Then off we went...we decided we'd go on down to West Frankfort to Arnetts Country Store holiday open house then stop in Mt Vernon on the way back and grab a late lunch somewhere inbetween....but on the way, I had a handsome truck driver call me for us to meet him & another driver at a truck stop just off the interstate in Mt. Vernon & he'd buy us lunch! LOL...those of you that know me, know that my husband is an over-the-road driver and we just happened to cross paths yesterday...he runs that neck of the woods on a regular basis! We wrapped up lunch & we said our "love yous & be carefuls" & off we went!
I think we reached Arnetts around 2....If you've never visited Arnetts, you can get a sneak peek on their web site http://www.arnettscountrystore.com/ or www.picturetrail.com/arnettscountrystore . I hope that's right! What an awesome early american primitive store!! I'd been there before about a year and a half ago and have wanted to go back since! FINALLY made the time to go!! These are my treasures from Arnetts...
We got the jeep loaded up...Sherrie bought a small table and a fairly large wall shelf w/pegs....and off we went back to Mt. Vernon to The Olde Homestead.... fyi her web addy is http://www.theoldhomestead.net/ . Another awesome primitive store! She has also been featured in the Primitive Gatherings magazine! I had also visited this store before and I was SO hoping that Sherrie & Linda enjoyed them as much as I did....which they did!
We made it back to my house around 10:30....we stopped for breakfast in Wentzville at the Waffle House....a fine dining establishment that I enjoy stopping at for breakfast while out and about & a place that neither Sherrie or Linda had the pleasure of! LOL And...on the way home I found out that that handsome truck driver that bought our lunch was going to be going home on a fluke! He made it home before I did!!
I'm already making a list of things that I need to email Arnetts about....Sherrie decided she needs some stockings as Linda & I bought....and I'm wanting more of them too!
It was a GREAT day....I think we done some pretty good shoppin' & covered alot of territory for just a day!!
Nice weather, good friends, awesome shops and a handsome fella to buy lunch...what more could a girl want?!
Today isn't as excitin'...but not as costly...shhh.....LOL....went to church this morning but doin' laundry this afternoon.
So how have you spent your weekend? Do post a comment....I enjoy hearing from you!!
