We're on the go to St Jo

April 20, 2009

After Miss Frenchie's on Friday night, another group of my friends and I headed to St Jo to Rusty Chandelier and Jessie James Antique Mall.

If you have never experienced these stores first hand, you are in for a visual treat in Rusty Chandelier. It is like no other antique store that I have been in. Just look at the displays...

Then we went right next door to Jessie James Antique Mall to dig and find more treasures...
Tempie really got into finding and digging for her treasures!
Here are just a few of my treasures that I found from my day of antiquing. The bag of pearls and chandelier crystals was from Karla Nathan's shop at Miss Frenchies.
I think the best find for me was this minnow dipper net. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. It reminded me of days spent fishing with my PaPa when I was a child. We would "dip" for the minnows and he would show us how to correctly put the minnow on the hook. Then we would fish together. He shared his love of fishing with his granddaughters. PaPa died before Sherri and I turned 16, but I still remember our fishing trips. I still can still hook a minnow and thumb a fish... betcha didn't know that!!!
We had a wonderful day filled with antiquing, laughter, chatting, fun and food.
I am begining to see a trend here with the food!
And boy, can we shop!
Thank you T.U. Ladies for a wonderful trip.... Can't wait for the next one!

I had so much fun! I am of course completely addicted. Next trip I'll have to look for the perfect bottles or jars to go in my planter. Love the last pic of all of us! ;)
