Sorry about the week-long hiatus. I wish I could say I was doing something really fabulous or on some amazing trip, but really I was doing boring grown up things. Like starting a new job. YAY!
But we did actually go on a little trip this weekend. We headed up to Bethlehem, PA for Musikfest, a week-long festival of music and food that was a yearly tradition for my family when I was growing up. We hadn't been for several years so it was great to go back where I could actually appreciate the music, enjoy the culture, and not be bored because there weren't any rides....
Plus a weekend with family, shopping, and an amazing consignment shop that we stumbled upon in little downtown Bethlehem was just what we needed for a weekend getaway.
Oh you know, just polka dancing with my mom.
Isn't my sister just the cutest little thing?
When we walked up Main Street, it was pretty hard to miss The Attic--not only did they have a girl standing out front handing out coupons but they also had racks of clothes and a table of cute jewelry set up out front. Obviously my eyes were drawn to an $11.00 blue polka dot dress before even setting foot in the shop, so I knew there was much damage to be done...
And boy, was I right.
Not sure about the "LEGWEAR" sign...but so much fun glassware and knick knacks.
See what I mean? This place was not only just fun to be in, but the prices were AMAZING. I think my sister got a cocktail ring for around one dollar. They had an amazing variety of vintage and name-brands all for so very cheap. I could have gone much more crazy, but I settled on that polka dot dress that I initially snatched out front--it fit perfectly and with the 10% coupon it came to about ten bucks. I'll take it!
The Attic is awesome, and they also have an online store which is excellent for me...not so much for my wallet....go check them out!
