    • Saint Paul, There is just something about Saint Paul that warms your heart. Maybe that's what it is... We make up half of the Twin Cities but Saint Paul holds the heart. It's not really the incredible places in Saint Paul although we have great places like the Mexican Food at El Burrito or the ice cream at Grand Ol Creamery it's really the people here that make this city so great. We build connections and deep roots. We invite people in and we feed them., Midwest

Flea Market Flip, Lara Spencer has been to Brimfield to buy items that she turns into one of a kind items.
We had our first and deadly Tornado on June 2, 2011, which some people are still trying to recover.  It hits about 7 towns and I believe it first hit in West Springfield Mass.
Please crash our town or one of the surrounding towns. You will love this part of the East Coast.
Thanks Nina, East Coast

Our end of town is the Brandywine Townhome Association with single family units. Generally peaceful, we are near everything we need: stores, schools, gas stations, churches, and of course, home improvement stores!, Midwest
