Journey 245: Betty’s Attic

I was back in Arkansas today, working in the house that was home to Greg’s dad. We made good progress, sorting through items, emptying out three closets and creating “keep” and “sell” piles. This will be an ongoing process, until every drawer, cupboard and closet has been sorted through. Then our adult children and grandchildren can come pick through the treasures at Papa’s house. 


It wasn’t all work today though. We had a late lunch with Greg’s cousin Pam. I got to enjoy her company and another new restaurant this afternoon. After great meals at Beef O’Brady’s, we headed across Bentonville and Rogers to Betty’s Attic, a very attractive flea market and antique store. 

I love browsing in flea markets. This was a new shop to me, and we had more than a casual interest in it. Pam just rented a booth in Betty’s Attic yesterday and set up her merchandise. And she did a great job! Her booth is attractive, full without being cluttered and has a nice variety of merchandise. 


Here are more pics of the booths in Betty’s Attic, located at  2511 N 2nd St, Suite #5, Rogers, AR. 




We enjoyed looking through this beautifully kept, artfully arranged shop. And we had the opportunity to visit with one of the booth owners, a delightful woman in her 80’s. I think having a booth at one of Joplin’s fine flea markets would be a great way to dispose of the items from Bob’s house that no one in the family carries home. And I’m sorting through stuff in my own house. This could be a fun and profitable way to clear both houses and graciously release items that have fulfilled their roles in our lives. Seems like a win/win to me!
