A Sunny Day in Roanoke

It really doesn’t get any better than this—a sunny fall day walking, visiting, and shopping in downtown Roanoke, IN.  I am pinching myself that our store, Trove, will soon be part of this beaten path. 

 

 Traffic control in Roanoke, IN. No need for a traffic sign that changes colors!

Some of the sights of the village on Saturday mornings in the summer and fall—the Lion’s Club’s sausage/egg sandwiches (I usually smell them before I see them!), the yoga class letting out and succumbing to those sandwiches, Amish farmers selling home grown produce, Grandma Sue’s pies, La Dolce Vita’s fresh made crepes (today’s version was peach or strawberry), apples & apple cider, peppers every color of the rainbow from another local farm.  Top that off with the local shops being open—Joseph DeCuis Emporium, Moose & Mollies for gelato, Paper Moon for gifts and home décor, Crestwood Gallery’s latest fine art offerings, Peggy French-Deal’s studio open for business.  The list is longer and I hope to feature my fellow retailers and town characters in the future.

 

 Fall Farmers Market on Main Street.  The apple cider is amazing and the baked goods tempting.

 Next door neighbors--the Coil Factory which features Crestwood Galleries and its small town service with big city sophistication.

 Joseph DeCuis Emporium--the perfect spot for lunch and to pick up items for dinner!

 Moose & Mollies for more than gelato--lunch and old fashioned candies too!

I ended my trip to Roanoke with a quick trip to Two EEs Winery to pick up a bottle of my favorite red and my favorite white.  A perfect way to end you visit, I must add!  800 Degrees portable wood fired pizza oven was just pulling up as I left.  The activities in Roanoke were just beginning.
