We were showing some friends from another country the rural area around Charlottesville this last week. Of course we made a stop at Chiles Peach Orchard (one of my personal favorites). After getting a peck of peaches, some fudge, and a growler of Bold Rock Peach Cider we decided to continue our journey to Blue Mountain Brewery (another favorite!) for a late lunch.
On the way there we stopped at a fantastic antiques and “new to you” store that we had never been to before. The Greenwood Antiques & Uniques is a fascinating store to wander the aisles. Unfortunately it was almost closing time but the manager let us in so that we could see what she had for sale. There are many different vendors and they change frequently so there is always new items to see. You name it and it was in this store. Lamps, chairs, dishes, pictures, wall hangings, baskets, dressers, decorative wooden spoons, clothes, purses, scented candles, books, glassware, figurines – just to name a few of the items. Luckily our friends found several items they couldn’t live without so the manager was right to let us browse while she closed up.
There is a sister store – Rockfish Gap Country Store – just a few minutes from there. But as it was closing time we drove on by and promised ourselves we would take some time to check it out.
If you are looking for something to do September 6-8 and you like vintage and antiques you need to check out the Zinc Vintage Market at Misty Mountain Camp Resort. There will be antiques, furniture, decor, art, jewelry and more! Hungry? They have food trucks, coffee, wine, beer, hard cider and more. Listen to live music while looking at all the wares.
Plenty of interesting places to spend some free time on a Saturday afternoon – before, after or between sampling wines at the nearby vineyards of course!
Hope you enjoy!
