Indeed, downtown Lansdowne now has a new antiques store. They still don’t have a website setup (perhaps I’ll drop them a line and offer my services) but in the mean time call (484) 461-7770 for store hours, or e-mail the store owners at [email protected] for more information, or stop by the store at 12 S. Lansdowne Ave. Lansdowne PA.
The Mansfield Brass Quintet will be playing its annual evening of traditional holiday music on Saturday, December 19, 2009 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.. Consisting of two trumpets, a trombone, a tuba, and a French horn, the group begins caroling at the corner of Mansfield and Madison Roads, proceeds down Madison, continues up Walsh to the Manor’s Christmas tree and finally down Mansfield to Madison ending its tour of the Gladstone Manor in the cul-de-sac at the intersection of East and West Windermere Terraces. The group stops to play under the Gladstone Manor’s historic street lights and at the Gladstone Manor Holiday tree. This year, as last, the Mansfield Brass will be joined by carolers.
Lansdowne is now considered a Classic Town. According to the Classic Towns site, Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia is an initiative of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) designed to foster the growth of the region’s older communities by promoting what makes each community a wonderful place to live, work, and play.
Yesterday, we celebrated Cinco de Mayo at Mission Burrito in Lansdowne, PA. Great food and music, including an owner who actively posts specials and announcements on Twitter. Today, I stumbled across the menu for Sycamore. Got to love more food choices in down town Lansdowne.
