Heading down the Trail of Treasures this weekend but unsure about the weather?
There are plenty of indoor options in downtown Beatrice that will help you save a bundle without getting drenched.
NE Rescued Treasures—which recently opened their new downtown location at 619 Court St. on Oct. 2—aren’t technically on the treasure map, but they originally wanted to be, said owner Scott German. The store will be offering discounts over the weekend at the hybrid thrift shop and art gallery.
Their original pieces, made by artists from three states, take reclaimed items, like glassware, old fans and light bulbs, and form pieces that are functional and a little whimsical. On the thrift shop side, there’s traditional fare, like board games and Halloween decor, as well as antique tools and an old school desk.
German, who runs the store with his wife and children, said the shop always offers discounts to veterans and members of law enforcement.
Across the street from Rescued Treasures in the old Apple Studios storefront at 612 Court St., BG Hive is an official Trail of Treasures stop run by Glenna Dorn.
Dorn previously held a Trail of Treasures sale from her garage, but said she’s hoping to attract more downtown traffic.
“It’s a great place to have it,” she said on Friday afternoon. “We’ve had about 15 people so far.”
She’s got novelty cake pans in the shapes of lobsters, pigs and more, as well as designer jewelry, woodcut figurines and images made by her father, Pampered Chef merchandise and Tupperware items.
Other vendors on the Trail of Treasures include the Gems and Junk thrift shop at 500 and 502 Court St., which will be open until 6 p.m. on Saturday. The Bargain Box Thrift Store right next door at 506 Court St. is also participating and will be open until 3 p.m. on Saturday, and there will be a sale two doors down from the Black Crow Restaurant at 405 Court St. until 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
Antiques Paradise will be on the Trail of Treasures on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Finally, the Indian Creek Mall at 2205 N. Sixth St. will hold a craft show from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday and on Sunday from noon until 5 p.m.
