Airplanes and Trunks...

Marianne put this great old trunk in the shop today.
Check out the interior! All lined with vintage wallpaper.
She's got it priced at 40.00. It has casters on the bottom and a flat top, so it could be used for a coffee table.
We've also got some interesting books about war planes in the shop.

PT Street Cruiser hits Route 66

Today we had the Heflins from Virginia stop by the Old City Hall Shoppes and the Illinois Rt. 66 Museum. They are driving their awesome PT Cruiser all dolled up for a trip down Route 66.

Get your kicks on Route 66!

This little guy prefers to ride in the fresh air apparently.
Monkeying around on Route 66?

We hope they have a great time on the rest of their trip!

Touring Route 66

Today we had a charming group of Frenchmen stop in at the shop (one was camera shy). They bought bikes and are almost done traveling Route 66...they are finishing up in Chicago. It's so much fun to meet and greet all the folks traveling the old road.

PJ's Doll's Clothes

Paula Steidinger makes wonderful doll's clothes to fit American Girl and similarly sized dolls. She has clothes to fit Bitty Baby sized dolls too. The clothes are handmade by Paula and her relatives. She also carries some accessories such as shoes. As an example of prices: a two piece outfit (skirt and top) is $7.50, and a 3 piece outfit (skirt, leggings, and top) is $9.50. If you have been pricing doll's clothes lately, you know this is a bargain!
