A Breath of Fresh Air


It's time for JB Knacker to take a bit of a break from the "daily grind." I stood at the threshold of the doors on the front of the shop just as the sun was going down this evening. I took in a long, deep, cold breath and said to myself (talk to myself a lot), "Saturdays only in January will be a good thing." I looked around the front room. It will feel good to move things around and scrub floors and fix trim and hang more chandeliers.

I hope you can make it to each and every Saturday in January! Although JB Knacker will be closed during the week throughout January, that does not mean that we won't be feverishly working to bring you fresh looks and wonderful specials throughout the shop! This Saturday, January 9th will have vintage Christmas gathered onto one medium-sized farm table and priced to fly out the door! The 7 foot harvest table will be hoisted into a different spot...as well some big cabinets (one that has yet to be brought in). A beautiful painted buffet will grace our front room and several vintage metal signs will be hung on the old shop walls. Inspiration boards will get their finishing tweaks and put out w/ other fun JB Knacker originals.

Our shop hours on January Saturdays will be 10am - 5pm. I've extended the closing time until 5pm as it's just a little harder to get an early start in this frigidly cold Iowa weather. But at JB Knacker we say, "bring it on!" JB's ready for the cold weather w/ hot coffee and homemade molasses cookies waiting for you. The shop is toasty warm inside and the great finds and prices will really warm your heart! Can't wait to see you this Saturday!! Brenda

Hi Brenda,
Happy New Year!!! Glad to hear you will be open until 5:00 on Saturday- it will give the out-of-towners a few more minutes to shop.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

How fun! Saturdays will be special I am sure. You always seem to have just the perfect touch. Love visiting there! And any other place we visit. The temps will be low, but at least this blizzard will be over. Have a GREAT Saturday.

Have left two messages and then they go poof! Must be the blizzard. Sounds like you will have a great time Saturday. Keep warm.
