I happened to be in the Mansfield area- yup, you read that correctly. Mansfield is a hidden treasure on the outskirts of Piatt County. And to be honest, it feels like Champaign County to me, because it is a mere five minutes from my home in Mahomet. So, coming out to Mansfield is just a little jaunt. They have the greatest shops out there. One of those shops is Three-Toad Treasures Funky Junk Shop, located at 101 N. Jefferson, right on the main drag in downtown Mansfield. That's when I learned the shop had changed hands...
You read right! Becky Denzer, left in the picture, and her sister, Jenny Mackey have ventured into shop-ownership. The ladies grew-up right in the area, as they are part of the Padgett family of Mahomet. Becky and Jenny are two of six siblings, and they share a great love for finding treasures.
Although they both have been cleaning houses for many years, they have also been selling second-hand treasure under the name of The Kountry Kabinet, and they sold their items at Three-Toads when local favorite, Johnna Megeff owned the shop.
Becky has sold gift baskets for 16 years in many places in and around the Central Illinois area, most notably in the Carle Gift Shop in Urbana. Baskets by Becky has been a huge success.
"These go quickly," Becky said from Three-Toad Treasures last week about her baskets. Aren't they darling?
The sisters will be keeping the "funky junk shop" theme and the affordability of the items for sale that Johnna established as the premiere owner.
Jenny and Becky are planning all kinds of promotions and are upgrading their sale system to include credit and debit cards soon!
Here are some of the cute items featured by Polka Dot Elephant, one of the vendors at the shop. Other vendors are: Abbie Rose, Simply D & G, The Kountry Cabinet, Two Peas, VIP, and four other new vendors that will be coming to Three-Toad Treasures soon!
You can find cute little items to sweeten up your abode or wonderful antique furnishings as seen here at the shop in Mansfield.
Look at these adorable items, and how can you resist a shop with the name, "Three-Toad Treasures Funky Junk Shop"? I said that name over a few times, when I first heard of it, because it had a nice ring to it.
Tea anyone? Scones?
Adorable or what? I know, right?
How cute it this? Seriously.
The sisters in front of their shop! Isn't this fun? I so enjoyed visiting with them last week. You will enjoy it, too.
The best part? You will enjoy great pricing, and wonderful quality.
I told you...fun. Really fun.
Something for every taste and every style of decor. Love!!
See what I mean? But, I think the best part is...
...that these two warm-hearted sisters will make your day with the joy they share of their love of anything "resale," and those wonderful creations they have at Three-Toad Treasures Funky Junk Shop. It's more than a shop, it's a destination.
