Where to get your lovelies, part 2

Voted Best of Renton for Antique shopping, and a great stop for looking for unique bits of flair for your home or kitchen - Antique Country Station. You might recall that the owner, Rod Stewart (nope, he doesn't sing - not professionally, anyways), also won the $500 gift certificate last month to CD Danza - a winning gift certificate that was associated with the Renton Reporter's Best Of Renton as well. Darn - that Rod had a really good month.

After 15 years of operating in that location, you could say that Don and his brother, Ron, are well versed in their field. There are a lot of lovely fancy glass and plate items, but just as many cute and funky vintage finds. It deserves to poked around on a regular basis.

My favorite has to be this sign that hangs in the front window- it is my personal shopping credo for as much of it as I can get away with. Why buy new when you can get something with so much more flavor and individuality from somewhere local. You know it's probably still made better than what is currently available - even with it being on it's second or third reincarnation.
