Road Trip to Lititz PA

Yesterday was the perfect day for a road trip.  Sunny, but cool.  Perfect Fall day for shopping in the beautiful little town of Lititz, Pa.  My friend Mimi and I set out early and made it there in no time.  So, as promised, here are pics of our day!

We decided to have an early lunch before walking around.  We ate at a lovely historic tavern called the General Sutter Inn.  The food and service was wonderful and it was just the perfect way to start our visit.
Afterwards we walked along the street going in and out of all the shops.

There were some great old houses on the street.
I just loved this one with it's gray door and shutters and pair of rockers too.
The reason for our trip was to visit the open house at Days Gone By Creations.  You can not leave this shop without buying something or maybe one of everything :D.  Mimi and I were in primitive heaven :) and Cindy, the owner, is such a sweetie.  It was wonderful seeing her again and she did the most amazing job on the displays and front window.
Here are just a few pics of the shop.  Yep.....drool......
My friend and former TDIP sister, Susan Burd of Country Crocks, was there too.  I just love Susan and always enjoy our chats.  I was excited to introduce Mimi to her.
My two buddies........
Here are the treasures I left with.....
Two sweet bee's wax stocking ornies, an 1803 candle called Cookies for St. Nick, smells unbelievable, and a primitive paddle.

We also stopped for a little refreshment at the local pub, Sturgis Haus Brewery.
I wet my whistle with a half pint of Krauses Haar.  A favorite of mine when here.
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing the pics of our visit to Lititz.  Cindy told us there is another open house in the Spring and I'm sure Mimi and I will make the trip back for it.
Happy Weekend all,
~Nan
