The little log cabin

IMG_0667    Follow Route 10 out of Newport, past Goshen and into Lempster, and you’ll find The Little Log Cabin – a farm stand, bakery, artisan’s market and antique store all in one building. It’s open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Totally worth the drive – you’ll find a little treasure you didn’t know you needed, and some really good coffee cake!

Get thrifty

Thrifting is not for the faint of heart, but it is great fun. I checked out a few stores for the summer issue of Kearsarge Magazine; one of my trips is below. If you have some time this summer, grab a friend and see what you can find!
