The town has a few restaurants and even an old fashioned ice cream parlor. On Saturday mornings, there is a farmers market with a few vintage vendors. We always get breakfast/coffee at Off the Rails http://www.offtherailelkhartlake.com/ which is a very small cafe across the street from the train depot.
Make sure to check their Facebook page for days open. They always have a nice selection of items and the store is always displayed so nicely. It has a Carriage House kind of feel which is why I'm probably drawn to it. Here's a side view. There is a small shed in back with more stuff. That's where I found a really nice two tiered table with a great price because I need to mend the one leg. Simple repair for a great table.
Down the street is The Red Rooster and a few blocks further along is The Shoppes On Mill Street. Both also have a nice selection at great prices. (One of my favorite shops that carries vintage clothing and jewelry was closed temporarily). Plymouth is known for the murals that are painted on the sides of many downtown buildings. There is also a cow statue that we just had to take a picture of.
Antoinette looms over the town. I just love smaller towns for just this reason. So much charm in one place! There are 2 thrift stores in the business part of town which are worth a stop. We found quite a few treasures at them. (Neat Repeats and St. Vincent de Paul) We stopped at a few garage sales and one was by a woman who sells at the Cedarburg Flea Market. It was fun shopping at her sale.
I know that today is the Elkhorn WI flea market, but Elkhart Lake is also so much fun for me. I really look forward to this trip which we usually make yearly. (Except that it signals the approaching end to summer vacation for the boys. Ethan moves into college next Saturday.) But, for today, we can just enjoy our time together.
Happy treasure hunting!
