So after the first half of my trip was over and a whirlwind 2 days, it was time for a little alone time spent doing what I love to do most: hunt for treasure.
Just outside of Gettysburg, if you head east on 30, you’ll find store after store for antiquers and junkers like me.
I was not very good about taking photos. I was too busy shopping. But some of the places I went, in case you’d like to go as well, are: D & L Treasures (pictured above), Sensenig’s Furniture Barn, Black Rose Antiques & Collectibles in Hanover and about 3 to 4 other places along the way that I didn’t write down.
One of my favorite stops was to a hidden gem in Dillsburg, PA called Country Collectibles and she had IRONSTONE!
Diane of Country Collectibles knows how to display. It’s something you either have or you don’t and she’s got it. I had to walk through her store about 5 times to make sure I saw everything. You know the kind? Things hidden in nooks and crannies and under cloches . . .
Unfortunately for me (but fortunately for my wallet), I was driving our Dodge Charger so I was very limited on what I could bring home, but I was bound and determined to fill it with what I could. I brought home 6 pairs of shutters, 2 side tables, a 3′ antique photo, 2 farm baskets, 2 corbels and about 4 new pieces of Ironstone. It was a good day!
My only regret about this trip was that I didn’t make it down to The Old Luckett’s Store. I guess that just means I’ll have to make another trip. Who would like to join me?
