Owner Brenda Schwager has been scrounging around

for fun vintage items since college...maybe even longer. 

But the notion to actually sprout a business from the good old stuff didn't surface 'til after college, marriage and several kids. 

Just finishing up 14 years in business, JB Knacker is loaded with the best vintage wares around...antique

and painted furniture, architectural salvage, tarnished silver, chandeliers, funky glass ware, ephemera, retro and mid century pieces... all at really fair, some might say "good" prices! 

JB Knacker is a vintage home store located in Gilbert, Iowa.  The brick and mortar shop was conceived in November of 2005 after 4 years as a successful occasional sale that was run from a working barn. 

Now housed in a 130 yr old, 1800 sq ft Main Street storefront, the business has grown and thrived

through tough economic times.
