We are so excited to introduce you to Abigail, the newest addition to Keys to the Attic. Abigail just moved into Fishtown, and she and I both come from Adams County located in South Central Pennsylvania.
For those of you who don’t know, Adams County is the exact opposite of Philadelphia. Outside of Gettysburg, the area is total country and farm land – corn fields, orchards, horses, cows, goats, sheep, chickens … you get it.
Every now and then, when I get a little “city’ed out”, I head home and stay at my second home, The Altland House. This is where Abigail and I met. She worked there as a server and bartender. We quickly became the closest of friends. When I was home last October, Abigail told me that she wanted to move to Philadelphia. She also told me that one of her former roommates lives here. When I asked her where Paige lives, Abigail said East Girard Avenue. What??? As it ends up, Paige lives one block away from Keys to the Attic!! What are the chances of that?
To make a long story short, Abigail has since moved here and is now my neighbor. This is a win-win-win for everyone. She is now helping me out with the store and my life, and I absolutely adore her. My favorite story to tell everyone (and this is no exaggeration) is that Abigail and I had the same teacher in high school (Gardy Lawrence) … I just had him exactly 25 years before she did!
So, next time you’re in Fishtown, please stop by Keys to the Attic and meet Abigail!
