4th of July Tradition {Dancing Dog Antiques}

Our 4th of July Tradition - The Dancing Dog Antiques | Travel Like a Prince Blog

I love traditions – even if they border on the unusual! My family has had a lake house in northeastern PA for almost 30 years ago, and I have literally spent all of those years up at Elk Lake for Independence Day. Over time our family has developed another annual event. Part of our 4th of July tradition is to head to Dancing Dog Antiques about a half an hour away. So sometime around July 4th, we pile into the car and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way to rural Lakewood. Take a peek at what we found this year!

This post is not sponsored and is born out of a love for antiques, tradition, and all of the vintage treasures I’ve found over the years. 

Our 4th of July Tradition

Dancing Dog Antiques – Lakewood, PA

the outside

Even though it’s rural, an accurate GPS will take you straight to the barn filled with all sorts of goodies. Signs pepper the way back off of the main road, and the stately barn is there to greet you. I also love that there is an American flag front and center to mark the entry.

the inside

Of course, the variety of vintage finds inside is why we head out there. From art and architectural pieces to furniture and collectibles, we literally never know what we will find. Just take a peek at all of the antiques throughout! Oh, and the name Dancing Dog pays homage to the fact that the owner, Catherine, found a vintage “dancing dog” card from a children’s game in a piece of furniture…and the rest is history!

isn’t that a fun place??

I’m so glad we found Dancing Dog years ago. I have to walk through again and again and again because I always find something new with each round I make throughout the store. Until next July 4th, Dancing Dog! I can’t wait…
