Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Edenton, North Carolina

It is official.  I am in love with this little town on the sound, 70 miles south of good ole Portsmouth.  I headed off with bike in tow and found my new favorite spot in the whole, wide world.

I love the expression on King Frog's face.  I love used bookstores in general.  The wonderful thing about this one is that the books are displayed and organized just as though they were being sold in a retail bookstore.  Tidy, non-dusty, and lovingly placed.  I bought three.

Also wonderful was the availability of a sugar-free latte

I seriously want to own this store and fill if full of antique linens and the refurbished Victrola cabinet I found discarded on a trash heap.  More on that when I finish it.
Here's an adorable clock.  The clock has not been placed there to look retro.  It was placed there to look modern and became retro and hip.


I loved the colors and the scroll work on this commercial building:

This Victorian gingerbreading looked like lace to me.

And the lovely gardens

But wait, there's MORE!  (in the post below)

Thanks so much for the shout-out for Edenton's Garden of Readin'! I'm the owner, and I make a conscious effort to make it attractive & "new-like"... so many thanks for noticing! My husband & I moved here about 4-1/2 years ago & absolutely love it. Thanks for visiting, purchasing & blogging!
