The Market Place

Last weekend we stopped in a place that I've never been to before. The building was originally an old train station. Now it is home to the Meadville Council On The Arts. Inside is like walking through a craft show. My kind of place.

Outside they had a farmers market. I loved the look of the building

Another glimpse of a little piece of history.

Tomorrow I'll show you what I found upstairs.

  2. I love strolling through places like that - seeing old structures filled with interesting treasures and an open air market or two...maybe a sidewalk cafe and a little people watching ... very nice!

  4. That is a great looking place. We have places sorta like that down here in the South that are old train stations. They are used for farmer market goods. What a neat idea to have a craft place. Bet you liked that place Ann. Take care.

  6. This building looks nice. Great that they restored it and found another use for it rather than tearing it down.

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my story! You're first again!

  11. We have an old train station that looks very much like this, but they have turned it into restaurants. Now I can't wait to see inside!!!

  12. What a neat place, Ann... I love it when they take an old building and preserve it in some way. I've seen other old train stations like the one you show here that have been restored for other uses. NEAT.

  20. I know this is a tangent but I love farmer's markets. Crafts, I am not so crazy about (except yours of course) but I could spend hours at a farmer's market.

    Have a terrific weekend. My best to Duke. :)

  22. Is it just me or is shopping in historic buildings better than in modern ones? I look forward to seeing what you found!

  26. I really enjoy farmers market with all the wonderful fresh fruit and veggies. To add art and crafts would just make it so much more interesting.
