A unique shopping/food and fun adventure featuring 37 off-the-beaten path businesses, hand-picked for their uniqueness. Set up like a home or garden tour, you’ll travel place to place, in your own vehicle, enjoying all the special free things (refreshments, games, gifts, demos, workshop tours, make & take projects, etc) the businesses have planned for you.
Your ticket is valid the entire time—do what you can in a day or take 16 days—it’s up to you. Collect tickets to play the shop & win game and enter to win over $1000 in prizes. Plus, each place has given you a valuable coupon. Although we won’t tell you the names of the businesses ahead of time (that’s part of the fun secret!), we will tell you the types of places you’ll visit— unusual home, garden & gift stores housed in restored stone mills, bank barns and historic homes, an alpaca farm where you can interact with the animals, produce and plant farms blooming with beauty, farmer’s markets and gourmet food & treat shops with plentiful samples for tasting, a local pottery, an amazing winery, a jewelry store, art and artisan galleries, a country quilt & fabric shop, a few, specialty shops, a new cafe, antiques, vintage, upcycled and more!! There really is something for everyone!
The stores are located throughout Berks County but if you follow our path you will never travel more than 15 miles between places and most are closer together.
