I chose, as my homework, to produce a post about a retail store where I like to shop and thought you might like to as well. It is called Little Shop Around The Corner.
right around the corner.
website gives directions if you want to check it out. They also tell you how you can donate items and receive a tax deduction. It is also a good idea to check for their SALE dates. Members of the Missouri Botanical Garden receive a 10% discount AND on special days an additional 10% discount. At certain times of the year there is a 20% discount for everyone which means members get another 10%. See why I like shopping here? But that's not the only reason.
Like any resale shop, you never know from day to day what you are going to find. The merchandise rotates rather quickly here, so it is a good idea to check in often. Today I saw something I did not even know existed. Do you know what this is?
I did not, so I asked. As always the staff was most helpful.
So that's how it works! A mechanized washboard. Turns out this was not something I was looking for today. But I certainly learned something and I have a greater appreciation for my washing machine.
It is a great place to shop for an anniversary or birthday gift.
You will find antiques,
and you will find collectibles. These canes are just a small part of a collection that was donated by a collector.
They always have quality pieces of furniture. The range is from antiques to very contemporary pieces.
Sometimes there will be a very unique item displayed in the window.
I was lucky enough to pop in the day this couch went on the floor.
Now it is resting comfortably on my living room floor.
I want to mention here how very helpful the manager was in getting this delivered to my home. Mark Currington manages the shop and his genteel manner compliments such a fine establishment.
Take the time to look around and then come back again because there will always be something new. I did, and this is what I found.
If you live in the St. Louis area or plan to visit here soon, take a little time for the:
website for more details and pictures. There is an interesting mural painted on the side of the building which you will see on the website. Be sure to let me know what you find at this little shop. Shoppers love sharing their stories and I want to hear yours.
