The Chester Publick House

On June 1st, after the craft show,
 we had a late lunch at The Chester Publick House
 
The food was great and the restaurant is decorated with
lots of antiques and has a very long and interesting history.
 
 Established in 1810...

The Publick House offers all this...
 
 and newly renovated lodging as well.
When the owner saw me taking pictures, came out and intoducded himself.
 
 He described in detail the newly renovated rooms...
I would have LOVED a tour.
 
This "pressing machine" was in the lobby,

 along with this washing machine,

and this antique cash register.
 
After we ate, we strolled around Chester for a bit...
 
All the shops had cute and unique names...
 
"Perfect Treasure"

"Once Upon A Table"

"Winky's Pet Boutique"

 

It's a great little town where you can buy lots of things you don't need,
but really want!!

  2. Hey Debbie! The hubs looks fairly loaded down with shopping bags. You really shouldn't let him loose with money like that!
    Posted a second post this week with your encouragement in mind. Probably would have stopped blogging without you. No joke.

  8. What a fun town. I liked what you said, " It's a great little town where you can buy lots of things you don't need,
    but really want!!" I think that is a profound thought.
    I could see that there was so many things I could bring home.
