Our awesome friend Jayce from @a_beautiful_purpose lives in Iowa and we met a few years back in California. Since then we try to meet up in her neck of the woods for some quick and dirty Junkin. This time, she lined up a barn dig that we were happy to oblige in clearing out. The barn belonged to Larry’s grandparents and was falling over. In the 1950s,the new quonsut hut was built for storage and the barn sat. That was our destination… And it includes goodies from the hut too.
We carefully climbed to the second story and instagrammed live the feed of that dig. Not sure how that works so much but did any over you see all the racoon s%!T? It was quite impressive to say the least. But we found some great old gears and wooden blocks up there. Jayce scored a huge window piece we knew we could not get out.
Finally, we got to walk around the rest of the property and my second favorite part, the cows. The larger cow was super friendly and headed over each fence visit. You can see by the pic. It definitely was one of the highlights of the trip if not ever!
If you want more authentic vintage in the Midwest , the real stuff like you find here with us, get to A Beautiful Purpose in West Branch, Iowa. Cute town, excellent shop and friend.

Headed to Junkstock for just about the full three days of the event. We made sure to visit most of the vendors to support, shop and check out what is new, hot or unique to bring back to the shop. There were pretty cool farm and primitives, we learned alot and made lots of friends that we new on Instagram but had never seen the faces. Several people sent us on leads to future places to stop along the way. Junkstock is fantastic because it is big enough to spend three days but small enough to grow our Vintage family.
Here are some picks:
We ate from The Rude Shrimp Co. All three days. Incredible food and shrimp choices.
Plasma cut cans from. Sean and Jenny Olson of Roadside Relics
Hot air Ballon rides on Day One. They were beautiful in the evening.
Making our big Midwest trip now. We left yesterday and made it to Omaha. What a treat already. We were referred to a shop in a part of town and the owner just picked a ranch.. We were able to rummage his truck and the small renal car already has locker baskets, some concrete swans and an old, old rake. Woo-hoo Nebraska. Tomorrow is the Husker game. Looking forward to the red sea tomorrow.

We are excited about finally getting our remodel underway. We have been in the space for 2 years and after opening Landlord still had projects of his own to complete in store and then outdoor. We never had the chance to truly get the store in place. This month we are closing the last 2 weeks in January to remodel the shop and are excited about our reopening February 1st.
