As I mentioned in my last post, I spent Friday and Saturday at my sister's house, which doesn't get to happen too often. We always have a blast together. Somehow, we also always end up grocery shopping together, so Friday after a junk food run, we watched Blue Like Jazz.
Saturday was the day that I started taking pictures (mostly because we weren't in our PJs, like Friday!) So, enjoy!
It was a gorgeous day, so first my sis took me to her "secret spot" when is a like park that overlooks the Susquehanna River.
Then we drove into Lancaster City, where they have eleven custom piano placed around the city for the summer. Melissa has played piano for a long time, so I convinced to play for about a minute! (Read more about the pianos here.)
We got to see some gorgeous spots near the Lancaster Central Market that just make me want to live in the city so badly.
We went to look around in the most gorgeous bead shop ever.
Had a bit of a tear-y moment here. Zap and Co was this amazing vintage store in Lancaster that I went in probably twice. I can't usually afford to buy anything from a vintage store, so I just like to spend time and look around, but in high school, I had a bonus check or birthday money. So, I had splurged and bought this amazing 1960's sequin beanie hat. (I need to show that off soon!) During my freshman year of college, my sister had texted me with the horrible news that the building and all of the gorgeous clothes had burnt to the ground. The store owner was injured and was in the hospital for quite some time. They are now trying to rebuild and get more inventory. (Read more about the fire here). You better believe that I will be there when they re-open.
There is also a store right across the street that is called Mommalicious. The have excellent vintage and the prices aren't that bad; just more than my college student budget can afford. But, I would love to come back to buy a dress for our winter formal, Madrigal.
We also, went to this awesome and huge antique store, where a bunch of different vendors could sell in one spot. We took this picture for one of my brothers, who works at the park and likes antique things as well. His favorite antiques are amusement park memorabilia.
Finally, we ended up at Rachel's for some Nutella hot chocolate and a banana, peanut butter, and Nutella crepe! Yummy!
It was a wonderful day to spend with my sister. She isn't all that much into vintage/thrifting, so I'm so appreciative that she would spend a day doing something, just because she knows I love it. I have the best sister in the world. Next time, we will have to do something you want to do, Sis!
