Bohemian Trading Post

Yum
While we were in Marceline, Ashley and I did a bit of antiquing. Ashley was looking for an architectural piece to do in her living room. I was just looking. Ashley contemplated some windows, a shutter, a chair and a gate but nothing was just right. We passed this tiny antique shop and not only found her piece but I found things I didn't even know I wanted! I love the name of this shop: Bohemian Trading Post!

First I found this Campbell's soup can bank. It will look so cute in my kitchen, maybe on my window sill where I can see it every day.



Then I found this adorable yellow jelly bowl and matching spoon. I paid $1 for it and I thought of a million things I could do with it.



I found these cookie cutters for 50 cents each. I have always wanted to put my cookie cutters in this glass jar my Aunt Patsy gave me years ago. I didn't have enough but with these little ones, I should be able to fill it up.



So this was our little adventure in Marceline!

  4. Hi Terri

    I've been a bad blog friend lately. Shame on me! Life has been crazy/busy, but in a good way. Trips, company, etc., but with me starting to plan our daughter's wedding, my blogging will suffer I'm sure. I've had fun catching up with you this morning though. Speaking of weddings....any advice would be appreciated.

    Hugs!

  5. I wish I could have browsed with you two. I love cookie cutters - one of my favorite Christmas trees in an old histroic home on tour one year was decorated with cookie cutters hanging from ribbons.

  9. Ha, the last time I "stole" something of the hubby, it came back to haunt me. It was a super ugly sweater he used to wear. I just about gagged when I saw him walking down the hall wearing that sweater. I don't know how on earth he found that 1972 thing. ewwww, I swore I wouldn't do that again. However, we do have neighbors...

  12. .... I just remembered that one of my good friends in Orlando was raised in Marceline. She told the nicest stories of life there.

  13. I haven't been to Marceline in years--that little shop is yelling "road trip" to me! :) It's such fun to find great little (or big!) items at good prices--a real treasure hunt! Dana

    PS the Greenwood Antique Mall in Greenwood (I'm assuming you've heard of the little town--near Lee's Summit) is having their Victorian Garden Party this Fri and Sat. My buddies and I will be there first thing on Fri--for the breakfast and early bird shopping. They have vendors set up in the basement of the mall--last year wasn't the best year, but I'm hopeful THIS year will be great.

  14. Isn't that always the way? You were just along for the ride, but you're the only one who found anything. You found some fun things, too. I love that yellow bowl. I put my cookie cutters in an old jar, too. Have for years...hope that we'll get to see yours!
