What a wonderful time to visit Lancaster! One of my very favorite things about coming to this city is Lancaster Central Market, the country’s oldest farmers’ market, in the heart of Amish country, chock-full of regional food specialties. Check out the “chow chow” and fresh fruit and vegetables sold throughout, Zig’s Bakery’s handmade scones, S Clyde Weaver’s amazing meats, cheeses and dips, and the Lancaster Salad Company where they toss fresh ingredients to make the best salad ever.
Whenever I come out to Lancaster, I try to drive out to the cute little town of Lititz. Here are my recommendations:
You must stop and get a homemade pretzel at Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery. Visit the always beautiful and serene Lititz Spring Park. Bring your pretzel here and just sit on a bench and enjoy the view. This is also the home of Lititz Welcome Center and Train Station.
My fave diner in town, although there are several great places to dine, is Tomato Pie Cafe – known for (what else?) their family recipe of Tomato Pie! Deliciously seasoned red tomatoes are baked in a flaky pie crust, covered with a rich cheesy topping! OMG… it’s what I get whenever I visit Lititz.
Wilbur Chocolate Store is also not to be missed. This is where the “original” chocolate buds (before Hershey’s kisses got famous) are made. And since the quilt show in Lancaster is held in March, it’s the perfect time to stock up on chocolate Easter gifts for your loved ones!
But make sure you plan to set aside some of your shopping dollars for our Laga Handbags booth and please do not forget to mention our Laga Handbags Blog Appreciation Offer and let us show you how much we do value you being on our mailing list!

Since we have never been to New Hampshire or its surrounding areas, we don’t have any recommendations of places we love. But we’ll be checking out Trip Advisor and trying some of their recommended attractions!

Paducah, KY – April 18-21
Immediately following MQX New England, we will be making our way down to the biggest and best quilt show in the East: AQS QuiltWeek Paducah! And, of course, that’s the reason you will find Laga Handbags here!!!
**Please Note: We Have Moved! We are no longer in the Pavilion … you will now find us in the Expo Center! And we do NOT have a corner booth this time so it might be a little more difficult to find us but if you have some trouble, remember that we will have an ad in the Show Book!!

What a wonderful time to visit Paducah! Quilters and others alike will also enjoy visiting The National Quilt Museum, take a stroll along the river to enjoy the flood wall “Wall to Wall Murals” and maybe even get a glimpse of the Mississippi Queen River Boat as it sails by. And do enjoy a Night with Ricky Tims (musician/quilter) at the Carson Center on April 20.
As far as dining goes, Paducah does not disappoint in its variety of restaurants and eateries. Some of our faves are Flamingo Row (ask for Crash because she’s the best!), Tribeca known for its amazing Mexican cuisine, Kirchhoff’s Bakery which is open mainly for breakfast and lunch and features highly recommended Weekly Specials, JP’s Bar & Grill (same owners as Tribeca) which has live music and features Happy Hour from 5-7pm every day.
There is also lots of amazing shopping opportunities all around town as well so we know you will have a great time!
We, at Laga Handbags, would be so pleased to have you come visit us in Paducah to attend this fabulous show and to help support us as we endeavor to continue our work with and for our beautiful and talented artisans in Aceh. When you do, please mention our Laga Handbags Blog and our Free Gift offer exclusively for those of you who are on our email list!
Since 2006, Laga Handbags has been a source of hope for survivors of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami, the most deadly natural disaster of our lifetime wherein over 285,000 lives were lost.
Laga Handbags was formed solely to provide help where help was desperately needed. And now, nearly 12 years later, we are so thankful that daily life has somewhat returned to normalcy, in part, due to our efforts there.
We continue to provide income and education, and to establish empowerment for the women of Aceh province after such devastating loss. Whether it be in our workshop, in village co-ops, in existing factories or in their individual homes, the women (and men) who make Laga Handbags and Accessories have received, and will continue to receive, our support so that they are able to maintain a better life than how we found them.
Thank you so much for your faithful support as we work to make a difference in the world. We would absolutely not be able to do what we do without YOU. And we appreciate your help so, so much!
