The snow was falling and the fog was settling in, though the temperature didn't feel that cold. My mom and a friend of ours, Lisa, and I went to the opening of Kansas City's newest monthly antique and vintage market in the historic Kansas City West Bottoms ~ called "Bottoms Up."
As we found our way to the location next to the railroad tracks and just north of the 12th Street viaduct ~ it was in an old Holsum Food Products warehouse ~ that had been long closed down, but still had remnants of days gone by ~ how appropriate for searching for antique treasures!
Some of Kansas City's best dealer's were presenting some pretty amazing finds in this 8,000 sq. ft. warehouse setting ~ some very high end, primitive European pieces that were hard to "touch"...but also some very reasonable finds that anyone could bring home.
