Volant Village Shops

My shopping trip yesterday was to Volant which is located in Pennsylvania half way between Erie and Pittsburgh. I heard about this place over a year ago and have been wanting to go but Wade being the shopping enthusiast that he ISN'T I knew that I wouldn't be able to thoroughly enjoy it unless I found someone else to go with me. My day finally came, I found someone who was equally as thrilled as I was about checking the place out. VICTORY IS MINE!

When we arrived we were greeted by this friendly little fellow. He was sunning himself on a picnic table and I had to get a shot of him. I found out from someone else who I saw later taking his picture that he's a regular and hangs out at one of the shops which is actually a huge barn. How cool is that? Later while we were shopping in the barn this guy was also doing a little browsing.


Here are just a few of the pictures that I took while walking through the town. I love this place. I want to go back.


My favorite picture from the day has to be this one. This sign just cracked me up


I did buy several things but I'm going to keep you in suspense until tomorrow. I haven't gotten around to taking pictures of my purchases yet.

I wish I lived closer to you because I would have definitely went on that shopping trip with you. I love shopping the cute little places. They have so much character. You would never see such a precious regular like Mr. Kitty at the big mall!

Ann said...

Lin, Yes the Volant greeter, I love it :)

PJ it was amazingly fun, I could have spent all day there, and tons of money

Sheri oh yeah, so much better than a mall. All the stores just look like regular houses from the outside, or like the one, a barn.
