Building Character in Lancaster County, PA

I just discovered a new building of shops and I'm thrilled to share them with you! Not to mention that this will make a great activity for a girlfriends getaway, but we’ll talk about that later when I mention how perfect the Adamstown Inns & Cottages are for these weekends.

Okay, back to the stores now... Downtown Lancaster has a warehouse, called Building Character, with 30+ shops. All under one roof; you’ll discover arts, collectibles, jewelry, clothing, gifts, photos, and furniture. Many of these stores emphasize recycled products and green ideas. Building Character even has its own line of up-cycled furniture, Salvage Chic. Using old furniture and recovered pieces of architecture, they create new and eccentric furnishings. These stores will amaze you with the creativity of the artists and I bet you’ll even be able to find a gift for that person that is so difficult to shop for!

If this already has you eager to pack your bags,just wait, because it gets even better. Every 
third Friday, Building Character partners with downtown Lancaster during their music Friday celebration, and hosts Ladies Night Out. From 7-9pm, ladies can enjoy dessert samples and champagne as they browse shops. Feeling tired or had a long week? No problem! They offer chair massages, hand scrubs, and manicures to refresh you! You probably won’t believe me when I tell you, but it gets even better because all of these treats are FREE!

With all the money you’ll save, you can stop by the Prince Street Cafe, or the ice cream shop next door, before heading out of the city to a quieter vacation home. Adamstown has 2 cottages and a vacation home that are perfect for girlfriend getaways. With multiple rooms, a common living space, and kitchen, this home away from home will fit all your needs. Relax in the hot tub, curl up by the fireplace with a good book, or play games with your best friends. Call today to book your weekend extravaganza, because I know you’re as excited as I am about exploring the shops at Building Character!
