Antique Ramble is Still On.

A while back I  did a post about an event we are having here in my little home town of Clarksville,Mo. It is an Antique Ramble. The antique shops are open and having specials. The Mayors Stone Cottage and My Old Historic House are both open for tours. We have been going through a flood, but the river has settled down and we are going ahead as planned with the Ramble, this Saturday May 4th. 10:00 to 5:00 Some of the roads are still flooded but there is clearly marked detours. The country side is beautiful as it come alive with spring. Red buds are blooming. The house tours are $5.00 each and you can pay at either house. Go to one or both.No appointments needed. Just show up.The Mayors Stone Cottage is a little gem, done to the early American period with fine antiques, paintings and accessories. My Old House is 1845 Ante Bellum and also done to the period. It sets right on the river banks and I am sure there will be a sand bag or two setting around.  There will be a visitors tent at the 4 way stop. There will be maps of the shops and tour houses there. Park on the highway and walk. Every thing is in a few blocks. The Station  will be open with Farm to Table Food. It is a world class place to eat, beautiful and what wonderful food. Come make a day trip and enjoy our little town and see what it is like to live on the Mighty Mississippi. We are a little messed up with a lot of sand bags, but the beauty of Clarksville and what it has to offer is still out front.I'll be at My Old Historic House, giving tours. My little Antique Mall, downtown, 2 blocks away, will be open and we are well stocked with lots of garden and spring items. Please try and come. Say hello and meet Ms. Sissy Dog. she'll be glad you came.
