In early February, Mike, Maggie, and I organized a weekend trip to Colonial Williamsburg to coincide with their “Fashion Days” event and the Mini-Market hosted by Burnley and Trowbridge, Redthreaded, and Dames a la Mode. Maggie had never been to Colonial Williamsburg for a costuming event, and I thought it was time to change that. Maggie brought her husband Doug and daughter Elena along, and it was a great opportunity to spend more time with them too.
Our first activity was to check out the exhibits at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum. They had a small fashion exhibition on (smaller than I had expected, unfortunately). I was more taken with the exhibit of folk art portraits we saw.
Our Friday dinner was at one of our favorite restaurants, Blue Talon Bistro.
Saturday was a bit of a whirlwind. Mike, Maggie, and I started off the day with massage appointments at the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg. I had been thinking we could swing by the Mini-Market after that, but we ended up taking longer at the spa than I planned for. Between that and needing to get ready for the afternoon activities, we ended up not having time. We did grab takeout from the Cheese Shop, which was delicious.
In the late afternoon, we hosted a costumed stroll through the Historic Area, which was a ton of fun. I will post about that separately.
Then we walked around the Historic Area, stopping in the Tailor’s Shop to see Mike.
We had a lovely weekend!
