collectables (yes, that's what the sign said) store called Treasure Hill. It was deceptively large and full of all kinds of stuff. This the kind of place where you have to hunt to find some treasures amid all the clutter. Sort of fun though. I picked up some vintage linen dish towels with a pretty green stripe and a small wash board.
We had a delicious lunch at Squire Side restaurant in New Holland. We decided to celebrate the new weight watchers points plus program by ordering sundaes for dessert.
We made two fabric related stops. The first was at a store called Obie's Country Store. If you are claustrophobic, don't go in. It is jammed from floor to ceiling with fabric and it feels like it will fall down and bury you at any moment. If you like the fabrics from the 1970's and novelty prints (e.g Eagles football) this is the place for you. They also have about 10,000 potholders, made from said fabrics, for $1.00 each.
Our last stop was Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, PA. My family loves the horseradish mustard and salsa that they sell. I love the pickled beets too. Zook's fabrics store is there too. They have current quilting fabrics, arranged by fabrics lines, instead of color. The prices are about $2 less per yard than around Philadelphia. They also have a remnant table, where I picked up some repros for $3/yd.
