    Amana Colony Art Gallery: Iowa Artwork

    by atufft Written Jul 30, 2013

    Amana has more than one fine gallery with locally produced arts and crafts for sale. I'm very fond of the midwest artwork, that's all I'm gonna say. Browse for yourself. Just through the old wood houses where they are on display is worthwhile.

    Various Antique Shops: Vintage Oak Furniture and Antique Collectibles

    by atufft Updated Jul 30, 2013

    The commune is gone, but the buildings are inhabited by shop keepers, many of whom stock fine collectibles and refinished antique oak furniture. I bought one and put into the back of my big trailer along with the commercial load of Iowa pork I had picked up near Waterloo.

    Various Amana Shops: Quilts and Textiles

    by atufft Written Jul 30, 2013

    One of the best things to do is let yourself browse the textiles at the various shops in Amana. This is pure Iowa at it's best. Don't expect bargain prices though. Very few of the textiles are actually made in Amana now, but in the past this was it!

    Art Oasis: Interesting local artists' gallery

    by yooperprof Written Sep 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice gallery that showcases the work of regional artists - many of whom teach or practice in nearby Iowa City/Cedar Rapids, but who keep their connections with this special place. The Oasis has a wide variety of arts and crafts, pottery, painting, sculpture, and non-traditional pieces as well.

    Notice the very plain, unadorned exterior of the gallery. That's the real Amana spirit there!

    you can't judge a gallery by its curb appeal

    The Herb Lady & Co.: Spices, honeys and teas

    by yooperprof Written Sep 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If it's light and natural and organic, the Herb Lady probably has it in stock. It's a good place to get all your favorite Burt's Beeswax products, and also a year's supply of organic nutmeg for all your baking needs.

    run by Amish-spice of the Spice Girls?
