New Antique Shop in Brookside/Waldo-The Nut Cup

By

Brookside and Waldo are popular places for small business owners...I think this is the third locally owned new business I've written about in the past several weeks.  Today I will introduce you to The Nut Cup, an antique and collectibles shop that opened last month at  7021 Oak, next to Eclectics.

 

Owner Trish Skidmore has been in the antique and estate sale business for many years.  A friend  approached her about selling the contents of a small two bedroom home in Raytown.  The house was filled with vintage items (signs, toys, knick-knacks, quilts, furniture, etc) from years past.  It was a treasure trove of goodies that Trish wanted to display and sell to other folks who appreciate these classic items.  After looking at several  locations, she decided on the Brookside/Waldo area to rent space and opened The Nut Cup. 

 

 

There are a few very unique things (besides the merchandise) that  make this shop special.  First, children and pets are welcome!  Trish has a special section of the store called The Nutty Nook,  where kids can choose their own treasures and pick the sales price between $1-$5.  Don't miss the fresh Waldo honey water she offers all of her visitors, it's very tasty.    She also has a "wish wall", with notes from customers who are looking for a particular item--if Trish has a match, she will get in touch.  There is a  large chalkboard with "Did You Know" facts posted every few days and don't miss the bathrooms--one with a wall full of vinyl records and the other with old holiday decor (all items available for purchase).  If you like a riddle--examine her store front windows which always have a certain theme or phrase you have to guess, depending on what is displayed there.  And if you don't find anything to purchase, Trish will give you one of her small batch homemade candles so you aren't leaving empty-handed.

 

 

 

 

Trish loves to chat with those that stop by the store and wants people who come in to "make a memory" during the visit.  Her tagline for the store is actually Merchant of Memories. Hours for the store are Tuesday -Saturday 10am to 6pm; Thursday hours are noon-8pm.  Stop in and welcome Trish to Brookside--it is a real treat browsing through this store and visiting with her.

It is just fun going through an antique shop to think back and reflect. I don't have to buy a thing and still enjoy it.
