Elsewhere goes by many names, including "living museum" and "thinking playground." However, it's easier to grasp what the erstwhile thrift store is all about via a video tour. The space brims with artistically curated clutter—from animal knicknacks to a floor-to-ceiling, cyclone-shaped statue made of dolls. Members receive special discounts on tickets and other surprises at Elsewhere's 6th Annual Fundraising Extravaganza, The Last Great Winter, on Saturday, October 11, 2014. Mission: To creatively repurpose objects from the past through storytelling, visual art, and other disciplines. The curators host an array of resident artists who help them do just that. Size: In stories? Three. In objects? Innumerable. The building's contents were amassed by the thrift store's original owner, Sylvia Gray, who shopped at Salvation Army and Goodwill twice a day. Eye Catcher: Before you even get inside, you'll probably notice the three rope-and-wood swings hanging from the eaves. Permanent Fixture: The fabric workshop. It's stocked with bolts of fabric in myriad colors and patterns, just like the inside of any quality rainbow. Don't Miss: The resident artists share a huge dinner with the public at 7 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Let them know you're coming 24 hours in advance, pitch in $5-$10, and they'll save you a seat.

Old Salem Museums & Gardens whisks visitors to the cozy streets of a reconstructed 18th-century Moravian town that encompasses 100 restored and reclaimed buildings and expansive, pristine gardens. As they stroll through the 90-acre homage to early Americana, visitors can interact with hands-on activities, such as the German paper-cutting art of Scherenschnitte or the colonial tradition of libeling a governor with accusations of actually governing. Old Salem's horticultural marvels include the Miksch Garden—a living illustration of Moravian subsistence farming—and the Family Gardens of Salt Street, which demonstrate the innovative practice of seed saving. In addition to year-round attractions, special exhibits rotate through town, celebrating momentous occasions, notable people, and game-changing presidential pets. After traversing the grounds, visitors can peruse souvenirs at a number of gift shops or sidle into Winkler’s Bakery for a piece of renowned Moravian sugar cake.
