"Back on the Road Again"

Greetings from Missouri . . . . . Joe & I got right to work when we arrived . . .  we talked to a man who is meeting us today in a small town just over the border in Kansas. So, even though we will be turning right around and heading east, we will cross the wide Missouri with the promise of a storeroom full of primitives just on the other side.
 


I love traveling through these small towns with their beautiful tree lined streets. . . . . .




 




amazing old houses . . . .




 of every size and design . . . 









and wonderful old stone churches on street corners every now and then. . . . . so very beautiful!



Then on to the purpose of this trip . . . . . .








You can imagine how my heart was racing at this point . . . . . .



But don't get too excited . . . . . . .




 John and his wife are furnishing their new home in Kansas City and can you believe this . . . . he let his wife shop first!!!!  She is really going to have some great things in her home, lucky girl!!!

John's prices were a little high for us anyway, especially since this was our first stop and I know the treasures that are waiting for us in the days ahead.


  

However, here are John and Joe moving things around because of course, I found something way in the back that I couldn't live without!!!


Why are the best bargains always hiding behind and underneath???




 


 We did come away with a few nice pieces and a free gift from John which we will pass on to you (whoever finds it first) . . . . Hey, if I have to dig for bargains, so do you!!!





So that's it for today, we have a lot of miles to cover before our next stop . . . .we'll talk again tomorrow with hopefully more finds!

Beautiful road trip. I would say your free gift was the bottle or the square box up top the cabinet.
