It may or may not be an advantage, but my job takes me on the road. When someone purchases a new ultrasound system from GE Heathcare I go to them and I teach them how to use their new system. I contract with GE so I sometimes go all over the country. However, this week my travels took me to Winston-Salem, NC.
I love the traveling and when I can work it out, I allow extra travel time so that I can explore or actually take the back roads. I am always pulling out my Atlas and looking for the alternate route!
Today, I finished early so I had time to stop off of 85N and explore Historic downtown Hillsborough, NC. Hillsborough is just west of Durham, NC. The interstate actually had signs that read "Historic Downtown Hillsborough". I have traveled 85 many times and always wanted to stop here.
I found the cutest shop right off 85 on the main drag, "FETCH". The address is 116 S. Churton St, but it is the street that is the exit from 85. The window dressings and outside adornment just begged me to enter.
The proprieter Karen was so inviting. She welcomed me and didn’t mind at all that I snapped some pictures of her lovely shop.
I LOVE these little historic downtown shops with the rear gardens! I can just see myself having a shop like this someday. The backyard garden will be chock full of herbs!
Karen was so sweet and we had a very interesting exchange. If you are EVER in Hillsborough, NC you must stop by and visit this shop!!
Can you see my reflection in the mirror!! I could just take this whole dressing mirror/table home right now!
OK, this was the tricky part! Karen had racks and racks of vintage fabrics, aprons, curtains, etc. I was able to hold my breath and resist, totally. Those of you that follow my blog know that I do NOT need any more fabric for my stash. I have many, many stacks of vintage pieces of fabric. It’s my passion!!
I throughly enjoyed visiting Karen’s shop in Hillsborough, NC. Call her at 969.644.0206 if you can drop by sometime. It is SO worth the visit!
