These are the jars that I spied in the booth at Tablescapes right across the aisle from La Plates.
What's this? A new spot? How could I have missed it?
But it's not new. Round Trip Imports
has been around for a while, I just wasn't paying attention.
Round Trip's owner Mary Lies (pronounced "lease") was originally in town, but moved her shop to DeSoto, Kansas about a year ago.
DeSoto is not far. In a bigger city the twenty minute drive could be a trip to the grocery. But these treasures are more enchanting, and just as essential as bread and milk.
Wonderful furniture and accents.
Some of the best chairs I've seen and I am a self-professed chairaholic.
We don't see a lot of Italian antiques or vintage pieces around town.
And it is such an easy drive, just off K-10 for you Jayhawk fans.
But wait, the news gets even better.
(What is that big pot? I adore it! Me, who's easy on the exclamation points could not resist. There is nothing better than that charcoal-almost-black color.)
I'm not keeping this resource all to myself. Just because I've been twice in a week doesn't mean it's only for those of us who can hop in the car and be back by lunch.
You, too, can shop Mary's wonderful spot. On-line. Here
Tell her Mrs. Blandings sent you.
(Are you seeing the scale? Adore! There I go again.)
