High Amana General Store, Amana, Iowa






What do you need to know about this store? Lots of awesome goodies. The parents & brother loved all the items we have given them. jellies, jams, sodas & soaps. The lady there was super friendly, so helpful and had such great stories to tell us of the area. Do you want to visit the "Amana Colonies"? As you know when we travel the hubby does tons of research. Looking up what is a "must see" & all that jazz. We only really had time for the store & the Amana Woolen Mill (I'll show that soon), maybe next time we are in that area will have a chance to see more. Have you visited there before? Beth ( :

Hello Beth, this Amana store does have a lot of awesome goodies. The soaps sound wonderful. I usually do the research on our trips and my hubby just goes with it. Wishing you a happy day and new week ahead!

Beth, have been there. I find it interesting that a society of folks so closed to the outside world really knows how to market to us!

You’ve gotta love the gum disposal thingy. I would love to have had that all those years I was keeping the suspension room.
I've been there many years ago on my way to visit my daughter who lived in Des Moines. It is a fabulous store! Amana Colonies has so many.

I am a old gal after your hubby's own heart, research research :-), I have never heard of the Amana colonies and shall whistle back over to their site when I have a few more minutes to explore-so cool. You have such great adventures and I feel lucky that you share.

I love old time stores like this one. And I've heard of the Amana area but not sure where...perhaps in a magazine. My great uncle had a old time store in the village they lived in and I have fond memories of it. He even had a large glass case with a huge round of cheddar cheese in it. And glass jars with penny candy...the best part. :) I'm going to check out the link to Amana now. Have a super day!

I really like finding places like this. It's quite a step back in time.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ...
