The doors opened at 10am, and already at 10:05, every spot in the parking lot was filled. Bouncy houses were scattered around the property and food was being prepped to celebrate the grand opening of The Picker Knows at our new West Des Moines location. Formerly at 221 SW 63rd Street in downtown Des Moines, we have moved to an even bigger and better location in West Des Moines.
Situated at the old Dahl’s store on Prospect Road, many new and returning customers and antique enthusiasts came to see our 25,0000-square foot showroom full of unique antiques and collectibles. And just outside with a turnout of over 1,500 people, Cops Against Cancer served our patrons free food. We also hosted a classic car show with 25 cars showcased. Entertainment was abuzz for all ages!
With our space, we’ve also expanded our services. We buy antiques, estates, cars–just about everything! We also offer retail space for you to rent and sell your own valuables. That’s not all. The Picker Knows also has an auction and event center available for rent whether you want to host an auction or special event. Our knowledgeable staff can also give you a personal appraisal for your antique goods. Browse through our site for more details about these services or come in our store to talk to us personally about what we can help you with!
Come to our new store to see what finds are in stock and meet our friendly, helpful staff to find the treasures you never knew you needed! Make a special addition to your apartment décor or antique collection with one of our collectible finds. Our first day was a blast, and we’re looking forward to the years to come building new relationships with our customers and maybe even new locations!
