Photo shoots...and saying goodbye...

Ki Nassauer of 'Junk Camp fame, dropped by Sister's Garden yesterday to check out the shop...what a hoot...and you thought we were just a nobody lil' ol' shop somewhere in Iowa...sometimes you just have to give out the information...Iowa...the lost continent is found...

In this shot we are saying a fond farewell to the 'to die for' glider, as it will be living in Minnesota with Ki...lucky girl...Barb and Ki clinch the deal...you know Ki, that was supposed to go on my porch...

Now there's a crew of trash pickers if I ever did see one Jane and Sara are partners in crime with Ki, having just raced here after the What Cheer flea market, fun was had by all, as the intrepid junkers oooooed and ahhhhed their way through the shops...full truck and bags they're on the road again...who knows where they'll strike next, long way back to Minnesota!

As Billy Bob rides in the back seat enjoying he/her mint julip...ahhh...life on the trail...hope you got your brakes fixed girls...

Come to Iowa and see the hidden treasures that abound in the serene countryside of the lost continent...IOWA...

Iowa, the new Texas...

A baby with a head transplant sipping julip from a paper cup. What does that say?

Sister's reputation travels a long way. She does have some great, hard to find stuff.

Thought we'd keep that a secret for awhile. One of these days junkers will start recognizing Mo. As for now, seems to be our little secret. So glad that Sisters has gotten the recognition they so richly deserve -- & you certainly have helped. Jan

What a wonderful, feel good post! It must be so much fun when "the gang" gets together like this!

And I now know of the word julip! Just have no idea what it really means! Like a milkshake? Thickshake?

OMG! Did you guys know Ki was coming? That's great! I bet Barb was beside herself! I hope she took a lot of pictures of Barbs shop to put in her new magazine!

I love the lost continent of Iowa. My ancestors founded the town of Elkhart in Polk County. They formed a wagon train and headed west from Indiana in the 1840s.
