warm smile on the owner’s face led me
to ask about the store. I was told that they
had just moved to this larger building. I
marveled at such a home-based business as
I traveled to the next stop.
Detweiler Woodworking and Poly
Outdoor Furniture is well marked from
the road. I felt as if I had left the hustle
and bustle of the outside world as I drove

Two stores on Route 608 drew my
interest, Morning Glories and Reba’s

selection of large and small statuary items
for the yard, as well as fountains, bird

sandwiches. So, I opted for the traditional
ham and cheese with their sharp cheddar.
How wonderful! I could get it just the
