When I have the time (chuckle) or if I need to get away from my family, and steal a moment of peace and quiet, my favorite thing to do is get a cup of coffee, and walk around Olde Engine Works Market Place, in Stroudsburg.
The building itself is amazing. There are a bazillion vendors selling antiques, and collectibles, and vintage items.
I purchased a desk there a few years ago, and a little red chair. The red chair had a match, but I only bought one. I often think about that poor lonely red chair, and even returned to find it, with the hope of reuniting it with its mate, but no such luck.
There are canisters, and cookbooks, and salt and pepper shakers, and lunch boxes, and old toys, records, and old school fur capes, and books, and huge pieces of important furniture.
I could go on and on, and the place actually does. Aisle after aisle of finds.
Grab some coffee, and have a quiet stroll. The music is groovy, and no one bothers you. It is quiet, and magical.
My favorite little escape.
