Every mom deserves a “me day” every once in a while, right? One of my favorite ways to spend a solo weekend afternoon is by taking a trip to a vintage market or craft show. The perfect activity for a weekend day is browsing treasures with a mug of hot coffee in hand. Check out this list of Fall Markets in the Iowa City Area.
