Why we are closed

First I would like to thank all of the loyal customers that came by every week- your well-wishes, advice, and kind words- they mean the world to me. You will always have a special place in my world. But as you know the world, unfortunately, doesn’t run on well-wishes. I poured my heart into the store to give you the best products I could find while carving a niche out and trying to make a living. The kindness I exuded wasn’t always reciprocated by others looking to give a small business owner a shot.

Keeping true to what I believe in many of the merchandise that I purchased for sale I donated to those less fortunate. And while I search for another way to make my dent in the universe I want remind you that everything you have is the result of someone taking a chance on you. At some point, someone helped you out and gave you the chance to succeed. While I continue to search for that someone, I want you to remember that it’s not what you wear on the outside- what you drive or how much money you have- it’s who you are on the inside that matters. And right now, I’m the richest person in the world.

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!
