Being native Missourians, we also have a love of rural Americana. Fresh from the farms and towns dotting the Midwest, we offer a limited selection of painted furniture and trade signs, as well as folk art and objects that defy categorization.
What began as a pastime 20 years ago is now a passion. Please join us by browsing the categories above to view a sample of our current inventory.

Welcome to the Missouri Plain Folk online marketplace. Our specialty is paint decorated game boards of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Over the past 20 years it has been our privilege to work with game board collectors across the country. Published in 2001, The Art of the Game
is the result of our greatest effort to date. This full color hardback book depicting the collection of Selby Shaver is a window into the world of this captivating and imaginative form of American folk art. We believe each piece should resonate with the individual client at the level of collecting they have chosen to pursue. With that in mind, our online marketplace offers a variety of game boards at a range of prices with one common thread; the art of the game.
