shopping in Iowa
I'm new here, but I've learned so much from other gardenweb sites, I hoped maybe you could help me, please!
I've moved to Iowa City, Iowa, a couple years ago and have been trying to furnish and decorate my home. I love antiques, but really prefer to see things in person before buying. I've gotten stuff off the internet, but you never really know til it gets delivered if the item is really what you want, you know what i mean?
Does anyone know anywhere around here for antiques / vintage items, particularly furniture? I've been to Kalona, but really, it's mostly knick knacks and kitsch, not a whole lot of furniture or decent things. I've eyed a few auctions, but they are much more "miss" than even "hit and miss".
I go to Chicago, but it is a haul (and things are PRICEY!)
Anybody with any suggestions? My poor house is bare!
Thanks for any advice; I'm looking forward to shopping!
