Without my telling you the location of this wonderful antiques shop, take a look at a few photos + guess!
Show of hands! Who guessed somewhere east? The stone + patina of that fabulous building make me think of eastern Pennsylvania, but no! This awesome, new shop is in northwestern Illinois — more specifically — my former hometown of Oregon, Illinois (about 90 miles west of Chicago!)
I visited yesterday + was wowed by spopkeeper Karen Tucker’s exquisite offerings.
While I came home with this wonderful English ironstone platter . . .
. . . here are some other things that I loved:
If you get the chance, head to Oregon, Illinois + visit this new shop! 221 W. Washington, St./815.440.4931. If you can’t get there, you can see shopkeeper Karen Tucker at the Pec Thing antiques show in May — http://www.winnebagocountyfair.com/pecthing.asp. She’s very sweet, + she complimented me on my Minnetonka moccasins! I loved that!
But I digress. Just be sure + tell her that Kay says ‘hola’!
