off track.

Big news. So, I have had it on my list to check out a warehouse over near Bladensburg since the summer when I saw a mention about it somewhere someplace - I can't even remember now. It is only open on Thursdays and Fridays during the day and the first and last Saturday of the month. We either happened to always be out of town or couldn't make it over. Anyway, we finally did on Saturday morning and it lived up to all my expectations. Here's the story. It is the Off the Beaten Track Warehouse. It is filled to the brim with vintage and antique furniture and art and lights and more. The owner is a super friendly guy who bought the warehouse a couple years ago. Upstairs is a pottery studio and apparently a bunch of independent artists and studios. They occasionally open it up for an open house. It was awesome. We were very rushed and up against making sure that we got back for a train, so we didn't end up spending a whole lot of time but enough time that we seriously considered buying a set of chairs, a lamp that I loved, and also some old planters. We didn't end up buying anything this round...but sure to go back for another visit soon. Full disclosure, things in there were a bit overpriced and he definitely wasn't up for bargaining - but no doubt you can find some great stuff in there!
