Volant part 2

Today we'll take a walk down Main Street in Volant
First stop, the Volant Mill Winery. Actually we decided to stop here last rather than carry any bottles around with us all day long. In the end we didn't even buy any.

Such an inviting little shop

With a name like Attic Treasures, there's got to be some great things in here

Santa had just arrived a half hour before you reached this place and it was packed. We did find some neat ideas and cool treasures in here though.

I just loved the decorations in the front of this shop. Especially that  bucket.

What a neat way to display some candles.
And there is still so much more to see but this is all for today.

That is adorable!! I love the cranberry accent. So, what did you buy???

Catherine said...

This little shop looks fantastic! I love little stores like this ~ they are always full of sweet little treasures. I will be waiting to see what other lovely surprises you have in store for us! :)

Have a nice evening Ann!

Surrounded by all that cuteness! I love going to places like that. It's so much fun!

Julie Harward said...

I loved it all...and I want to go too! ;D

Sandee said...

How fun but you are right about that bucket. I would never have thought of something so clever. Right on the money with all those cranberries. I would have loved to poke around these places too.

Have a terrific day. My very best to Duke. :)

Ahaa.. I suspected there was a winery in there somewhere... :)

Country Mouse Studio said...

wonderful looking place and I'll bet you had a great time there.

BeadedTail said...

Looks like such a fun place to visit! We don't have places like that out here, at least not that I've found yet.

Erika said...

I have seen that cranberry candle thing before. I think it is very pretty.

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

I can see why you had such a great time. Very inviting.

Shinade said...

Ann this place is just wonderful. I could get lost in there and just stay forever.

I love the what the cranberry idea. What a great place. I am just going to have to go there some time!!

Have a terrific night and hugs for Duke too!:-)

That looks like a really fun place to visit. I would actually enjoy walking around and visiting the shops.

marie said...

What a great bunch of buildings ~ all warm and cozy like! Even the winery looks cozy. Where is Volant, PA?
The bucket of candles is a great holiday look.

Jean said...

Awww...this gets me into the Christmas Spirit. Cheers!!!

Ginny said...

Thanks for visiting my blog, Ann. Are you a follower of Sandra's? Your blog is great, and you are such a good photographer!! I wish I could visit Volant Mill! What sicks out to me is the wonderful checkerboard chimney! Your card is exquisite, my crafts look awful compared with yours!

Duni said...

Aaahhh...more goodies! The floating candles is a great idea. I might try something similar for my home :)

FishHawk said...

If not crack, then wine. Okay, I am starting to get the appeal of the place. Although, I have never really appreciated wine all that much, but I understand that many do.

Russ said...

Great to take the tour with you. I am a little disappointed we didn't get any wine. I bet you got some great goodies.

Sandra said...

awesome shots of the doors and windows. i would love visit this place. thanks for the tour.

Miawa said...

Beautiful little place to visit, I love it. I love "quaint" and that is what I see here. Great pics too

Out on the prairie said...

Fun finds, and a cheery place.

Ann said...

Lin, believe it or not I didn't buy all that much

Catherine almost all the stores are old houses turned into stores. I love it

Sheri yes it is fun, I want to go back :)

Julie I think it would be fun to take all of you with me the next time I go

Sandee I thought of buying some of the star candles but they were a little pricey in my opinion but I'm going to see what I can find around here and try that

livintheblues but of course :)

country mouse studio I sure did

beaded tail oh too bad, they should have a place like this everywhere

erika I just loved it. I want to do something like that

sharkbytes yes it was

shinade it sure is and I could get lost too

tahtimbo, I was surprised at how many men were there. my husband hates that kind of stuff

marie, it's just north of Pittsburgh Pa half way between Pittsburgh and Erie

Jean it did me too

Ginny thanks for stopping by and yes I am one of Sandra's followers, I love her blogs

Duni I think I might try it too

fishhawk yep, add wine and you've got a winner. Actually I very rarely drink at all but if I do I would prefer wine over other things

Russ aw sorry, but my friend said she never even finished the bottle she bought the year before so we just passed on it

Sandra you're welcome, glad you liked it

Miawa quaint is a very good word to describe it,

out on the prairie I would actually like to explore more of the surrounding area one of these days.

Marg said...

That is such a great looking place to visit. Love the candle deal. So much Christmas stuff, must have been great to see it all. Too funny about doing the wine last.
Take care.

Grace said...

How did I miss this last night? I thought my brain was a whirl-a-gig today - must have started last night...I'm so confused!

Anny said...

This is such a beautiful place to be... i wish we have places like this here. Thanks for sharing the experience with us Ann. Looking forward to more pictures :D
