Other Shopping at Shipshewana

Hello readers.  I hope you aren't getting tired of my posts about our Dear Jane Retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana.  I'm back home but want to share a few more photos with you.   I like posting photos from the retreat for those that weren't able to come this time, for those that have never been there, and for those die hard quilters who sat in the sewing room most of the time and actually sewed!

This is the Kitchen Cupboard.  It is in the same building as Lolly's Quilt Shop.  I go here every day to get a latte'.

Jo-Jo's Pretzels.  The big attraction here is the pretzels that are made right on the spot.  It is just heavenly warm dough.  They not only have regular pretzels, but they will coat them with cinnamon and sugar or parmesan cheese.  They also have soup and sandwiches, and these pretzels are the best.

The Lang Store sells quilts, pretty stationery and figurines among other things.

The Cuddle Store in the basement of the Davis Mercantile Building.  This shop is full of Cuddle which looks and feels like Minke.  

The Farmstead Inn where we sleep (a little bit) and sew (sometimes).  This is the room we pass through on the way to the sewing room.

Another little room at the Farmstead to sit and sew and visit.

The Cinnamon Stick over in Middlebury, Indiana.  This is the Vera Bradley room.

I had never been to Cinnamon Stick before, and it is a cute shop.

Everything in town is decorated for Christmas.

This is the sewing room.  There is some sewing going on, but it looks like most people are out shopping or eating.

Thanks for visiting today!

  6. What? Quilting retreats are for sewing? LOL I would be doing just what you are doing. Maybe a little quilting just to say I got my moneys worth;-) But I would certainly come home with a few more pounds and probably an extra bag of stuff.

    Thanks for sharing, it all looks great. So many temptations.

    blessings, jill
