Day 7 on our road trips was pretty much all driving except for a couple of yarn shop pit stops. The first stop was in Des Moines, Iowa. While I shopped at Hill Vintage & Knits, Andrew and the kids went to Zombie Burgers for a bite to eat. They had the best french fries! I didn’t get to try the burgers though.
Hill Vintage & Knits was an interesting shop. They had vintage clothing, a few gift shop items and one and a half walls of yarn. But, I can always find something to buy and buy I did. I found some locally dyed yarn I just had to have, lol. And the best part? Well, see for yourself:
I got to see Ryan Gosling 😊😁
It was a quirky little shop but quirky is good! After eating and stretching our legs it was back on the road to Iowa City for a quick stop at Home Ec Workshop. Yes, this is a yarn shop and a fabric shop and an embroidery shop, it was really cute. If I lived her I would for sure be taking some sewing lessons. I loved the fabric selection as well as the yarn section. And to top it off? They had a coffee & bakery area too.
On to the next state!
