every year on 4th of July...
Soooo many interesting historical buildings...
We made a pit stop in Dubuque, Iowa...
Visited a Fellow Dealer in her Store
Netted a few SHaBBies at
SISTERS GARDEN & BLOOM
in Kalona, Iowa
Although the AMANA COLONIES IN IOWA are very much
a "Tourist" Destination, we were pleasantly surprised to find quite a few QUALITY ANTIQUE SHOPS...
Along with a small "Tailgate" Antique Show going on...
FERN HILL SHOP
Located in SOUTH AMANA COLONIES, IOWA
was my MOST FAVORITE STOP!*!*!
ARCHITECTURAL SALVAGE HEAVEN!!!
Although the price points were quite high, and righfully so, ~
The "Eye-Candy" was just AmAziNg!!!
I most certainly will do a separate post on this!!!
For years I have heard such great things from Dealers, about this show... We finally got to SHOP-IT, this past 4th of July...
Held on a Private Farm Field
In SOLON, IOWA
Just minutes from the SOLON ANTIQUE SHOW, the quaint town
of MT. VERNON, IOWA,
also hosted a small Antique Show on the 4th of July...
Dealers set up their Vintage Finds along the town's Main Street...
Working our way toward Galena, Illinois,
we came upon the sleepy town of SABULA, IOWA...
Wish this store had been open!!!
FLATBOAT PINK VINTAGE
Great Walking Town with lots of historical buildings...
I netted a darling vintage find
*With Cherry Motif*
for my NEXT Show - this Saturday, July 12th
In Door County, Wisconsin...
