When you go for a nice Sunday drive along County Road #22 between Emeryville and Belle River, you will see a charming little shop called OLD COUNTRY CUPBOARD. It's like taking a step back in time as the store is filled with quality handmade treasures and hard to find country products. Thousands of items are displayed in the Emeryville store and you can also order things on line.
You can snap up antique reproduction lamps, candle holders, collectible dolls, embroidered pillows, table runners, hand-painted plates, birdhouses, garden accents and more.
