On Friday, Tori and I set out on a treasure hunt around Shrewsbury, PA, a town just about 30 minutes south of us. We had been following a shop on Facebook called The White House on the Square, which is only open the first weekend of every month. So we scheduled a visit for February and anxiously awaited as we watched all of the fun goodies Whitney, the owner, was posting on her Facebook page. We also knew we could make a day out of it as there are lots of other fun little shops in the area to explore. So off we went, Starbucks in hand and Bruno Mars pumping on the stereo…
We were not disappointed. What a cute shop! Each room has several little vignettes set up so it’s easy to imagine the items in your home. Whitney refinishes furniture pieces and also makes custom signs for purchase. There are unique items all over the shop that she has found for her customers. She was telling us that she is responsible for about 90% of the shop’s inventory. The rest of the items are from other local artisans and shops. She often likes to feature floral arrangements from a shop just down the street called Rosemary and Rust. There is also a gentleman who supplies metal pieces and signs for her shop.
Tori and I both found a few treasures that we purchased during our visit. We are definitely looking forward to going back to see what new goodies The White House on the Square has next month. Whitney was telling us that the March sale will have lots of Spring and Easter items. Can’t wait to see what unique pieces will be waiting for us!
From there, Tori and I walked down Main Street and stopped in a few other antique shops. We were having fun just browsing and window shopping. As we headed back up the road, we knew of one more stop we wanted to make – Tumbleweeds. This shop is in a charming old barn with lots of characters. Their Facebook page says “Rustic-Vintage-Upcycled-Unique…This store has everything you are looking for!”. And it did!! I loved looking around this barn. I think I was “oohing” and “aahing” just as much over the building as the actual items for sale. The beams in the ceiling and the original architecture gave such a cozy feel as we browsed.
We left there without purchasing anything… HOWEVER, Tori took her husband back over the weekend because she couldn’t stop thinking about a bar that we saw when we were there. Needless to say, they will be picking the bar up on Wednesday. 🙂
We had a great day on Friday! We keep adding to our list of places we want to visit to treasure hunt, so stay tuned for more of our adventures.
