Warkworth : Camp Ho-Ba-Chee

I took a trip to Warkworth, Ontario with my mom on Thanksgiving weekend. It was a beautiful day, perfect for a mini day trip! Our destination was Camp Ho-Ba-Chee, a delightful shoppe filled with vintage goods & handmade accessories (and handmade dog sweaters, too!). Friends of mine opened the shop just a little bit ago, a dream come true for them! I am so thrilled for them, and for the rest of us who get to partake in the wonder that is Camp Ho-Ba-Chee! Seriously awesome shoppe for vintage loving girls like me!
I brought Grace along, as she does love a good road trip and the owners of the shoppe are extremely dog-friendly (they do make lovely sweaters for dogs, afterall!). Grace does not, however, like to shop. She would rather eat treats and be on the move.
Here are a few snapshots from my time at this lovely stop in Warkworth:

{what I brought home: cute vintage doxie planter & antique shabby chic soap dish holder}

What: Camp Ho-Ba-Chee, a wonderful place full of vintage & antique & handmade things
Where: 18 Main St., Warkworth, Ontario and Online
Who: the loveliest of shoppe owners, Lesley & Robin (and Alice & Maggie, the store dogs)!

It's worth a boo, this delightful home away from home! :)
I adore the treasures I brought home with me.
with joy,
Caren
