Charming Lititz

The Town of Lititz
As those of you who follow my blog know, Josh and I recently went on a trip to Southern, Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago. Our goal was to visit Lancaster and see if it was an area we might want to move to. We ended up finding the most charming little town just a few minutes outside of the city. While watching the "Lancaster" channel in the hotel room ( had a lot of good info on the city and it's surroundings!), I heard about this historic town called Lititz and thought that we must go see it. It ended up only being about 5 minutes from our hotel, so on Sunday morning we drove over for a visit. It really is the kind of town you could fall in love with.
Lititz Cafe
The idyllic setting is filled with tree lined streets, quaint shops and cafes, cobblestone and brick buildings, and friendly people. Josh enjoyed a cappucino from the cafe above. Then we decided to stroll around and get a feel for the place.
Lititz Shops
Since it was Sunday, almost all of the shops were closed...but I enjoyed window shopping instead.

I also love finding small towns with gorgeous old homes. I have a penchant for anything cobblestone or painted brick. The one below being one of my favorites...

After wandering down the main road for a bit, we veared off and found the cutest little shop tucked away in a parking lot with some other antique shops nearby...
Archaeologie Store Sign
Unfortunately, Archaeologie was closed...but I certainly enjoyed peeking in the windows and enjoying the beautiful store front decor. In fact, I enjoyed it so much...that this is the current "Vignette of the Moment" on my Romantic Vignettes page. Be sure to stop by to see the rest of the photos of this specially featured store front vignette!
Look at this stunning urn!

How I wish I could have gone inside to look at all of their vintage goodness up that table! I love it! Guess for now, I will just put it on my list of "things to do" when we return!
And I was excited to see the same bird cage that I have in my living room hanging in their window!

I hope that you enjoyed a little stroll through Lititz with me! And if you are ever going to Southern, is a must see! And if you get to Archaeologie before I sure to let me know how you like it ;).
