Two more stops on my Midland day shopping for high-quality antiques, artwork and ethnic diverse items included Packrat Antiques and Motif Antiques Etc. Be sure to check out the other Midland shops, where you will be able to find more beautiful antiques and artwork

Looking for high-quality western artwork and collectibles? Be sure to stop by Pack Rat Antiques, located at 307 Dodson street in the Village Shopping Center strip mall during your Midland, Texas day shopping trip.

Owner Mary Snoddy is selling an original set of Baltimore and Ohio Railroad china from Shenango, China. Mary said nobody loves the railroad more than she does, and this delicate china with the blue and white artwork pattern was used on the fancy dining cars in the 1930s and 1940s.
