Our field trip on Presidents Day was in Avon, Ohio. It was Barb's turn to select the location.Her husband was raised in Avon and she has traveled the region with her job but has not had a chance to check out some of the local shops. We first went to eat a delicious light lunch at the Tree House Gallery & Tea Room. It is located in the historic Alten Casper House and features wonderful lunch and desserts. We were lucky and could get seated but it is recommended that you make reservations For more information call 440-934-1636. It also has a gallery featuring antiques, collectibles, folk art gifts and wines. The building is beautiful. After perusing the shop you can go around the corner to visit some of the stores located at Olde Avon Village. We then jumped in the car and went to Jameson Homestead Antiques. It features a 1906 farmhouse and barn with antiques, primitives, and architectural elements. They have several special events for 2012 such as Aunt Teak & Uncle Junk June 23rd and June 24th and also includes the city wide garage sale. Another event is the Autumn Antique Festival September 8th and 9th. More information on these events and store hours can be found at www.jamesonantiques.com. The entire historic region is called French Creek and details about all the local antique shops can be obtained at www.frenchcreekdistrict.com.I hope you enjoy the pictures of our latest adventure!
I love how they used an old headboard for their sign.
