lancaster roadtrip...#3 and final !

on the last leg of our trip
it was raining so we hit adamstown ~ the antiques capital ~ and all the malls !
they claim 1000 vendors in 7 miles...
and i think they are not liing !
here is just a small sample of the
goodies available


a pen vending machine ???
never saw one of these before...how cool

nice furniture


i love pink !!!
these girls sure know how to pack a mall space !!
yowee, that's  a LOT of glass

i fell in love with this little vanity hamper
never saw one of these either...and i love pink !


this was for giving kids haircuts back in the day
how cute !

we also ventured in to this shop........
they aparently are new...there were no "shoppes" the day we were there...
i think the flea is on sat and sun....but....

i never, never, never saw so much stuff in one place !!
(click the pics for a better view)
one not so huge building was packed with all this:


ok...how about this typewriter !!!




lots of typewriters...all out of my pricerange

golden books galore !








playing cards !

records !


after all that........we were very tired !~!!~ lol...
i had to go set up and sell at a show the next day.
might just be getting too old for this !

but oh such fun !


one last pic...

my dad has always grown tomatoes...
he grows a LOT of tomatoes...
everyone in town gets them from him....
but nothing like these we saw on the side of the road !
(click the pic to really see them)
they must sell to the whole county !!

that's it for this trip...
getting ready for a big 4th of july show in
ellwood city...

no roadtrip....
just work....
bummer

roadtrip #2

lancaster has a lot of amish !

they were having (an apparently) annual auction


an unbeleiveable amount of stuff



some nice, some not so much, but interesting

we didnt stick around for the auction,
they are about 5 tents, and a couple fields.
would be an all day affair i'm sure......

the countryside is beautiful there !
you just never know what you'll see

a friend from the prim forum turned me on to a guy
who sells stuff out of his barn
she didnt tell me how MUCH stuff he sells out of his barn !
what a pleasant surprise !


there was storm overhead at the time we were there,
and since they dont have electricity (amish),
it was rather dark,
but oh what an awesome place !!!
also, my camera died and i was trying to get some more pics
with my phone !
**
this guy is amazing.
he couldnt possibly even know what all he has...
such fun...we have to go back....
my truck was full (sadly) with my show stuff..
the main reason i was in the area
so i couldnt buy much...
but i did pick up a few goodies
and made a new friend..

if you are ever heading there,
email me and i'll hook you up !
