Skiing and vintage finds = the perfect weekend

Last weekend I scored big time. That is with great skiing conditions at Mt. Snow in VT.  🙂  Seriously, it was the best skiing conditions I have encountered all year and I was there for 3 days!! Skiing powder with my family and best friends was so much fun.

Friday - gorgeous

Back to my other passion – vintage!  

On our journey home we always stop at Twice Upon A Time in Brattleboro.  This store has been one of my favorites for a as long as I have been coming to VT to ski!  To me, there is nothing better then hitting the slopes for a morning and then checking out the local vintage shops in the afternoon.

This store is always a must stop for me. You never know what you will find and I love that.  Plus it is HUGE! Expect to wander around for at least an hour in this three floor treasure hunt.

Vintage Vermont Finds

Where do you go if you need to find eclectic antiques? Vermont – Dah!

Well, it just so happens, I was away in VT for my birthday ski trip and got a chance to visit local antique hot spots. Skiing & antique stores = the perfect weekend!

It started off with some skiing at Killington. Although, four of their main lifts were closed (really Killington), soooo we headed to the bar early! When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade!! Right?!

After we listened to some live tunes and sipped on local beers, we headed out see what the Woodstock shopping scene was like!

Overall, we both enjoyed this this store! Shopping at antique stores, such as this one, is like a treasure hunt. You just never know what you will find!
After a day of skiing, drinking beer and shopping we were ready to hit our B & B to regroup for Sunday!

Sunday was a beautiful day! We started it off with a good long snow shoe hike.

Snow shoeing was certainly a blast, but, it was time to check out more antique stores! We stumbled upon The Vermont Antique Mall in Quechee on our drive out of Woodstock. This antique mall is huge! At every corner you turn there is something interesting to look at. We both had a ball looking around this store. I also scored a $14 leather bag! One of the best parts about this store – Cabot Cheese has a attached store with lots of cheese samples! A win-win, for sure.
