It’s the holiday season

This is just the best time of the year, isn’t it? I can’t think of another time when we sit back and reflect on the relationships we have with one another and what we mean to each other. Right now I’m sitting back and reflecting on 2011. I’m thinking about all of my customers, consignors, supporters, and friends. Thanks you for all you do to support my little shop, I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

America is about dreaming, about following your dreams and making a difference. Every day I wake up and feel so fortunate to know that I have helped so many people find great items for their home or as gifts for loved ones. For 2012 I can’t wait to see what great finds my consignors bring in and encourage all of my wonderful customers to stop in and bring friends with you to share the excitement of discovery.

Have a great holiday season!

Out with the old & in with the new!

Ah! Spring has finally sprung in Iowa. At least, I think this time its going to stick. So now a great time to get out and brush off the winter duldrums and more importantly dig through you closet to see what still fits for spring. If- like us- you over indulged in comfort food, bring your clean, gently used items to us and we will sell them.

Items we are looking for:

  • Shorts
  • Lightweight jackets


As always- check out sign out front for more wanted items. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Every gift has a story

We have some truly remarkable consignors. Each time they bring in new items to the store I love to hear about the history attached to it. It’s even more fun when I get to pass that story along to the new owner.

This holiday season it will be real easy to go buy an item from a big box store and call it a present. But a real gift is finding something unique, something that has a story attached to it. The possibilities are endless. During this season of giving, visit a consignment store and find a unique treasure for someone that you care about.

Give them a gift, not just a present.
