I feel that Shipshewana is a pretty frequent blog post title.
This time I was going there with 2 friends from work.
I taught them how to quilt and talk about Shipshewana all the time so we finally made a plan to go.
We drove the back roads down and it took about 3 hours.
We arrived at the Davis Mercantile at the same time as a gigantic bus filled with women.
They were all going in the first floor door and I knew the bathrooms are on the bottom floor so, after 3 hours in the car, we raced down to the bathrooms.
We beat the crowd!!!
Next was to the resin furniture shop where resin bird feeders were the purchase of the day.
My friends bought many for their friends and for themselves.
We finally got out of there, brought the feeders to the car and went to Little Bit of Lollys.
I totally forgot to take very many photos.
After fabrics were purchased we headed off for a pretzel at Jo-Jo's Pretzels.
Here is what I bought at LBOL. All the fabric there is discounted.
Here is my friend Judith, eating her first Jo-Jo's pretzel
We then headed off to Lolly's where I purchased a few things, but not too many.
The one on the right says "Stitch".
After that we headed to the other shops in the Davis Mercantile.
There is a huge tree right in the middle of the building!
Here are all three of us on our shopping extravaganza.
I picked up these FQ at LBOL. That sewing machine bag was too cute to pass up.
I love Vintage Home.
Those note cards were adorable and look like my Mosen.
This was what the trunk of Robn's Pilot looked like just after the time spent at the Davis Mercantile! We still had not gone to Yoders!
That gray bag on the left was my cooler.
I made egg muffins and Judith brought a coffee cake for our "breakfast" on the way down.
Then I packed sandwiches for our lunch and everyone else brought stuff to go with lunch and snacks. We had a picnic outside the Mercantile before heading down to Yoders.
After we were rested and refreshed we headed to Yoders Department Store.
We spent about 2 hours here!
Judith finished first so went to sit in the rocking chairs in the hall.
I joined wanted to join her but there were no more rocking chairs left.
Cow seat it was!
These were the things I purchased at Yoders.
Aren't these foxes adorable??
Seems like I am now a fan of fox.
I don't usually buy Thirties fabrics but could NOT resist these kitties.
I can use the purples in baby quilts and the red actually seems to go with several other lines I have. The mint is always a good idea. HA!
Some people, bought a lot more than I did, LOL.
After we went there we headed to Yoder's meat and cheese shop
for a few items before heading home.
That's another reason to bring along a cooler, for meat and cheese purchases.
Sadly, the fry pie lady was closed.
Next time I will have to go there first!
What did you do over the weekend? Maybe you have some fun shops to recommend?
