Midwest Modern Home Tour + Shop Hop 

SEPTEMBER 21 – 22, 2019


Check out all of the city's best mid-century stores in one day! Participating shops will serve snacks and drinks and offer in-store specials. Each shop will be open from 12–6 PM. This year's shops include AOK Antiques, Atomic Garage, Funky Finds, Modville, Rogue Planet, Rumors, Skylabs, and 35th St. Antiques. Then grab a drink at Hello, Marjorie from 7–9 PM! The shop hop is free to attend.


The annual autumn home tour is a self-guided tour of mid-century homes in Des Moines and its neighboring suburbs. Each house on the tour is carefully selected to showcase how real people decorate with vintage and mid-century in their modern lives. Many of the featured homes boast stunning architecture and history, while others simply demonstrate how mid-century furniture and decor can add timeless elegance to any style. This fall's tour will feature several mid-century homes in Greater Des Moines. UPDATE: HOME TOUR SOLD OUT.
