My husband and I took a trip out to Adamstown, PA for a little antique shopping on Mother's day. If you don't know it, Adamstown is Antiques Capital USA. It's true. We visited the outdoor market at Shupp's Grove. The weather was perfect for wandering around from vendor to vendor. I found this milk carrier and pint bottles.
I found tons of vintage rulers and yardsticks, but controlled myself and only bought 5 rulers; they were a dollar a piece, how could I resist?
Our next stop was the Black Angus, which is my favorite antique place in Adamstown. They are open only on Sunday. I found these two little doll aprons that just tugged at my heartstrings. One is a brown "homespun" while the other is a brown stripy print. There were many beautiful quilts and even a pair of pillowcases, but with college bills looming in 2013, I resisted the temptation.
Our last stop was for lunch. We tried a new place for us, The Black Horse, which from the outside didn't give us confidence, but the food and atmosphere turned out to be great. They had a regular menu and a vegetarian/special diet menu. Lots of fresh vegetables in all their dishes. Yum.
