What A Week ~ Day 1 ~ Treasure Hunt

My Week In Sullivan, Mo.
I went Treasure Hunting everyday while my Sweetie was on his job.
Each day I went to a different town or maybe even more.


The Towns I Visited
Sullivan, Stanton, Bourbon, Cuba, & St.Clair, Missouri.

My First Day
I was in Sullivan & my first stop was at this very cute place called
 The Gift Emporium 

You got to Love this Place!

We had lunch here & I enjoyed the Coke Cola / 50's Soda Shop atmosphere.
Best Homemade Cherry Pie in Town!

My First Collection of Treasures 

Blue Willow Transfer-ware Cups & Saucers
Blue Fruit Jars

Red & White Enamelware

Vintage Basket, Dish Towels, Table Cloths, 
Napkin Rings. 

Old Flash Light, Books, Glass Bottle
Metal Wall Decor.

Handmade Needlepoint, Vintage Grease Holder with only the Salt Shaker.
Now to find the Pepper Shaker???

I just liked the colors in this needlepoint. 

More Collectibles

Cutting Board & Old Green Handle Fork.
The Two Chicken Dishes ~ I think they are just part of a larger set but there was only these two.
I think they would be great to serve Black Olives in one & Green Olives in the other.   

Needlepoint Rugs!

Such a great buy I just couldn't pass them up.

This was one of my Favorite Shops
I got some really neat & reasonably priced Treasures there!

I meet the owners 
 Barbie & Ken
( yes that was their real names) 
 also their daughter in law.
(I'm thinking her name was ~ Teresa)   
Very Sweet People!
They told me several other places that I might want to check out while I was in Town. 

As I was leaving I noticed this large Pitcher with the Pears decal
 sitting on the porch floor.
So back inside I went & now it is mine!!!

The Pitcher with the Dog Handle is going to get a Lodge Look Arrangement with Pheasant Feathers.
Hopefully I'll get it done for this fall!

The Fur Stole is in Excellent Shape

Vintage Powder & Face Cream or Sachet Jars.

I am running out of time
I still have more photos to take
 more treasures to share but this is all of now.

So please watch for my next post in a few days.

Until Then
