Great day for antiqueing.....

It was a gorgeous day in the Ozarks and a perfect day for antiquing. We headed for Aurora where we had heard there were some cute shops. First of all, we stopped at a flea mkt. in Aurora and found some wonderful treasures. Judy, Brenda and I were all kind of thinking Fall & Christmas since it will be here before we know it. Leola's Fall Open House is scheduled for Sept. 11, 12 & 13.

The next shop we found was a great little country/primitive store called The Primitive Peddler. It's so hard anymore to find a shop that's just a one-owner and it's really hard to find one that is American country. She had a combination of antiques and reproductions and we all found several things we couldn't leave without.












Life has been pretty crazy for me the last couple of weeks but hopefully, tomorrow I can run to Leola's and work awhile. Also, I'll try to get some pictures taken of my "finds". I finally have a full garage but the time to get it ready for the shop seems to never be there. July has been busy at the shop, thankfully, so I really need to get in and restock. So many of our customers right now are from out-of-town so if you miss out, you don't get 2nd chances with them.

Love love your pics! In the summer, it just is hard to do EVERYTHING. I've been trying to stay in and get a few projects done, but the outdoors keeps calling me away!!!!
