We do not go into the city of Lancaster very often.
In fact we kind of have to work ourselves up to it
thanks to the traffic and what seem to us like crowded
conditions. That is likely due to our home being in a very
rural setting and our total love of elbow room.
(However, lest you think we are country bumpkins,
we do know our way around the city.
I only said ya'll and ye-haw onct...maybe twice!
Nobody said nothin' bout my
milking boots nor straw hat!)
Back to seriousness now....
sorry for that little diversion.
Our friend Denny is the owner of this
most adorable little shop.
Fab Fashion is THE PLACE in Lancaster
for your next handbag or bling.
Denny does all of his own purchasing
and has an amazing knack for
choosing things that make you
go "ahhh! pretty!".
One of these days he is going to have a
web site and then the rest of you will
get to enjoy it too!
I'll let you know when that happens.
Denny occasionally allows our friends Lindsay and
Emma to fill in for him. This was the case on Saturday.
We found them to be very helpful and efficient
when Chelsea found a pair of earrings to buy.
Emma actually found her inner model
for this photo.
I just had to show you some of the bling
that is available.
Did you notice the purses behind Emma's head?
So many handbags...some of you would just be
in your glory.
I am not a bag-a-holic so I just think it is cool....
but I know people who would never want to leave.
After visiting with the girls
we were off to Central Market.
It was crazy busy.
Too much so for me.
However, I was happy for our friends
the Shenk's who have a stand here.
Hoping it was a good day of sales for them.
Warren's extended family were Market People.
He learned to make change and deal with
customers in a market in the city of York.
Warren's Dad grew up in a family that worked
a farm and took their produce to market.
It is in their blood.
We used to go regularly and visit the
cousins and friends who tended market when
we lived in York County.
But, we have gotten out of the habit.
I think that Georgia and I will likely
go back to Central Market again but on
a week day.
Not far from the market you will find this
It was built to be all about music.
However, the economy went south at
just the wrong time and it did not make it.
Millersville University to the rescue.
The campus is now extended to the city.
I don't know how this works for them....
but I am glad the building is in use!!
We were planning to get breakfast in town
but a quick step into the Prince Street Cafe found
no available tables so we skedaddled back
to our van and got out of there.
We just breathe better in the country.
But, it was nice to visit.
