Junking at the Lake

We attended a cousin's funeral this last weekend near the Lake of the Ozarks on Friday, and Saturday, we visited a few thrift stores we know about. I found a Home Interiors Chicken Teapot at the Packrat Thrift Store in Versailles, Missouri. This thrift store is housed in an old brick schoolhouse and is packed three-floors high with goodies and stays open until five on Saturday. A couple of stores in Eldon, MO. lost our business because they closed early. Too Bad! Ha! Ha!
