WERE QUIRKY!!!

Well, well, well....I always knew we were quirky!!! Here in New Hope, the town is very quirky with straight and gay citizens living in harmony... with artist from all walks of life, a huge transsexual community , drag queens, bikers, witches and your eclectic type. And the playground consist of art galleries, restaurants, pubs, new age shops, witch craft shops, sex boutiques, upscale clothiers , and antique shops. Just recently when the Capital Street Duo was here we stopped in impromptu to a art show, where a new acquaintance Marcus was serving bar clad in just underwear!!!!!! purrrrrrr.  But right after my good friend and blogger pal Kailyne was here in Auguast, she came across this article from Travel and Leisure Magazine of the America's Quirkiest Towns. And looks like two more local towns, one of which I live in, and another within 20 mins of the Casa have made the list!!!!.........
 
No. 5 Lambertville, NJ
To folks in this quaint town along the Delaware River, the real weirdos may be the motorcycle riders and Witches across the bridge in New Hope, PA. Still, these Jersey denizens—artists, gardeners, and perhaps actors gunning to play General Washington in the next historical reenactment—get props for their serious attitude toward antiques. The four-story People’s Store has been selling treasures since 1832 (when such things weren’t old). For people-watching, go to coffee and gourmet shop Lambertville Trading Company, where the java is old-school, too: iced coffee served with frozen cubes of coffee and a full range of bone-china mugs.

I'm here to tell you the coffee at Lambertville Trading Co is phenomenal and the People's Store has some of the greatest finds around at give away prices!!!


No. 14 Doylestown, PA
In the heart of history-rich Bucks County, there’s a fine line between quirkiness and extreme quaintness: cutting-edge souvenirs include the locally grown sachets from the Peace Valley Lavender Farm. Doylestown also ranked well for its fairs, such as the annual Polish Festival, held at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa (a Black Madonna sometimes seen as a subversive), and the crowd-pleasing Beer Fest, held at the town’s former estate, Fonthill Castle. Readers also applauded Doylestown for brunch: try the Purgatory Plate (poached eggs over slow-cooked sweet onions, plum tomatoes, and Grana Padano cheese) at local favorite Domani Star.

I must say, I really love living here.
 
 
And then imagine my surprise to find one of my favorite summer playgrounds made the list at #2........

No. 2 Provincetown, MA
With its history of artists and theater types—Eugene O’Neill, Al Pacino, and Barbra Streisand all cut their teeth here—Provincetown has always provided a colorful contrast to the otherwise seersuckered Cape Cod. For a suitably quirky place to stay, check in at the Salt House Inn, where each room has a “wall of curiosities” featuring vintage art or interesting objects found along the beach. The longtime gay-friendly destination also impressed readers with its seafood shacks (such as the Red Shack, which does Mexican and Moroccan lobster rolls) and cool souvenirs, such as a photo of your aura, done by Whaler’s Wharf psychic Carolyn Miller
 
Does this make me quirky, or just a quirky lover?!?!?

  6. I can say this doesn't surprise me. I have never seen two towns with such a unique feel and population like New Hope. Lambertville and Doylestown. Just a cool chic locale.

  7. Very cool! I know I have never seen anything like it. Although the witch stores sort of scare me. I also notice how the boys there loved your "quirkiness"
