The Sisterhood...

A Sisterhood, what does it mean...best friends forever, BFF...you know what I mean...Barb and I have been just that, true to our nature and true to our dreams. Sharing the good times and an encouraging words in the bad. Both loving what we do, sharing our tales of junking expeditions and the neat stuff we just had to keep for ourselves...but all too soon brought to the stores for resale...it's the way of it you know.

But simple dreams and the cooperation of friends and the willingness of the people to shop and share stories with the girls at Sisters'... it's what has made them what they are today...tried and true is what it's all about. Regular hours through thick and thin...unless the snowplow hasn't been 'round yet...the girls always have the gates open for your viewing pleasure.

Taking every spare moment to go on that shopping spree to find all the neat stuff that makes Sisters' and Bloom the icons they are in our little corner of the world...IOWA...and like I always say...the lost continent...People tend to think of Iowa as one of the forgotten states, backwards and Podunk(is that really a word)...but us'ns here in the Midwest have strong values, honest, old-fashioned respect for our neighbors and hard work to make a living, especially in these trying times...and no this is not where they grow potatoes...that's Idaho!!!


And no...Iowa is NOT flat... it's rolling hills and valleys make it the perfect country backdrop for a little shop called Sister's Garden and Bloom. A place that's been 'round for 15+ years...where lasting friendships have formed and smiling faces leave with treasures of old...


Come visit Iowa, you'll be surprised at it's humble nature and rich heritage, beautiful landscapes and friendly country folk...we may be a little behind the trends, but not at Sisters', current trends are a thrill and always researched through these weathered doors.


Come say hello to my friends Barb and Deb and Elaine and the other Barb...you'll be glad you did...

I would dearly love to visit Sisters but don't have a truck that I can depend on 100%. Afterall, if I got stranded on the lost continent, how would I ever get home?

Someday I hope to convince Old Dog to leave the homestead again and come out your way -- your pictures are so inviting!

I've driven through Iowa a few times and just loved it! I've never seen clouds roll in with more color and excitement than when driving across Iowa during a thunderstorm/tornado ( and I live in Missouri where we have our share of storms!). Next time I'm up that way, I'll be sure to find where your lovely, quaint shop is located and stop by, and hopefully leave with a treasure or two!

Sisters has such a warm atmosphere! These photos are a brilliant way of feeling and seeing Sisters even for those so far away (like me) who will never see it for real!

I would love to visit Sisters! I am so ensconced in Florida that I rarely leave long enough to attend important family gatherings. Iowa is lovely - I have driven through the state and tarried long enough to know that REAL people live there.

My Iowa friend, I am loving that door and the mums, already giving me ideas for the Fall show, that I'm so hoping you will get to make it to. Hope you have a great week, T
