Stops Along the Way

This was the week for college visits.  It was also the time to visit new towns and new antique/vintage stores.  While it was bittersweet visiting the colleges, it was also exciting for a new chapter in all of our lives.  My first child to go away to college.  All of the memories surfacing in my mind of his youth and all of the new memories to come.  I know that I have another year with him at home, but, boy do those years go by fast.

Ok, I'll wipe those tears away and focus on the stops that we made along the way.  Reflections of the Past is a vintage clothing, jewelry and consignment clothing store located at 182 West Main Street in Whitewater WI.  I like her selection of vintage clothing.  Treasures for the Home at 18 W. Beloit Street in Darien WI had a nice selection of vintage items and great prices.  They will be moving in the next month so check with them first before going there.  Needles 'n Pins Yarn Shoppe has a huge selection of yarn located at W903A County Rd A in Delavan.  Check out their hours before going since they are closed a day or two during the week.

Donn's Antiques & More at 104 N. Main Street in Toluca IL was a fun find.  We stopped by with only 10 minutes to go before he closed and he stayed open for longer because he sometimes does that.  He has a nice selection of vintage items and some you have to dig for.  Reclaimed Resale is at 104 S. Menard St in Metamora IL.  They had a nice selection of thrift store finds but the vintage items were a little pricey.  Fun to look through though.

Tomorrow is the Heritage Fair at the Historical Museum in Union IL.  The barn opens at 9am with a vintage sale.  This is always a fun place to visit.  The flea market in Cedarburg WI is tomorrow also.  Saturday July 18 is the Rockford Vintage Market (see their Facebook page for more info).  Also that Saturday and Sunday is the flea market in Mukwonago WI.  July 30 is the rummage sale at the Calvary Church on Route 31 in Crystal Lake.

Happy treasure hunting!
