YorkeTowne Shoppe

I have posted a few times about my favorite shop, The YorkeTowne Shoppe. The owner is Pat Boyde and I just love her store. You know what I'm talking about. If you had an extra $100 to spend at any one store, everyone has their go-to place to shop. For me, it's here. It's only 8 blocks away. I thought I would share some pictures. Enjoy!

Canvases, lanterns and plates!

I hope that you enjoyed a peek inside my favorite store. She's located 902 3rd Avenue New Brighton, PA 15066. She's thinking about blogging. I told her how much fun it can be and I think she's considering it.

Oh and do you remember me telling you about the new indoor flea market where I bought my fireplace screen? Well it appears that Dana recognized me from my blog and commented that she sold me the screen! How great is that? Not only does she love to go junking she blogs too! Check out Dana at Cottage At Doe Hill.

Hi Julie! I would LOVE to spend some serious shopping time in the store for sure! Love your photos....

BTW...you are a sweetie and Thank You so much for leaving those flattering comments on my blog....I love Stevie Nicks too!...funny though...a lot of people say I look like Linda Blair...I hope thats when she OUT of makeup!! Ha Ha!~

Heidi said...

Looks like one fun place to shop Julie. Do you take an empty wallet to save yourself ~ LOL! I really love having scented candles in the house. I can't get Yankee candles here although I buy Bridgewater which is an American candle company that seems to be hard to find in your area. My favorite Bridgewater scent is called Spiced Cidre. What is your favorite scent?

Any store with the word "Shoppe" is bound to be a treasure trove!

Michelle said...

Linda said...

What a darling shop! I could truly spend serious shopping time there. I see why it's your favorite shop. Linda

Sandi said...

What a neat store. It's too bad there's not a franchise location around here!

joan said...

What a great place, love the Christmas display. And you just had to rub it in that Pittburgh beat us huh? LOL That's okay, I luv ya anyway!

BellaColle said...

Oh my gosh! I just love the store... I'd probably visit often if I lived near...

Marianna said...

Thanks for visiting me the other day and alerting me to Linda's post.

(clap clap clap)
I have been ready for Christmas since May! I could do damage in that store!

karlascottage.typepad.com said...

I'd shop there!

Dana said...

I've been to this store and it is very nice. I wish there were more like it around here.
thanks for the nice comments you lefton my blog.

melissa @ the inspired room said...

Ok, I just want to say that Kari and Kijsa must hire about 30 people to post comments for them because those girls have their name EVERYWHERE I go! I am not kidding! It takes me hours to visit my favorites, but invariably I get to one and there they are. And the next one, there they are. I thought it was just because there are two of them but good grief, they must have a team working for them. And I am going to ask them about that personally. LOL, they crack me up.

Eh hem, how great to have a wonderful store so close by! I would be in trouble for sure.

And you are being recognized by your blog? Oh, my! Now you've got me worried. I better watch my words because you never know who might be reading!

Happy Day Julie.


Flea Market Queen said...

Looks like a wonderful place...
I spied several treasures I think I need!

La Tea Dah said...

The shop is darling! I can see why you love it! And the Christmas music? Yeah! Less than 2 months --- I need to find my CD's!!!!!

Emilie said...

That IS a really cool store. It looks so old-fashioned from the outside. I love Yankee candles, don't you?
When I go into a store with them, I have to smell every single one. I like the food scents. ;)
Happy Halloween!!!

FarmHouse Style said...

Your favorite shop looks like one I would pick to be my favorite too. I am a huge Yankee Candle fan:)


Nancy said...

Oh, this shop is so wonderful. It would be great to see. Kristy and I might have to hunt it if she stays in New York and visits me. I have to see how far it is from me.

KJ said...

This looks like my cup of tea!


Cris said...

I love, love, love this store!!!! Julie, I wonder if you are getting my e-mails, pls. check your spam box. Thanks for sharing such beauty! I love crafts.

Sophie Honeysuckle said...
