My New Yorker friend, Maria, was in town this weekend for an impromptu visit. She loves vintage as much as I do. Finally! An excuse to skip the laundry and pay a visit the town of Bellefonte in northeast Wilmington and try out my new Pentax K-7 DSLR camera (happy birthday to me!).

JPT CaningI'm going here if I ever need any caning done.They also carry depression glass.
Blueberry HillYou can't come to Bellefonte and not go to Blueberry Hill, 1015 Brandywine Blvd.
knobs and pulls- Blueberry Hill
Bellefonte CafeWe stopped for cappucino at the Bellfonte Cafe, 804 Brandywine Blvd., and unexpectedly got to hear some live rockabilly by Betty and the Bullets. Who'd-a-thought on a Sunday afternoon? Our food never came, but it was a fun time.
The bakery, Sweets to You, is across the street. We'll definitely have to come back.
