My husband thinks I am crazy, since my normal route takes me way out of the way...but it's much prettier than the easy way. It really only takes an extra few minutes, but when you go "The Classic Preppy Way" you pass all kinds of pretty houses and amazing historic sites.
Norwood is one of my all time favorites. It belongs to the family of a man we knew in Charlotte.
He visited his grandmother at this house and has all kinds of wonderful stories about it!
Farmville, Virginia Home to Longwood and Hampden-Sydney
Great shopping on Main Street! The trip to Farmville is worth it even if you only go to The Ivy Trellis. It's PREPPY PARADISE! Lilly Pulitzer, Vera Bradley, Tervis Tumblers....and lots of monogramming!! It also has the nicest salesladies....and I treated myself to a gift that was inspired by Miss Janice's post of March 28th. (It's pictured at the end of this post!)
Penelope's is fun for casual jewelery and clothing .
You can't miss Sleeping Bee across the street, either.....Look at all the fun and fabulous rooster items.
Home with my treasure from The Ivy Trellis! Miss Janice's lemonade looked so good, I couldn't resist!
