Here is the shop before it was “The Shop” — when it was just a lonely and vacant building. It was across the street from my first shop in Kalona, Iowa. I had stared at this beautiful brick-and-mortar location for years. I had dreamed of a large storefront for my business, but knew that I couldn’t do it alone.

So, I sent this photo to my junker friends: Karen, the rambunctious “wiser” woman that joins me on every adventure, Emma, a young and spirited entrepreneur and Kate, the classiest junker I had ever met. And, as fate would have it… they loved the building. They loved the giant front windows. They loved the brick facade. They. Loved. It. All.
