While Blair is in California, our mother and I decided to go on a spontaneous road trip to Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, Maine. One of our favorite stops is Antiques on Nine, just outside of bustling downtown Kennebunkport. Located in an old chicken barn, Antiques on Nine is filled with antiques (surprise!), reproductions and other complimentary products.
Around the perimeter of the building is a collection of signs, bar letters, vintage outdoor furniture and sculptures. I have an affection for typography and definitely could have made good use of a small moving truck. While browsing, several DIY project ideas hatched in my head. I can’t wait to share them on the blog!
Next-door to Antiques on Nine is a row of cottages that I fell in love with. Right around the corner from endless beaches and shops, they look as though they could be straight off a postcard from the 1950′s.
It’s amazing how quickly summer fills up with plans, but I hope that you can find some time for yourself to jump in the car, cab, or on a train and venture out into the world on a spontaneous trip of your own. You never know what you might discover!
Happy adventuring, Hayley
