The owner is older and more hard of hearing, but the dance is the same. You have to pull out the stuff you are interested in and lug it to where he is sitting......then you start asking him how each item is! If he acts like he doesn't hear you..... he is probably calculating how much you might pay for said item (checking out your clothes, car and jewelry you were foolish enough to be wearing....ha...ha! He doesn't believe in bartering.......he gives you a price and that is it:D
Once we loaded our goodies in the car.....we were off to Defiance, Mo. Much to our dismay, Mondays are the antique dealers Sundays......everyone was closed with few exceptions.
On to Augusta, Mo. where we found more of the same ..."CLOSED". We did find two little places open and enjoyed their wares. We had lunch at a sweet little restaurant in town.....then it was on the road again:D Next stop.....Washington, Mo. (pop. 17,000) located right on the Missouri River. Lovely little town (home of my darling daughter-in-law, Sheila) with many interesting shops.......NONE OF WHICH WERE OPEN:(
We had such a pleasant day just pittering around, taking pictures and viewing the beautifiul country in our gorgeous state!!!!!
