Getting Some Fresh Air

Untitled-1

After days of stuck-in-the-house-ness I was itching to get some fresh air. The cabin fever was a-gettin' to me so before I sat down to work for the day I went out for a stroll around town. The first thing I had to do was traverse the killer icicles hanging from our house. Check those babies out! I swear some of them are ten feet long. I actually fear for my life just a little bit every time I have to open the door.

My walk eventually led me to M0mmalicious and Smilin' Gal, my favorite two-in-one vintage shop in town. If I had a magic potion to make every dress in there fit me, I think I'd be in danger of going bankrupt pretty quickly! If you ever find yourself in Lancaster you must, must, must go. I promise you won't be able to walk out empty handed. I know I didn't! I found a couple of little things to put away until spring; a 40s carpet bag, a cute polka dotty skirt and a pair of big round sunglasses.

If you're not lucky enough to be in town you can still check out their websites (thanks for the links Alicia!):

That place is fabulous! I really wish I could stumble on a place that has that much vintage clothing!

I've been following your blog for awhile and until you mentioned Smilin' Gal, I had no idea you lived in central PA! I was born in Lancaster and grew up in Lebanon county. I've shopped at vintage stores in Philly and NYC but all of my best finds are from little shops in small towns.

Thanks for your great blog!

Those icicles would terrify me! They look like macabre death instruments...which they might very well be if they fell on your head!

Oh, to have such cool vintage shops near me...
