We left at the crack of dawn yesterday to go to one of our favorite Spring markets. It's in Amish country and it opens at 7:00am and is a two hour drive each way. The drive is glorious and goes right through small town America. A perfect trip for Memorial Day weekend. Except for the Trump signs but I won't ruin this post by going there.
The market is in a small town at the foot of the mountains.
This was a first, an Amish guy driving a tractor. I guess some Amish are now allowed to drive gas vehicles?
There were lots of vendors selling all sorts of crafts and antiques.
An Amish woman handling the cash!
This woman was buying rugs woven from old jeans and overalls.
There's always a great selection of plants and flowers.
A box of bunnies. I almost had to drag My Daughter away from them.
Sorry for the glare. These Amish guys were selling beautiful handing baskets.
A typical Amish house.
The drive alone was worth the trip. We were up and down the steepest mountains and our ears were popping all the way.
We saw so many people trout fishing.
You never know what you might see in these tiny towns. A BIG dinosaur in a front yard!
I brought home a large selection of succulents. And they were only 2.00 each! Such a fun day!
