  1. Hi my friend...Great pics and info...
    Jeannie took me there when we were in Iowa! I agree one of the BEST places to find those time worn treasures that we LOVE so much. The nicest people and eye candy around every corner! You could easily spend at least half a day there and not see everything.
    Hope you are having a great summer and I see you soon...xo

  3. Wow. . . talk about killer stuff! I so, so loved that old white curved church pew (or I'm guessing that is what it was). I have dealers that are in my store that moved to Iowa, but I can't remember the town. They bring stuff back out here once a month for my store and to sell at Rose Bowl!

    Take care,
    Sue
