WE LOVE POTTERY WORKS! If you’re looking for a really cool way to spend an evening, need a new birthday party theme idea, or simply need some time to yourself in a vibrant space, head to The Pottery Works in historic downtown Lancaster.

The paint-your-own pottery studio is owned by Marcie Natale, who opened the shop 14 years ago in 2003. Marcie also owns sister stores The Gem Den and The Bead Works also located in downtown Lancaster.

Perhaps the coolest part about The Pottery Works is their discount calendar. Every day they’re open, they offer a different type of discount, like a Ladies Night where all pieces are 15% off for ladies, or lunch specials where all pieces are 20% off. You can pick up one of their monthly calendars at the counter. From piggy banks, to knick knacks, to full dinner sets, to cookie jars, we are positive you’ll find something you’ll be excited to paint—and within your price range!

BROWNIE POINTS: You can BYOB, BYO snacks, and pieces are available for pick-up just one week after you complete them! They also offer painting classes.

There are so many things we could say about BUZZ, located at 38 West King Street. BUZZ is a little to-go cafe window, with a full espresso bar and a menu that changes with the seasons.

The purpose of BUZZ is simple. Get your coffee, your breakfast sandwich, or your salad or lunch sandwich to go. It’s really quick and super painless! There are so many secret little elements about BUZZ that we want to share with you, too! Did you know that by following their Instagram (@buzzkingst) you can get 5% off your order by saying the daily BUZZ word when ordering? Did you know that they play recordings of live music every single day? Did you know they deliver from 11am to 2pm within radius? Did you know you can pre-order online? Did you know that Michael Sirianni, the owner of BUZZ, is one of the nicest and happiest human beings you’ll ever meet?

BUZZ is the little cafe window right outside of the beloved Aussie and the Fox, but they are a separate entity.

The Keppel Building is finishing up their big project, which we’ve sure you’ve had your eyes on while embarking through one of the most popular blocks in Lancaster City: the 300 block of North Queen. Centered at the heart of Lancaster’s vibrant and urban core, you will experience historical charm meeting modern comfort—where they collide to create a fresh and sophisticated living experience.

Each one- and two-bedroom apartment features modern architecture, stylish interiors, and high-quality amenities. Prices range from $865 to $2375 per month, offering unmatched comfort and convenience. They even have two commercial spaces still available! Keep your eyes peeled for updates.


This is a project between Hometown Property Management, PPM Real Estate, and Zamagias Properties.

The chill is coming, and it’s time to bundle up the most precious of all: our children!

Bellaboo is stocked and ready in both their physical store and online! Bellaboo is a huge fan of Obermeyer Ski Clothing and Outerwear, and they are fully stocked with everything from snowsuits, to jackets, to gloves, to hats, and scarves. Obermeyer was established in 1947 when Klaus Obermeyer made his first ever ski parka—and they have been committed to innovation, technology, and quality ever since. Nowadays, Obermeyer produces some of the most high-tech ski clothing known to man. Bellaboo stands behind this brand and their quality products! With Obermeyer clothing and outerwear, your children will forget they’re cold—they’ll be able to focus on snowball fights, building igloos, and sledding through the fluffy snow.

Bellaboo, both in the shop and online, features Obermeyer’s sleekest and colorful designs for kids, and in multiple color options.


Obermeyer Snoverall Pant
Made of 100% polyster mini-twill with HydroBlock waterproof breathable lamination and DuroGuard DWR, these precious snoveralls will keep your child warm and comfortable out in the blustery snow. They have reinforced seat and knees, a reflective zipper pull, and fleece-lined hand warming pockets, too! Other features include: reinforced inseams/hems, double layer reinforcement, “I-Grow”™ Extended Wear System, an elastic waistband, heavy-duty YKK zippers, and water-resistant powder cuffs.
Available in four (4) colors, sizes 1 through 8.


Obermeyer Averee Knit Hat
How cute is this hat? Not only is this 100% chunky knit acrylic hat aesthetically pleasing, it’s also fully microfleece-lined. A little pom-pom finishes off this adorable hat! Fact: children lose more heat through their head than adults, so it’s very important to keep their noggins nice and warm!


Obermeyer Gauntlet Gloves
These gloves come in sizes X-Small to Medium. With a reinforced palm, thumb, a zippered heater pack pocket, and even an integrated nose wipe (!!), these are an essential to keep your little one warm while they build their glorious snow castles. The integrated heater pouch pocket allows you to add chemically enhanced heat packets, which are a must on cold days. These gloves are lined with highly breathable microfleece fabric, which is used to create a quick reacting breathable lining while carrying the thermal advantages of fleece insulation.



Obermeyer Trina Jacket
The Trina jacket uses exclusive HydroBlock® Sport 10,000mm waterproof/breathable technology. It has a removable hood, shaped seams for fit, and premium insulation to assure ultimate warmth. This jacket also features the exclusive ‘I-Grow’™ Extended Wear System, which has built-in technology to increase sleeve length by 1 ½ inches. Comes in sizes 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8!

These are just a FEW of the incredible Obermeyer brand products that Bellaboo carries.
