We turned around TWICE to get to the place as well as illegally parked. It was worth it. Walking up to the front you see a sign that politely asks "please knock". I did so.. waited a bit and did it again. It took forever for the mirrored glass door to open and when it did there was a women not a day shy of 94 years old. She was ancient. Meghan liked her... I did not. She was sassy in not a good way... And I didn't appreciate her snark. Apparently this is her daughter's store and she was just waiting on her housekeeper to relieve her from her store watching duties.. Whatevs. We walk in and this place is like WOAH- I was thanking god I have size 6 1/2 feet because you could barely step without smushing some crappy "antique". Now don't get the wrong picture, this place had some nice things, random but nice, it definitely wasn't a junk shop or the flea market type but everything was super duper overpriced. Just wait for it...
Mom asks ancient nanny women what this particular glass/ ceramic/ plasticy fruit sculpture is made out of and nanny replies: "It's 250 dollars". Okay, since we weren't asking the price....
We continue walking to the back of the store.. In which we have to switch on the lights (they're too cheap to keep on??). And this is where the magic happens...
|Oil painting of large St. Bernard spooning a small child. $225|
|Reba McEntire pen and ink drawing. $85|
|Plastic dog with leg-hiked-up-in-peeing-position sculpture. $75|
Serious face... We were hysterically laughing in this place.. I think I even referred to something as a "piece of trash". This is a must see for anyone needing to waste some maja time in Hot Springs.
Are you a fan of antiquing?
