After such good finds at Artichoke Annie’s, we made one final stop. We visited the Lonestar (apropos since I am from Texas) Antique Mall. We stopped in Cuba, Missouri and found several nice things including old books, ironstone and old advertising pieces. We also found a wicker/wood rocking chair and a vintage cement cherub.
I am avid collector of old things and odd things, repurposed, well-loved and handmade things. The sense of sharing something across time and across the country makes antique hunting very appealing, almost magnetic. Seems as though Missouri and Kansas have their fair share of pull when it comes to finding the good stuff.
