I think I told you we went
on a buying trip to Iowa
this past weekend.
Well, you cannot hardly drive from
Illinois to Iowa without planning to
stop by Mike and Frank's shop,
(You know.... from the History Channel's hit TV series.)

We planned to get there earlier on Saturday
but we ran by the Junk Jubilee
one more time and then headed to
a little town called Story City,
just north of Des Moines,
and spent a few hours at
a great antique mall there
called Carousel Antique Mall.
Stop by if you are ever in the area.
Great finds and a wonderful friendly staff!
So ... we did not get to Le Claire
until almost 7 pm.
We new they would be closed.
But we couldn't resist checking it out
and taking some photos.
Did you know they are right on
the mighty Mississippi River?
Their front window view looks
right out onto the river.
(Is it just me or did you think they
were located out on a rural country road?)
Location, location, location!

Nice little shop.
Wish we could have met
Frank, or Danielle or Mike.
Maybe next time.
