Antiques, Great Coffee & Maple Surprise

On our latest road trip, we traveled up scenic Route 5 North from Brattleboro to Westminster, and on our way out of town, we found a little gem for those who love to browse through antique shops and appreciating forget me nots, this is for you.millies

This gem is called -Millies” forget me not Antiques, and if you love browsing for hidden gems, this is for you.  You’ll find Millies at the end of Elliot Street in Brattleboro.

From there we made our way to Putney.

Fogbuster coffee they had brewed was super fresh & piping hot, (if you’re a coffee lover like me that’s REALLY important) so this gem gets 5 coffee stars. After turning left to park at the general store, we continued up that road just to see what was up there, and what we found was a delightful surprise!  At the end of the road, tucked away at the end of a drive is a hidden gem filled with Maple.

After satisfying our sweet tooth with maple, we continued up Route 5 North to Westminster, where we pulled over and made some new friends, rte5horseyfriends
