J.B. Knacker....

This is Sweet, Brenda...{would you believe, this is her 6th child...the oldest, is 21... she doesn't look much older than 21, herself!}
Brenda is the Owner, of the Darling 'J.B.Knacker', in Gilbert, Iowa...{near Ames...} I have wanted, forever, to get to her store... Brenda, has shopped with me... we both did Junk Bonanza...a few years back... she still does.... I can't work the schedule out... but would love to go shop it!
Brenda is also a Blogger.... She is the sweetest Girl.... and has an amazing eye! I found some Wonderful Treasures.... and she turned me on to a load of gnarly old Lab Glass! It was Great fun! I would have loved to take her entire shop home... It was Darling!
Dale found a sweet, child's primitive chair, it's headed for Nashville.... We also went to the Story City Antique Mall.... it was Huge.... I ran across a favorite booth.... and who did it belong to? Sweet Laura! {Rusty Pumpkin} I bought a cool window, from her booth...and I also found, in another booth, a Giant...Gnarly...White Concrete Rabbit!!! Perfect for the Mad Hatter Booth!!!! 
It was all good....
Now...I get to unload...it's a few degrees, outside... oh dear...
Have a Great Day!

{Thanks Brenda, for such a nice time...I love everything... and thanks for the nice comment, this morning... It's amazing to me, that we, all of us...all of the glass...the bunny...the window... everything somehow missed total destruction... I have to wonder...if we wouldn't have been between the truck in front, and behind... what would have happened... could the truck behind me have seen those folks?....Could he have stopped in time... I believe everything happens for a reason...and...I believe in Angels....
My Love to ya...}
