It’s finally the weekend. So we, me and my 2 young assistants, filled our water bottles with lemonade and headed out to the local farmer’s market to start our day of exploring locally. We decided to get out of the house and shop Rt. 13 by heading North to Pierceton, North Webster and Syracuse – all in Kosciusko Co. Indiana. The goal for this trip was to gather ideas, inspiration and fresh air. Kind of a real-time, get-off-the-couch Pinterest date.
First stop was right in our backyard at the very local North Manchester’s Farmer’s Market which has started a few weeks earlier than usual. Not too much on the produce this week, but a great selection of plants and baked goods and rhubarb. If only I liked to make pies? The girls scored a chocolate chip banana bread – good road trip food. They even shared a bite or two with me.
North Manchester’s Farmers Market
The weather was perfect for a drive, a little overcast, but the rain held off. Now you have to understand, I’m driving with two 5th grade fashionistas who get bored very quickly. I wasn’t sure if they were really going to get into the antiques, vintage stuff and who knows what in the small towns we were headed to. And I was really feeling the urge to explore and hang with creative peeps. And you know what? We had a perfect day. A little bit of eye candy for everyone – antiques, jewelry and hipster collectibles for me – a video game, resale clothes and strawberry crepes for my two lovely assistants.
We covered a lot of ground (North Manchester, Pierceton, North Webster & Syracuse – Indiana), took a lot of pictures, talked with each amazing shopkeepers and bought a few treasures. Usually, I would write more and share more images from the day in my blog, but today I’m trying something a bit new. I’m sharing links to all the places we visited below and a video/slideshow from our day:
