Shipshewana Day 2

Today was a day of mixed blessings. It poured down rain nearly the entire day. The folks with a rain gauge said we had nearly 4 inches today and there's more forecast for tomorrow. On the positive side, the shopping was wonderful and the sewing room opened.

The is about 1/3 of the sewing room and girls are just beginning to get things set up.

Just outside is a beautiful sitting area with a gas fireplace that really takes the chill out of a damp day.

I love the little Amish buggy in the corner.

My first shopping stop of the day was to Rebecca Haarer Antiques. She has one of the best collections of antique quilts, tops and blocks for sale in the Midwest. This is the rear section of the shop. The front is filled with Old World Christmas ornaments and other special treasures.

Then I was over to the Davis Mercantile. Three floors of unique shops and restaurants. I always make a stop in Sarah Davis Ltd. to check out the jewelry, purses, jackets and home decor items they carry.

Lunch is usually a hot parmesan pretzel from Jo Jo's Pretzels. I couldn't even guess how many pretzels they make and sell in a day. Everyone who comes to Shipshewana has to try a pretzel or two in their favorite flavor. Tomorrow I might try the cinnamon sugar.

I made two trips to Lolly's Fabrics today. I haven't spent any time fishing in the fat quarter boat. Maybe tomorrow. I'll see if I can take some pictures of my fabric purchases for you to see.

I also made a couple of stops at Yoder Department store. They have 12,000 bolts of fabric there along with clothing, shoes (got a new pair of Crocs), tablecloths, towels and on and on. That's only one side of the building. Tomorrow pictures from Yoder's and hopefully the rain will stop so I can get pictures of the town. Until tomorrow............

    I must have sent a piece of the reply already. I am thrilled to have your site to visit while you are at the retreat. I loved the pix of Lolly’s and of the Farmstead Inn. What fun you are going to have…It is Saturday, so you all must be sewing along madly.

    Thanks so much for sharing, and the pix are great!
