Ryan and I are in the process of looking for a house to buy, and I thought it would be fun to start looking at some furniture and get a feel for how we might want to decorate our future house. I’m also always looking for cool accents, especially something that you can’t find in mass retail.
When I was a kid, we had a country house in the Poconos, and my parents would drag me around for hours of antiquing (and here I am, years later wanting to do the same thing! I NEVER WOULD’VE THOUGHT!), so I suggested going there as a good start.
It was a nice drive, and we went to the very quaint town of Milford, PA. We didn’t buy anything, but the experience definitely gave us some good ideas for the future.
It’s also a cute town to stop in for lunch.
I think one of my favorite things to do over the weekend is to explore – drive around, go to places we haven’t been (or return to places we haven’t been in a while), walk around, take pictures, get coffee, and feel like we had a little mini getaway. Looking at antiques gives these road trips more of a scavenger hunt/quest type feel.
It was a fun way to spend the day. We’re talking about trying out some auctions houses soon, which I’m VERY excited for. I’ll keep you posted.
