Girls day out with Jean and Stephanie

I love having a "GIRLS DAY OUT"   Stephanie drove and Jean copiloted and I was the designated back seat driver ( self appointed) Our first stop was at Tampico Trading company's Little General Store in down town Tampico., managed by Randy and Denise Brooks. We saw several beautiful items there and bought a wreath for Stephanie and teddy bear for Jean  . Here is the  best news of the day...they will be selling ice cream cones, soft drinks, slushies , this summer!! their hours are 10-4 . Next we went to Sterling to the Family  Table resteraunt  and had lunch.  Our next destination was  Showplace Antiques & Treasures , located in downtown Sterling Il.  I have been in this store numerous times and have yet walked out without buying something. It is just amazing the variety of antiques, collectibles, handicrafts, vintage ,refurnished furniture, floral, home décor and more...always expect the unexpected in shopping in this store..it is truly a wonderful shop  and Sterling so fortunate to have this available. Prices are reasonable and  saw some real  vintage treasures today!  Stephanie bought a refinished end table and I bought  a nice frame and cubs baseball hat that also had Commonwealth Edison  printed on the side , which is where  Bob  worked until his retirement.  I would have  bought more but being just finished Christmas shopping, had to draw the purser string up a bit.    Ok  our next stop was the Chocolatier for some good strings today.  Both shops kindly  let us browse and I took a couple photos to add to day of our  day out.
. Thanks Jean and Stephanie , we had a great time! Please check out the FB site for Showplace Antiques and Treasures and  I know they would appreciate if you could share the site for friends to see.
