A Craigslist Roadtrip

I purchased some items off of Craigslist and they had to be picked up in Itasca, Texas - that's about an hour-and-a-half from us.  Mom agreed to make the Saturday roadtrip with me so we researched Antique Stores in that area.  Our favorite stop was Red Horse Antique Mall in Cleburne, Texas.  It was 3 floors and we came out of there with lots of treasures.

We traveled on to Rio Vista, Texas and had lunch at this cafe called Roughnecks.  I didn't notice the population of Rio Vista, but I'm guessing about a fourth of them were at this place for lunch.













And it wasn't because it was the only place in town - check out my lunch:













My iced tea was served in jar - just the way it should be.

One of the things I love about Texas is that you can take off in any direction and hit small town after small town - most with old Main Streets or Squares lined with Antique Stores.

looks fabulous! I need to hit the road and make my way back to Texas for a bit. My grandmother was born in Itasca and we had cousins who lived in Cleburne growing up!
Oh the memories...but i do not remember there being anything as wonderful as either of these places:)
