I've mentioned my favorite collectible shop in many posts. Our friends in Union County, Illinois worked diligently to raise money to restore an old store in the little town of Cobden. They are members of the Union County Historical and Genealogy Society, and one side of the store is an incredible museum ... and the other side is the collectible shop that supports all their efforts. Most recently, they purchased another building and are using it to store all their genealogy archives, have special collection exhibits and have classes and lectures. This little collectible shop is doing a fantastic job for them. We donate to the shop, but we buy plenty and our shiny mantel eggs and garland came from that little shop!
I embellished the garland with strands of sheer ribbon in a variety of colors! I love the way it looks! A little bit shabby, but the ribbon makes it fancy enough to blend well with the shiny eggs!
