Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Mine has been pretty fun, especially since it included antiquing with friends Leslie, Jo and Ginger yesterday! First on our agenda was the Old Summit County Antique show in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
River Cabin Antiques from Holts Summit, MO
I think this was one of their best shows yet. Many returning vendors, but some new ones too that keep things fresh. Ever mindful that we are approaching the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Mary and Bob from River Cabin Antiques dressed their booth in patriotic bunting. 

Their mustard colored walls were the perfect backdrop for a variety of very fine primitives. Leslie debated between a couple of pantry boxes, finally settling on a round one with old black finish. 
"Old Friends" from Lamar and Joplin, MO
I loved the seasonal decorations that were tucked in among the inventory. Even the decoys sported a bit of fall finery. 

Wonderful Primitives (Pepsi Not Included)
All that shopping made us hungry and our favorite place for lunch in Lee's Summit is Johnny Ray's, an authentic diner that serves amazing steakburgers.

After fortifying ourselves for another round of shopping, we headed east to Greenwood, a tiny gem of a town with several wonderful shops and malls. Our first stop was Old Glory. We loved Vicki's new entry.
Greenwood Mercantile is packed with wonderful booths and vendors include Maggie Bononomi and wool maven Anita White. We really enjoyed Janelle Carey's whimsical touches.
"Edgar, Allen & Poe"

Note Well Dressed Skeletons with Bow Ties
My finds included an old pine picture frame, lots of bobbins for crafting, an old army blanket and a tole box with wonderful paint. I'll share photos in my next post!
