Antiquing through Iowa

Cute light display using food graters.  Okoboji mall

Lots of white paint on the cupola.  Okoboji mall

Wow!  Life size Marilyn.  Antiques ETC.  Milford

Lovely to look at Mainstreet Memories Mall
Usually in the spring we head toward Iowa for our annual treasure hunt and we were pleased with our finds this year.   Going to mention some of our favorites shops which always prove to be worth the stop.  Estherville has Highway 9 Antiques, with beautiful furniture, glassware and accessories greeting shoppers.  A second room offers many smalls displayed on vintage cupboards etc.  Always good prices.  On to Spirit Lake where the Spirit Lake Antique Mall offers a wonderfully eclectic array of top quality antiques for sale from beautiful wood primitives to shabby painted furniture.  Great choices.  Arnolds Park has another very large mall which was open during the winter for the first time and had excellent traffic.  We always leave with boxes and sacks full of goodies as well as larger pieces.  Several miles down the road in Milford is Antiques ETC which is loaded with a variety of smalls  for collectors.  Be sure to stop in Emmetsburg on a Wednesday to take advantage of their terrific sale day!  Mainstreet Memories Mall is going to expand into another building in April and offer primarily primitives at that location, and for the time being will be open only on Wed----more great deals!  Will include some pix so you get the idea of what's available.
