One of the most interesting stores in Rosebud, Texas is this treasure chest! Poppy Dean’s Antiques.
From the outside, it looks interesting, but once you step inside …
I had to ask, what kind of a store was this to begin with? I expected J.C. Penny or something similar. Nope! The original store occupying this building was the Tarner-Henslee Company. Marvin said he had seen a picture of it from 1896. In the picture, there was a dirt road and 3 buildings. On the first floor they had a general merchandise store and the balcony was the display area for horse drawn buggies!
The old hand pulled lift used to get them up there is still there.
The store is full of cool old stuff and Marvin’s knowledge made it like a museum tour! Here’s just a few of the displays. You will have to go there yourself to get all the details cause I didn’t write it all down.
This is just a fraction of all the goodies they have 🙂 I’ve got dozens more pictures!
If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and tell them Grama Sue sent you!
