Joe and I hopped in the car Friday and drove four hours south to Des Moines to attend this vintage shop crawl on Saturday. It was great to get out of Minneapolis because it was covered in about six inches of fresh snow. Down in Des Moines, it was already spring: green grass, trees beginning to bud and flowers blooming. We started our day at Beaverdale Vintage and ended at Hank's Fuzzy Guitars. Starting tomorrow and all week, I'll be sharing *tons* of photos from these two shops as well as Funky Finds and Domestica. I'll also share some of the retro goodies we picked up along the way. On Friday I'll wrap up with a list of other places to see, shop and eat at in Des Moines. Stay tuned!
