Gothenburg Trip

Saturday I took a trip to my daughters speech meet in Gothenburg. I love days like this that you have time to roam small towns for antique/thrift stores. And boy did I find an awesome little store.
This is the front window of the store and i could not wait to enter the front doors and check it out.
This is the owner, Elsie and her daughter. Elsie moved to Gothenburg from Arizona where she had been in the antique business for 20 some years. She had the most contagious laugh. Her store was brimming with history and stories to be told... as well as her own story.
Her prices were great as well.
I fell in love with these "stamp art" pictures. It is metal with a form of yarn/cross stitch. My favorite said rock of ages. I will be researching these pictures as they were awesome.
I did purchase a large green vase and 2 old drawers and will post later. I also found a little coffe shop and tried a new drink... java mocha chip... mmmm !!!
So if you are ever driving by Gothenburg Nebraska via backroads or I-80, stop in and say hi to Elsie. Tell her Roxanne sent ya!!

Great little shop! Don't you just love stuff like that? I can't get enough of it.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I was thinking of the crystal pedestals you made the other day and couldn't rememeber who you were. I'm glad I found you again!
