I took a vacation day off work yesterday and my daughter and I went to Kansas City to what they call The Bottoms ,it's old warehouse that the antique shops have mostly moved to and really its great shopping like this. Instead of running all over a large city looking for shops,
I have high seated chair that I really like however my legs dangle off when sitting in it, this chair is for a very tall person, anyway I found a small footstool that I thought would work fine in my living room.
Then I found these little 6 inch in height staffordshire dogs, I knew I always liked these then when I started going back through my Charles Faurdee books I knew why I liked them, just classic dogs for sure. They aren't 1800's however do have British mark on bottom.
They have the same little collars as my other dogs
They look sweet with my large staffordshire dogs
Then I have collected these jars in the blue and white onion pattern since the 1980's, back then they were like $125-175 each which I didn't buy any of course. Now you can find them $25-45 each.
I didn't have the Beans jar and I love it
It was lots things to look at in those warehouses, we happened in a couple wonderful filled ones for sure, lots painted furniture, I never seen so many huge pictures to hang, and spring garden items. I want one of those large balls you hang in a tree
I found these M A Hadley salt and pepper at the first building we went in I think it's name was Red Shed. I have a friend who has every piece ever made in this old country kitchen pattern.
This was a good reasonably priced building
Then there was a very nice couple who had all British items and had a huge pub sign that showed Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on it. I bought a cup tea strainer that has Ireland insignia and dated 1938 for $1.00 !!!!
It was a fun shopping day we also had lunch in one of the warehouse I think it was the Bottom
Here we are standing in from of the Pub sign
It was a cold windy day of shopping but can't wait to go back. Now I am going to Jefferson City for a birthday party for my grandson and he wanted a blackberry cobbler instead of a cake so it's in the oven. I think it was 15 degrees here when I got up just FYI LOL
