A Drive up the Coast

The Marston House: AntiquesThis weekend was heavenly…road-tripping through Maine, taking in an incredible farmers market (easily my favorite in the entire book) and a fantastic craft fair. The weather was cool and I drove with the windows down, basking in the coastal breeze. I wasn’t under a time crunch, which is normally the case when I am on the road, hitting event after event, so I was able to stop whenever something caught my eye.

The vintage notions were very tempting as well…but I was good, and just shopped through the lens of my camera! I did leave filled with inspiration, and a feeling that I will make Wiscasset a planned stop on my next Maine trip!
