There is nothing quite like the feeling that is elicited when visiting an antique shop. You know that you live in the modern day, the 2020s, but you feel intrinsically attached to the artifacts of days past. Visitors may wonder, “is this the type of phone my great grandparents may have used?” Or “did cupboards really look like that?”. It’s very easy to be detached from the people who lived 50, 100, or 200 years ago.
This feeling is certainly felt when visiting Country Meadows Antiques. Country Meadows has everything from depression era glass and collectible Lionel train sets to White Hall pottery. This shop has an unrivaled selection.
What’s more? They have demonstrated their dedication in collecting Americana relics too. Operating for nearly three decades, Country Antiques has had the time required to build up a really impressive collection. Anybody who visits southern Illinois or the greater St. Louis area should take the quick drive to Alton to visit the regional staple. You might come away with a really nice piece of Americana.
