That's Kathy, (Down Lilac Lane), in front of the shop. Inside & out we found some cool things on display, a few old treasures for sale and loads of t-shirts. Of course we each bought one. LeClaire has many shops; our favorite was Big River Antiques. Wish I'd taken pictures there but we were too busy admiring all of the unique items. Then it was off to Des Moines to set up for Junk Jubilee.
Junk Jubilee promoters Miccia and Jan and their staff were so hospitable. We appreciated being able to drive right into the building for unloading. It sure makes life easier. Look who I spotted near the front of the line:
Two of my Grayslake faves, Allison & Jenn! My photo is fuzzy but their mission was crystal clear - to pack a van with amazing goodies. It was a treat to see their familiar faces. Other fun sightings among the shoppers included The Vintage Pixies, Iowa Junk Gypsies and Ginger,(Virginia Rose).
Here are a few iphone snaps from our booth - I'll be posting more pics on my facebook page shortly.
A big THANKS to all who shopped our booth!
So what's next? On Monday I'm heading out to Brimfield, MA with my friend Margaret, (Lady Liberty's Treasure Chest). We are going not to sell, but to SHOP the mother of all fine fleas! I'll try to post some pics on Facebook during the week. Once I return, I'll be gearing up for the first Elkhorn Flea Market of the season, May 20th. Get it on the calendar now - you'll be sorry if you miss it!
