perfect thing for a sunday afternoon

i have a favorite antique-y spot in KC, naturally. It's 4 floors of cramped & creaky stalls in a fabulously shabby old furniture factory. and it's just 2 blocks from the fabulous farmers market, previously mentioned. sunday afternoon we decided to go poke around...as it was a perfect day for it & we needed a family outing.

lookit this! it was a set of hats & a uniform shirt for a long disbanded TWA baseball team. Very fabulous,...love that someone saved it.

plastic everywhere, from plain to multi colored. stacks & stacks.

a floor patch..

who wouldn't want these?!

bright & fun

clean & sophisticated..

something for everyone.

these are what we took home.....

one more great little vignette...

and Cooper even found something he liked!

Not hard to do at the Riverfront Antique Mall. Ask for Donnie, his booth is the best. And if he's not at Round Top, Walnut or Brimfield, he'll help you find just what you are looking for.

Fun. At least I can do a "virtual" shopping trip with you. Rose's was good this month. Come to do the Buffalo shops with us one day soon.

Have you ever been to "Uncommon Objects" in Austin? Sue and I spent some time there when visiting my mom once. Talk about stalls and amazing stuff (!!!)
It is well worth a "look-see" if you are in the neighborhood.....
miss you......xo Jone
