Floral, antique store grand opening

Dave sits at an antique poker table. In an earlier era, only cards and chips were allowed on the table. This style poker table has a disk at each corner for one to place other items, such as drinks. This was a common style in the late 1880s, though few exist today. This one came from a pub in Three Rivers, Minn.

This weekend marks the grand opening of a new enlarged facility for Colonial Acres Floral and Antiques on the south side of Oskaloosa.

The three-person staff at the Meriden Chiropractic office can be described as three peas in a pod. The close-knit connection between the women is evident and makes for a friendly and relaxed atmosphere for patients.
