Well just in time for fall, we have picked up some amazing country pieces. Funny how all of the colors are perfect together. I love the colors of fall--deep reds, oranges, golden yellows and toss in some brown. The pieces shown in the pictures are not redo's or makeovers. The colors are original to the early pieces...just the way we love it. Enjoy...
The Riverbend Growth Association held a ribbon cutting ceremony to help us celebrate 30 years in business. I invite you to go to Riverbender.com (click on video) to see the video of the ceremony and continue watching as we stroll through the shop. I think you'll love it. We do!
Our celebration was a wonderful success. Thanks to the hundreds of loyal customers we were busy all day. The weather was perfect---lots of sales----yummy refreshments---prizes! It was really something.
Furniture going to a new home!
Customers coming and going!
Darlene--a loyal customer having fun!
It was busy all day!
Sweet treats from our neighbor and friend--My Just Desserts
It's hotter than a firecracker in Alton---but shopping at Country Meadows can be a cool experience. Lots of changes---new merchandise----something for everyone. We will be celebrating our 30th year in business at the end of August. Stay tuned----we are making plans for the celebration. More information coming!
Chairs stacked up high!
Lots of quilts for you to pick from.
We've had a run on selling our country items so will be replenishing soon.
Don't forget Fireworks on the Mississippi, Sunday July 3rd.

I promised some pictures of the shop--the redo and look of fresh paint and carpet after the fire. We are constantly changing displays but here is how some of it looked yesterday! Over 5,000 square feet of needful things! Take a look.....
This gives you an idea of our shop. I have more pictures, I'll add later. Check
It was a year ago that we were called to the shop in the early morning of Mother's Day. Someone had broken in, robbed us and then set fire. I hope you never get a call like that. I'm posting some pictures of the inside of the shop to give you an idea of what smoldering smoke will do. We are still cleaning up items----it's been overwhelming. But we're down to 93 uhaul boxes! We were closed all last summer and reopened October 3rd. It's so great to be back--but the anger is still there. Yes, it's time to move on---but until we are done spending our time cleaning up stuff instead of being creative, I can't seem to move on. On the upside---the shop now looks fantastic, and business is good. I'll show pictures of the "redo" in another post.
