First off, I must mention how thankful I am for those readers who were part of the discussion on yesterday’s post> I really appreciate all the insights. I feel like I have a wealth of people to tap into in this blogging community, so why not take advantage of it. Thank you!
On another note, this past weekend was spent on Cherokee Street, St. Louis’ largest strip of antique shops, 6 blocks to be exact. This “down and dirty” part of town is filled with character and people are starting to notice it’s charm and potential.
Walking up and down the streets you’ll discover all the little shops filled with treasures, some antiques and some just filled with old trash. haha. I’m actually surprised this was the first time I’ve been to this Antique Row and feel kind of blind/oblivious for just now discovering it. I loved it. I loved the variety of shops that line the streets and no two stores are the same. Out of all the shops I found a few keepers that I’ll be visiting on a regular basis. (and it’s close to my loft! Bonus!)
Tomorrow, I’ll show you some sneak peeks inside the shops. I was like a kid in a candy store and I love how the shop owners feel the same way. I walked into one shop and said to the owner, “It’s like heaven in here!”. She responded with saying, “OMG it is. I love being in here!”. I may have found my new weekend tradition, so look out people!
* That mint dress apron shown in yesterday’s post was a real gem. $15 for hanger and apron. Love it!
