Dancing Bumblebee Cottage Is Now In Big Creek Antique Mall

Well, here we are almost at the end of April. Life sure moves along at a quick pace!  Today (Saturday) is the last day we will be down at Pete N Repeat Repurposed in the West Bottoms.  We are moving out Tuesday.  While it was a fun run, things just didn't work out for me for various reasons.  It's a wonderful shop with even more wonderful fellow vendors, so I wish them all the best of luck going forward.

Back in the late 1980's, my mother and I shopped the antique shops in Greenwood, Missouri.  Over the many years, I still go back and enjoy every minute.  So it made sense to move our business over to Greenwood.  We have located to Big Creek Antique Mall at 509 West Main Street.  Big Creek is a fairly new shop opened just under a year.  We are located in the back corner and as of May 1 will inhabit 130 square feet.

The shop is open 7 days a week, so you'll be able to browse at your convenience versus the First Friday weekend and every Saturday that was available at the West Bottoms.

Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite.  We are just beginning to set up our cozy cottage, so this is definitely a work in progress!







My auction hopping has been temporarily put on hold.  A week ago I spent 4 days in the hospital and found out I have lumbar spinal stenosis.  While this is a somewhat common ailment to the older generation, I don't quite yet fall into that category.  I am on a plethora of medications to help it feel better and I hope to avoid surgery, but this has slowed me down.  Luckily I have enough stock to get me through for a little while, but with the auction season ramping up, I'm hoping that I will be able to jump in with both feet soon.  And when I do, I'll be blogging about the auctions right here.

So check back often!
