Books, quaint shops, thrift store shopping, and flowering plants are all the stuff that dreams are made of.
All of them can be found in Manchester, Vermont, a cute town that makes a fun day trip.
One of the coolest book stores around is Northshire Bookstore in Manchester.
There's even a used section which always makes my heart sing.
Northshire sells a lot of what-nots, too, like pear and other-shaped candles in lots of colors; purses; funky clothing and greeting cards.
It's a great place to browse, read, relax and have fun.
Manchester is a neat Vermont town and if you visit there in summer, the flower displays will make you smile.
