Low key and relaxing to stay in town and shop and dine out. Not far from the big cities, just enough to get out of town and not travel for days.

Great annual Outdoor Antique Sale. Quaint town, beautiful scenery, good food- you must have pie! A fun trip for the whole family.

Just wanted to voice my experience of the Best and the Worst shops to visit, purely based on the character of the shop owners. The absolute Worst was a shop called Sugar Grove Antiques. The owner wears all black, all the time, and he is the coldest shop owner I've ever encountered. When I attempted to ask about an item... More

If you enjoy looking at antiques then this is the place for you. We enjoy just browsing and looking for a new "old" treasure to take home. I did on one occasion get an old steamer trunk. It was painted an awful color of olive green, and we stripped off the paint as best we could and it revealed that... More

Fewer stores every year, but ones that were still open had nice selection, for the most part. Biggest drawback was that stores did not accept debit cards. They may sell antiques, but this is the 21st century! We don't carry a lot of cash when travelling so had to limit our purchases. Most stores would take checks, but don't carry... More

Attended this Flea Market on Fathers Day Weekend June 2012. It was little warm. But this is a very well laid out show. Upon arriving they have people on horse back to direct to parking. The later you get there the farther away you are from the show, but it is a very easy walk. The show covered serveral city... More

Walnut Iowa, just of I-80, used to have a nice little downtown that was well-kept and had many antique shops and a couple of cafes. Obviously, most of the shop owners have given up. The downtown is shabby, with many storefronts empty or with stores that are never open. In addition, other than Forget-Me-Nots and the Granery Mall the stores... More

I love to go antiquing and you will have a fun day of it when in Walnut, IA. There are several - many - antique stores on "Antique City Drive" (Walnut's Main Street) to go into. You park the car and just walk up and down the streets and casually go in and out of the stores. You can spend... More
