Life is Good with Donuts and Cameras

 A 40-minute drive through southern Chester County horse country on Saturday afternoon brought us to a wonderful place that had everything--well, everything we're interested in anyway: fresh donuts, freshvintage, and fresh sandwiches.

After a crack-of-dawn outing to a garage sale had us back home, showered, and wondering what to do by 10:30 in the morning, we decided to take a little trip up to Highland Orchards in West Chester, Pa.

We knew they had apple cider donuts:

and we knew that freshvintage, owned by blogger Colleen Alison and her husband Chris, had just opened there:

The only thing we hadn't planned was lunch, but it turned out that there was a wonderful little deli right on the premises, where we bought some made-to-order sandwiches and some drinks. Dessert, of course, was a given--we dove right into the bag of hot donuts that we bought inside the orchard market.

But first we visited freshvintage, where we met Chris, who was really nice and very friendly.  In an odd twist, although I loved the way the store was decorated, I didn't buy anything--this time.

But of course Doug was like a moth to a light with Colleen's display of vintage cameras:

and there were two that he just had to have.

Now, I can't wait til this Sunday, when we go to Clover Market in Ardmore, where freshvintage will join dozens of other vendors for the day.

Maybe, the vendors will all hide their old cameras.

  1. Thanks for stopping by freshvintage! Sorry I wasn't there to meet you. We have even more cameras now, if that will tempt you to return...
