The Junk Asylum...








Had to deliver soaps to The Asylum the other day, so I wanted to show some of the new dealers in Lorie's shop...over 75 now...she's on her way, as the shop is filled with busy dealers and buyers, all running around playing with the toys...ok, I was one of them too.
There were tons of things I could've walked out of there with...BUT...
Well, you know the rest of the story.

Enjoy the pseudo-shopping...I'm going back!!!

Looks like a wonderful place to shop! Wish I could go right now. Someday I may visit my aunt in Iowa, who knows!

I'm glad to see Lori is doing so well! I've heard Sister's is too, and Gatherings, Polly Anns, Fern Hill... I think things are really pickin' up!!!! Iowa truly is the best place to shop... We are so very blessed!
Take care of your sweet self! And, keep stirrin' that soap!!!!
Can't wait to see ya! Hope you can make it to the Mid West Show, on Sunday!!!!

Wow what a place to lose (or is that gain) a few hours! It is crammed with the good stuff! I have scrolled back and forth through the photos a few times trying to notice the little things too!

How refreshing to see the store stock is actually good old stuff! So many places out here are loaded up with not so old stuff, more along the lines of "decorator" stuff from China. Iowa looks like a picker's paradise!

I realized how easy it would be to shop from your photos!
Browsers paradise!
With the nice weather, some good garage and estate sales this weekend around here.
Gotta go.

Peace.
