I’m a townie, some of these shops I’ve been going to as young as I could remember… sure takes me back, and hopefully, the vintage items take you back!

Another location I’ve been to, Timeless Treasures is on your way to the Walmart in Savoy, Airport, Savoy Hill at Colbert Park, the best pet store Prarieland Feeds, just to name a few. It’s also close to Savoy 16 so if you miss your early showing, run over to Timeless Treasures and kill some time! I have to say that this particular store may be one of the more affordable ones I’ve been to. They didn’t have an information area for me to copy and paste, so let me share some reviews (for privacy reasons we will be leaving their names out)!

Here’s one of the aforementioned Antique Stores that yours truly had been to!  Go Retro always surprised me with items that I had no idea existed or items straight from the movies. A bit smaller than the rest, yet it packed in an enormous amount of items. There were these vintage lighters, the ones with a huge wick and ignitor, those were awesome! Usually for camping smaller and lighter is better for the backpacking trips but that may just be worth it.

This is another location that I have been to, and really loved! This is definitely a more pricey location, but most of the items are rare and mint condition (I would price check the cameras, some market research is always good). There was this Coca-Cola cooler we saw while on an excursion and it would have been an amazing addition to any room decor, the price for us was a bit much, unfortunately. There were also these crazy paintings and photos that were stunning!
