I have not been to an antique shop for a very long time. I use to frequent them with my best friend Marilyn because she loved them. Since her passing, I stopped going. So my sister thought we should venture into the shops especially this one. Wow, what a huge shop. They have two floors filled with all sorts of items from so many different times periods.
What to buy: I bought this letter coin purse that has a silver clasp that folds with a snap.

This wonderful historical building houses a unique shop that caught my sister's eye right away. They had lots of wonderful quilted items for sale here. I think quilting is a dying art and the skill has been passed down through my family. My great grandmothers quilted, my mom and my sister, my nieice and even I have quilted. So a store like this is neat to look at. They sold many Donna Sharp items such as wallets, purses, backpacks, baseball caps, curtains, bedspreads and more. I bought a purse that a treasure.

On my last trip here the wife and I decided to the touristy thing and get an old time picture taken. After a look around the web we found a few places and decided on Victorian Photo Studio. We were very happy with the picture and our experience.
They were very friendly and professional. Which was very helpful considering even tho we had called the day before to make an appointment they were running behind.
Victorian Photo Studio offers two types of pictures digital which just has you dressed in period garb and has the look of an old time picture, or wet plate. Which is a period accurate photo using the same "film" and camera that were used back during the civil war. Both come in a few different sizes and can be framed or not.
What to buy: If you are looking just for a picture in period garb go with the digital picture it is faster, and cheaper. However if you want the full authentic experience try the wet plate. It might take a little longer to prep for, take and proses but the results are pretty cool.
What to pay: Digital Package runs about $34.95. If you ask for just the 8x10 you can get it for $24.
Wet Plate Prices:
1/6 Plate $45.95
1/4 Plate $59.95
5x7 Plate $69.95
Which actually run a few dollars less then the other place in town that does wet plates.

If you make only one stop make sure you visit this establishment. Rob Gibson employs the same process used in the 1860's. The authentic camera lens Rob uses originally belonged to a Civil War photographer named Walzl.His work has appeared in movies as well as many documentaries.

At least by me I don't have any one stop shops for leather items so I always like to stop in when I come to Gettysburg.
The Wilderness Lodge Leather & Hat Shop has leather hats naturally but also belts, jackets, wallets, gloves, bandanas and pretty much anything else you would be looking for that is made of leather.
However leather is not the only thing you can get in this place there is also jewelery and other little nick knacks.
What to buy: Personally I like to see the wall of hot sauce bottles. There are so many different kinds you could easily spend 30 minutes looking through them all. Believe me they are not just novelty gag gifts, this stuff is hot.
Also one year when I went here they had leather roses I did not see any on my last trip I hope they did not do away with them.
What to pay: Leather is expensive so look to spend about what you normally would for it. However, they do seem to have sales. This trip they had wallets for $15.

These outlets were near The Country Inn and Suites outside of Gettysburg. It contained shops like Bass, Old Navy, Gap, Liz Claiborne, Easy Spirit, Oshkosh, The Children's Place and Pfaltzgraf just to name a few. It was great to check into the hotel, then run over to the outlet to do some quick shopping before our sightseeing began.

What to buy: Anything and everything discounted!
What to pay: You get a break on the retail price!

I'm gathering this place used to be called "shops of 63" because that's what my family refers to it as. It's a little village with mostly touristy items...there's a general store, a place to get lemonade and soft pretzels, a Civil War costume shop, t-shirts, books...etc.
What's nice about this place is there are also public restrooms separate from the stores. Hard to find if you don't want to buy something. Also, there are benches to sit on in breezways...very nice and useful when it's VERY hot and you've been walking all day.
What to buy: Every gift shop in this area has the same sort of thing: civil war stuff, amish stuff and even "Gone with the Wind" gifts.
The little stand with the pretzels is VERY good though and so is the lemonade.
What to pay: Depends on what you buy
