Time for Shopping!!! >>>>> and new antique shop in Des Moines

Being winter, its time to shop and source new materials for my Mechanical Romance line.  So after work today Jerry and I visited the newest antique mall/ shop in Des Moines... Ye Old Antique Shoppe  located  at 3005 Merle Hay Road.  It's next door to a locksmith and across the street from the gas station on the corner of Merle Hay and Urbandale.  It's just been open for a few weeks and they are still getting some vendors in and settled, but it has real potential and I've added it to my mental list of places to check out every few months.

Best part is the owner Chip is very personable and friendly... so if you are in the area and in a antique / flea market mood, give it a go.  (SHOP LOCAL!)

This weekend is also the the flea market at the Fairgrounds, 9-4pm at the 4-H building, and also this weekend at the fairgrounds is another antique show ANTIQUE SPECTACULAR  - 
Now there seems to be a cost for this, but heck the big flea market is absolutely free.

So My fingers are crossed I'll find something junky to make into great jewelry this weekend!
