Rumor has it...

Rumor has it that the original idea for the Mississippi Valley Partners’ “85 Mile Garage Sale” (now 100 miles) was presented by a member from Stockholm.  We know this is true, since we know the guy!  We’re not naming names, but we’ll admit to being quite proud of his contribution in initiating such a thoughtful and extraordinary post-Earth Day event.

This Friday through Sunday, May 4-6, we are excited about another 100 Mile Garage Sale.   At A+ Antiques & Oddities in Stockholm, we have already done the hunting for you.  We invite you to stop by and see what we’ve found. 

Browse the varied selection of items that we’ve gathered which are handcrafted, have history, or offer investment.  Take a look at the supplies we have for your special event, art/craft, or project that fit your eclectic style.  You’ll find ideas to help you imagine the possibilities.  Select a thoughtful example of your respect for heritage and hopes for the future with a keepsake gift for the graduate, newlyweds, new baby, or dear friends.  One-of-a-kind items are always appreciated.   Use vintage or antique items to reflect your artistic side.  Integrate natural materials into your d├ęcor or wardrobe to display your environmental side.  Enjoy some memories and feel good about your choice to re-home a special treasure.

Our goal is to support your practical side in a low-key atmosphere.  You’ll love our quirky shop which is easy to find right on Highway 35.  Watch for the huge garage door. 

We’d love to see you this weekend,
The Team at A+ Antiques & Oddities

PS  Gentlemen find items they like here, too.  We have lots of guy stuff!
