Rain, rain, go away

It’s been raining where I live since Sunday. And not a nice soft drizzly rain either. The downpour kind. Not only is my basement flooded, but I’ve had a sinus headache and stuffed-up nose and just feel crappy. I don’t usually do this but on Monday I gave up and went to bed. I sipped juice, read and did embroidery, but mostly I napped. There’s nothing like a summer cold to knock me flat. Anyway, that’s why I haven’t posted since last week. I’m feeling better today and hope to be fully recovered soon. Because...

This weekend is the annual linen/button theme weekend at Shupp’s Grove in Adamstown, PA. (Weird music warning if you click that link) They have a flea market every weekend but this is a special one where vendors focus on textiles and sewing-related items. This will be my third year and I always find tons of stuff. I especially love the Amish and Mennonite women who come in from the surrounding areas to sell feedsacks, which are just about my favorite thing. I really should do a post about them one of these days. Not sure whether I’ll go on Saturday or Sunday—that depends on whether it’s raining. Did I mention that I’m sick of this weather :)

I'll be sure to pack my camera and post some pics next week. And tell you what I found!

I am feeling sort of sad that I did not take advantage of this market when DD#2 was living in Lancaster County for seven years.
Hope you find some great things there this weekend! Sounds like fun.

Thanks for blogging about this! I live in Chester County and this sounds like the perfect place to go this weekend!

Nothing but rain here either, for DAYS. A good excuse to stay inside and make things though! :)

Sorry about the flooding! My sister lives a bit south of you - and flooding is imminent there as well. Lots of rain where you are!

We, on the other hand, are *hot* and dry!
