A tall mural with cheerful, stylized images of antique home furnishings and a well-placed arrow points visitors to the cherry-red front door of Little Shop Around the Corner. Inside the charming resale shop, tail-wagging vintage merchandise and upscale antique furniture, art, jewelry, and china await to be adopted by new owners. The merchandise is sourced from donations to the Missouri Botanical Garden, located just around the corner. Garden Emeritus Trustee Evelyn Newman dreamt up the idea for the store, whose proceeds benefit the Garden's research and educational initiatives aimed at preserving botanical life, conserving resources, and combating climate change.
Marking its 40th anniversary, this year’s Gypsy Caravan Market amasses the antiques and handcrafted goods of more than 300 vendors to benefit the St. Louis Symphony. Artisans hailing from 20 states ply marketplace wares including furniture, clothing, art, and antique-traffic violations as visitors wend their way through the impressive displays. Kids can park themselves in the Children's Corner, where they’re greeted with activities, while adults sample barbecue, gyros, hot dogs, ice cream and other edibles from more than 15 food vendors.
We import and source high quality, well designed items that are generally handcrafted, often by internationally known artisans. We also mix it up with market finds and other special pieces that you can't find elsewhere. By offering these pieces we are supporting families that we know, which we feel is very important.
