Back To My Roots!!!

It's impossible for me to plan a trip back to St. Louis without including a trip to "Roots" on the agenda....just can't even FATHOM the idea!!  This is one of my favorite stores ever and this year, there was an extra good reason to visit: They have moved into their new shop!!

Awesome new space to house all of the goodies that they find when they haunt all of the great estate sales in St. Louis...and anyone who goes to them there knows they are the BEST sales!!  Here you will find just the most quirky cool items.  It's impossible for me to go out of there empty handed!!!   Roots is located in Maplewood, which is on the fast track to becoming one of the most trendy areas there. 

These glass balls just look good enough to eat and in the rustic box, it makes them even more delectable!!  I have no idea of what they are or where they came from, but I don't care!!

Now....if I JUST lived in  that cool industrial loft I dream about, I'm certain I would buy this cool rolling shelf unit that the gals have scored!  The bottom shelf is stocked with some neat wooden and metal boxes with numbers on them....I had to have the one that had lucky number 13 on it--just for fun!!

This normally takes up the majority of my time in Roots....picking through the neat little cards, puzzle pieces, buttons or anything else that strikes my mood!  Again...another interesting piece that I would want for my industrial loft to stash kitchen items or jewelry!!

Pool anyone??!!  Did the girls raid a pool hall going out of business to find this hardy stash or just over time??  No clue, but they are perfect for display!

Truly three of my favorite gals in all of St. trip in and you will instantly know what I mean!  Until next year, keep smiling and finding great stuff for me to drool over!!  Any trip through St. Louis is INCOMPLETE without a trip to Roots.  Skip the arch....besides, what fun things can you buy there??!! LOL!
