Found Treasures

It's not how much you spend it's how much you save!

The above theory is one that I used to share with my dad quite often. Now what has been over a month ago cgood and I hit Kansas City to do a little shopping. Both of us had new houses to move into, and I needed to get ready for my month long trip to Canada and Junior Nationals. And let me say that we did pretty darn good that day.

First stop was Nebraska Furniture Mart. Sorry Canadian friends I don't think we went to one store you'll find on the north side of the border. Guess you'll just have to come visit me! Cgood picked out some great finds for her living room, and at a great price.

This couch is just like the one I have in my house, but I have a sectional. The most comfortable couch in the world - especially for naps!

Cgood choose the top one for a coffee table. Both sides open for extra storage. She found end tables and a TV stand to match. Can't wait to visit to see it all together.

Next we ventured to my favorite western store ever - Nigro's in Shawnee Mission, KS. I probably shouldn't reveal how much I spent there the first time Em took me there. The Nigro's are great people and are always willing to cut you a deal. I can buy Justin, wood sole, ostrich skin boots there for $280. Pretty good I would say. Also, you won't find a better selected of jeans. I could go on and on. Cgood says next time we are there we need to count how many time they say, "Don't worry we'll take care of you girls!"

These are going to be my next purchase. I just love these boots. I don't think you could find a prettier pair. (I already have on pair in black with red tops!)

Finally, we decided to make a stop a place that our friend Graber had told us lots about. If you are ever through Gardner, KS, you have to make a stop at Rustic Connection. I think I could have bought the whole store. Plus, they were celebrating their fifth anniversary so everything was 20% off - can't beat that. Lots of western and cabin style home stuff. Going to have to make a trip back there soon. 

I love these stars, but was able to resist!

Definitely, going to have one of these in my house one day!

I love stars, and did come home with one of these in teal. My sister bought me a brown one a few years ago for my birthday. It is one of favorite home decor pieces. These stars are great because they come apart - which is great considering how much I move!

Happy shopping to all of you. Feel free to start scheduling a trip to come see me so I can go back to all my new finds!


  1. The furniture is in my new house and it feels AMAZING to finally be moved. Thanks for your decision making assistance that day =)

  2. I think I need to book a trip with your dad and the stock trailer to go on a shopping trip.

  3. Love love love your finds!! I'm SO excited to relaunch Copper West in its new concept and have you contribute as a writer - with your adventures and pictures. Oh I guess I should ask - would you accept the job a Copper West teammate Crystal?? I'd be honored if you'd accept the unpaid (for now - until we become famous!) position.

  4. Thanks ladies for your comments. Hopefully, I'll be posting some more finds soon. As well as pictures of our decorated house.

  5. Awesome finds! Again, I must thank you for your advice on Nigro's - we got to experience that while down in Kansas the end of June!! It is the neatest, most unique western store I have ever been in. I found the bartering process was very interesting. I can't wait to wear my new western wear this fall! Overall, I loved the experience - thanks for the suggestion!!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
