    Zooks is probably the largest store, but since they are all on the main drag, and within walking distance of each other - I usually visit all of them!!

    If you are going East on Route 30 and pass the big mall, about 1 mile (I am a poor judge of distance) there is a place called Dutchland Quilt Patch. They have gifts on the 1st floor and fabulous fabric on the second level. It is on the left hand side of the road. There is also several other shops in the ares (not fabric) like woodworking things etc. Enjoy your trip. Also if you are up around Lititz there is a place called Weavers just outside of Litiz on Route501 north. They have excellent prices. Marge

    Oh if you are there on a weekend/Saturday drive the back roads for yard sales. Many years ago I was there and found a lovely vintage blue and white quilt, I didn't buy it and always wish I had.

    Ya know, all of you who want to go with her, we could plan this out for a couple of days next summer. We could meet each other and shop and get a group rate on a good place to stay and eat Amish food and quilt and quilt and quilt and quilt...

    wvdek, I don't know where you are in WV, but I do know it's 5 hours from Parkersburg, WV to Philly, and Lancaster is at least an hour closer, so only 4 hours from Parkersburg. Quite close, really! :D

    I wanna go too (whining and sulking with my head down and hands behind my back, bottom lip stuck out).

    Next year- a trip- that's cool. I'm about 2 or 2 1/2 hrs. from lancaster. Easy road trip for me. :)

    Most of the Amish stores are closed on Sundays and since Monday is a holiday they might not be open then either. Just wondering?? You might want to call ahead and make sure. Marge

    Zook's is always top of my list whenever I'm in the Lancaster area. Country Store is across the road from Zook's, maybe a block or two awat, kind of right across from that big parking lot. Zook's is always less expensive but Country Store has lots of batiks at good prices.

    I think this trip is going to be a big bust. No one is open on Sunday and that is the only full day I will be there. I am not finding too many that I can visit.
