"Antiquing We Go" was born in 1986. Three years after doing a guide for Ozark, Nixa and Rogersville I went on KY-3 TV with Lisa Richardson-Rose to announce I was now going to do a guide for Springfield. Before we were off the air, the phone at home and at the TV station was ringing off the hook with dealers wanting a guide for their town. So came the idea of one large map for Springfield and surrounding areas.
Please, tell the shops that you love "Antiquing We Go" and that you are glad they are listed. EACH shop pays to be listed. They need to know it was money well spent!! Please, always call ahead before making a special trip. Days and hours are changeable.
My husband Mike and daughter Arianna and I live on my old family homestead c1824 outside of Ozark. I love family heirlooms, but not everyone has them. Besides, I can never get enough old stuff. I have the fever!!!
I love going to Antique Shops, Flea Markets, Garage Sales! God help you, if you are in the van with me when I see an antique shop or garage sale sign. My heart starts to pound fast and I get all excited, I just can't get out of the car fast enough. I love searching for gifts that bring back all those special memories of days past. Remember your old childhood toys, grandma's old handmade quilt, your child's rocker, marbles or maybe an old toy train or doll. That's the whole purpose of this guide, is to help you find what feeds your addiction and then take it home with you. Please, enjoy and have FUN!
