My daughter Kalissa has her shirt business and occasionally she takes shirts to Maker’s Market in Sumner Iowa. They sell them for her. Kalissa called me last week, asked what I was doing and if I wanted to ride along so she could deliver shirts. I said sure. It’s my favorite antique/decor spot to go to so how could I pass up a chance? Anders, my grandson, came along.
The store was decked out for… Christmas.
There was so much to see.
…almost too much to see. HA!!
Kalissa and I roamed the store but both of us were not thinking of Christmas yet.
I have almost bought this cabinet there the soap is displayed so many times I love it.
The shop is great as it has a wide variety of things. The antiques are for sale…
There is jewelry, wine, soaps…
Kalissa and I always like the clothing that’s here too. I tried to get that buffalo plaid in my size but it was sold out. Drat.
Several times Kalissa and I both said, we want to come back once we have our Christmas decorations up.
We’re a family that doesn’t really do Christmas decorating until after Thanksgiving.
It really did feel festive.
I’m more of an antique girl than a small decorations girl so coming back in two weeks when some of the decoration stuff has been purchased and it’s easier to see the antiques sounds perfect to me.
I think I might get a couple of ornaments that were on the tree to the left. I also was thinking about two of the red candles. I already have somewhere to put them.
I love that you can easily buy a gift here…one that’s unique.
The aesthetic of the whole building is perfect for the shop.
See the gray bag on the floor? Kalissa has it and loves it!
I loved this drawer and am tempted to buy it. Little cross-stitch pieces would fit in there so nicely.
I didn’t see a price on it and I didn’t want to move things around a lot to get to it.
Pretty, pretty, pretty.
Kalissa and I both loved the “Oh Holy Night” piece. So tempting!!
The way it was displayed was so cute too.
Admittedly, I got sad for about half a second after going. I love this style of decorating but with all the little kids in my house, it’s really something that isn’t practical. Then I reminded myself that I would MUCH rather have the kids and limited decor.
I loved the little white cabinet.
These little candy canes really caught my eye. I should do something like that with the childcare kiddos. They could wrap fabric on candy canes.
Oh so many things…
I wish I had a bigger house and a bigger pocket book!!
