Did some antique shopping in Springfield this past weekend with James and his sister, Ann. We hit up Commercial street in North Springfield where we found some interesting furniture pieces and neat stores. I feel it's necessary to bore you with a little history lesson brought to you by the public library -

The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad, Springfield's first railroad, came to Springfield in 1870. It actually bypassed the town and laid its tracks a mile north of "old" Springfield into the "new" town of North Springfield. A commercial district sprang up around the railroad depot and the street was thus name "Commercial."

blah, blah, blah....picture time!

The fabulous store Red Velvet Art with it's many handmade items suitable for children and trendy adults

The back of Red Velvet Art, which became my photography studio during our brief stay

This Historic Firehouse garden is used for small outdoor weddings

I'm obsessed with sunflowers this year

Okay, I'm sorry, but this is a terrible piece of "art"

Vintage find for only $85!!!! AHHHHHH!!!

This gray chair was only $35! If only we needed another chair...

$200 bones for this baby!
