“Let’s Flamingle” August 10th!!!

Mark Your calendars for Saturday, August 10th, 11-4:30
We are having a “Let’s Flamingle” day at the shop.  
Sales, prizes and of course munchies.  
It is my hope that the dealers can be present to meet and greet you
and most important—make deals!  The flood waters have 
receded—-we never were wet in our store, but of course the 
media made it sound  like the entire city of Alton was under water.
Trust me, we might not have flood water damage, but it has been a hard
few months for everyone.  
With that said, we look forward to this fun day!!!
Until next time,

Getting Geared Up for Another Fun Event

I’m working out details for another fun event.  We just had our “Chili” day mid February.  I think we’ll wait until Easter, Proms, and even Mother’s day to pass by.  Probably looking at early June.  Everyone is so busy, I’ll keep you posted.  Don’t wait until then to come in - - -the shop already has a different look, with much more to come.  It’s been a good busy couple of months and we are ready for spring, and tourists, and happy customers!  See you soon,
Until next time,

It’s Been A While—But We Are Still Here!

Here are some shots of different booths and spaces inside our shop.  Its been so long since I posted, I’m actually using this as a practice—but I think you’ll see things you like!  Just last weekend we had a fun Saturday—cold and chilly outside, hot chili inside.  Everyone was invited to come in for some hot chili while they browsed the shop.  It was a good day! Look through the pictures and enjoy!  I’ll try not to take so long to post again.  Follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

 We truly have something for everyone!
Until Next Time

Happy Fourth of July!!!

We have lots of changes going on here in the Alton shop.  Sorry it’s been so long since I posted.  Nothing is more discouraging that finding a shop you love, looking at the blog and it’s soooo outdated.  Promise I’ll try to do better!  You can also see us on Instagram and believe it or not I have a Country Meadows Antiques facebook page now!  Watch it, like it and follow it!

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July.  It may not seem like it——but we have so much to be thankful for.  
Until next time,

We’re Wet—But We’re Open!

This is the window at our Alton store!  We sprang a leak—well, many leaks.  Until the rain stops so the roof can be repaired and the gutters replaced, this window will be empty.  The only reason I’m even posting this is because so many people have seen the empty window and thought we were closed.  NO WE ARE NOT CLOSED.  Normal hours are Monday through Saturday from 11-4:30 and Sunday from Noon to 4:30.  Please come see us!  Lots of great things happening in Alton, and we’ve been a part of it since 1986.  It’ll take more than a leak to chase us away! Follow us and like us on Facebook and Instagram—finally!
Until next time,

The pictures below first show the windows at Wood River, then Alton.  Come and see us.  And again, THANK YOU!
