Mantiques: A Promising Store Name!
On my return trip from the Fort Leavenworth Militaria Collectibles Show last Saturday, I stopped in Weston, MO to visit a few antique shops. Weston is a town known for antique hunting, but it also offers a nice historic home tour every year in December.
When I got out of the car, my eyes were immediately drawn to a sign marked “Old Geezer’s Mantiques.” A word like mantiques is like a promise that when I enter the store, I will not smell scented candles or potpourri, nor will I see stenciled crafts, newly made rag dolls and quilts, or newly made “primitive” brick-brac.
My assumptions were correct. The store contained many interesting items and plenty of good deals. Shop owner George Treese and I exchanged banter while I browsed through his inventory. Check out the images with captions of items I found interesting in Old Geezer’s Mantiques.
