A Peek Inside The Tweed Weasel
I was driving down the road in Schaefferstown the other day and saw the most unique shop with a catchy name, The Tweed Weasel; and just had to peek inside. Set inside a beautifully restored 19th century barn, this gallery features original hooked wool rugs, floor coverings, original fabric dolls, fruit and vegetables and ornaments, all created by owner, Tish Bachleda. She is recognized by Early American Life Magazine as one of the nation’s top traditional artisans. Imagine that, right here in the Lebanon Valley! As I strolled through the shop, there were even more primitives, painted furniture, reproductions, plus home and garden décor. What a find! It’s obvious she specializes in finished folk art, textiles and antiques. But additionally, Tish and her husband Mike work together to produce folk art and pottery. What a great stop for specialty, one of a kind gifts made locally. (It’s so important to shop local and support our neighbors.) See some of my favorites photographed. What a lovely day in Schaefferstown. I do suggest a call first to make sure they’re open and not temporarily closed due to a special event. You won’t regret it.
