traveling with SDAJ--- show opportunity and downtown in Wellsboro, Pa. Tioga County


Wellsboro is such a gorgeous community, still holding on to their small town main street retail, specialty shoppes and restaurants.
This past weekend my dh and I traveled to Tioga county around 2.5 hours from where we live in Elk County to this lovely town for a small venue.

SDAJ was at the Penn Wells Hotel in Wellsboro, Pa. for a Pennsylvania Wilds Artisan Trails showing for the Pennsylvania Forestry Associations 128th annual dinner--- YES their organization's 128th! 


At this wonderfully preserved Hotel a small sampling of PA Wilds Artisans were invited including  juried artisan Snuffy Destefano of Ridgway, Pa. with his burl bowls and SDAJ.


We also booked a room staying in this lovely landmark.

About 
taken from the website http://pennwells.com/hotel/about-us/

The Penn Wells Hotel, built in 1869, is one of Wellsboro’s most historic landmarks. The current building, which was restored in the 1920s, has 73 character-filled guest rooms of varying sizes and types. Our elegant Lobby and Mary Wells Dining Room transport guests to a bygone era where welcoming staff and friendly locals remain the norm. The cozy and inviting full-service Lounge sits adjacent to the Hotel lobby and offers a full selection of classic cocktails, beer and wine. With live music every Friday night, a drink or a bite to eat at the Lounge is a great way to wind down after a busy day of travel, recreation or business.

My husband Herb, Snuffy, Cheryl and I had a great time socializing with the Pennsylvania Forestry Association as well as being invited to dine with them in the Mary Wells dining room and Ta Brant Enos, who is our ombudsman plus keynote speaker for the evening.

I fell in love with a few of the older gentlemen, with their beautiful stories, one could not help it. There were so many knowledgeable and charming individuals to meet and greet throughout the evening, it was a lovely opportunity with sales to boot!

That night Herb and I visited a couple late night spots enjoying the locals and a band or two with then still getting up fairly early for breakfast.  The last time the family was here, shopping and sight seeing, the diner was too packed with no seating available.  We lucked out this trip slipping in before church let out allowing us to get a sweet table up front by the grill. Of course you all know that the grill is where all the action takes place.

Being a very visual person myself, I can not imagine preparing food tickets by listening to the wait staff reading each one to me one after the other.  I truly don't think she made any mistakes using this method, funstuff.

to the point menu, simple, a few of their own specialties

love finding parts of our past or grandparent's past especially, still holding their own

More buyer's markets and artisan venue opportunities will continue to be available through out the region.
