Spend a Day at Copper Country

Although it is just the beginning of summer, I have lately been finding myself saying, “I’m bored,” what should I do on my day off, or “what should I do this weekend?”

Well, if you're in the same boredom boat, Copper Country may be the answer to your question. A friend recommended that I spend a couple hours of my time looking at unique antiques, so I decided to take her advice and see what the she was raving about.

With 32,000 square feet you are guided through the “mini-mall” with signs indicating a Way Out West section, Treasure Trail section, Sunset Boulevard and several other sections to direct one through the maze.

Almost every inch of space is filled with collectibles ranging from modern to antique furniture, jewelry, clothes of all different styles, antique cameras, cowboy boots, books, clocks, stoves, artwork and much more.

Some items I came across that grabbed my attention were some World War II U.S. army officer badges along with army visor hats and German WWII bayonets.

In addition to all of these collectibles, Copper Country even has Amelia Grey’s Tea Garden and a Buffalo
Bistro with a full menu of sandwiches, salads, desserts and even a breakfast menu. So not only can you go back in time and find some amazing items to add to your home but you can also enjoy lunch afterwards.

As I was leaving I realized there was a whole other part of the store I had not visited. Forty-five minutes later I exited Copper Country with a longing to come back and spend massive amounts of money on some pretty ‘out-there’ items.

Needless to say it was a successful trip and I will definitely be going back. So for those of you who have some extra time on your hands and a little extra cash, take a peak at Copper Country and enjoy.
