A Little Town Called Gilbert

Gilbert is a little town outside of Ames, Iowa and it is home to JB Knacker.  This store is a wonderful place to shop for great vintage and salvage pieces to accessorize your home.  I came out of there with a few treasures such as vintage books, tags, trays and more.    
Also, my big news is that some of Vintage No. 35's necklaces are being sold at JB Knacker.  I am so excited and thrilled to have my pieces for sale at JB Knacker.   

I bought this little slip for my "Betsy" dress form.  Now my dress form looks very pretty!

Here are a few of my necklaces on her displays!

After a morning of buying some goodies and selling my jewelry it was off to Ames where I wrapped up a great day shopping along Main Street and eating the best pizza at Great Plains Pizza.
