Every once in awhile you pass some place and the sign simply catches your eye. You just feel a deep sense of curiosity set in and you just have to stop. That was the case for me on a recent visit to Dakota City, the county seat in Humboldt County. I was driving through town and headed to lunch at Pasquales Pizza in Humboldt. However, I soon discovered Balloons Galore Trinkets and Treasures Thrift Shop and I had to make a quick detour.
It's located in an old brick building along the business district in town.
If you are going to advertise that you have "balloons galore", I expect that to be true. Turns out, this place does indeed have an exceptional selection of helium balloons for purchase.
Of course, they also advertise themselves as a thrift shop with lots of treasures and trinkets. That is also true. From furniture and kitchen accessories to clothing and trinkets, the entire place was packed with possible deals.
I found a couple of cute items that had some laughable insignia printed on them. I, however, did not buy them - so they are potentially still for sale if you hurry!
There was a large selection of Scentsy and Avon products as well as lots of different perfumes and colognes.
This was a quick but fun stop. Sometimes you just need to give into your curiosity. Often, that is when you find the best adventures.
