This hotel-turned-mall in Elkader houses antiques to remind you of days passed, items to add to growing collections, books that will transport you to another time and place, and just about anything and everything else you can imagine. And it's all for sale in one building. Jingling of bells and a friendly hello from the store clerk behind the tall, wooden counter and a complimentary cup of coffee make you feel welcome when you visit.
Start from the ground up, by first weaving your way around the treasures in the lower level before making your way back up to the first floor. Ascend the grand staircase, lined with both decorative and useful items for any home, as you wind your way through the remaining stories of the mall. There are seemingly endless rooms of sparkly jewelry, fun trinkets, and dazzling antiques to sort through.
Flip through the pages of books, tinker with toys, or try on clothing of various styles that can be found from the basement all the way up through the third story. Find patterns and materials for your next crafting project, and beauty products to revive you and make you feel like new. Rooms once bustling with hotel visitors and travelers are now occupied by intriguing items from the old to the new and everything in between.
Spend a while meandering through the floors and rooms at the Turkey River Mall in Elkader to uncover and discover small town treasures you'll want to call your own.
