Our Story

Welcome to Turkey River Mall, where we bring history to life through a captivating blend of old, new, and gently used treasures. Our journey began with the vision of owner Becky Dietzler, who saw potential in the historic hotel building nestled in the heart of Elkader, IA. Little did she know that this building would evolve into a hub of nostalgia and creativity, known as Turkey River Mall.

As the proud custodians of the original 1897 hotel building, we embarked on a transformational journey. What started as a plan to convert the space into an office soon blossomed into something much more remarkable. Drawing inspiration from the building's rich history, we decided to honor its legacy by breathing new life into its rooms. Thus, the concept of vendor stalls emerged, each with its own distinctive character and charm.

Our passion lies in offering a curated selection of diverse products from our 60 dedicated vendors. From antiques that whisper tales of bygone eras to contemporary treasures that captivate modern hearts, our collection embodies a captivating fusion of past and present. Re-purposing goods is not just a skill; it's our specialty. We take pride in finding beauty and value in items that others might overlook.

Within our 14,000 square feet of carefully curated space, you'll uncover a captivating world of possibilities. Each vendor's stall is a treasure trove waiting to be explored. Immerse yourself in a realm of gifts and collectibles, where the past and present converge seamlessly. Discover antique furniture that tells stories of generations past, alongside primitives that carry the rustic charm of simpler times. Delight in the nostalgia of toys that once ignited childhood imaginations, and find the perfect home décor piece that speaks to your unique style.

But our offerings don't stop there. Venture deeper and encounter a world of geological wonders – rocks, minerals, and fossils that bridge the gap between Earth's ancient history and modern aesthetics. Browse through an eclectic array of apparel, jewelry, books, clocks, shoes, purses, candles, and wax melts, letting your senses guide you through a captivating sensory experience.

Our commitment to offering an all-encompassing experience is reflected in the variety that we present. From rugs that warm your feet and mirrors that reflect your personality to lotions, soaps, and fragrances that pamper your senses, we invite you to indulge in the pleasures of the past while embracing the luxuries of today.

At Turkey River Mall, we're not just a store – we're a journey through time, an exploration of style, and a celebration of the human spirit's endless creativity. We invite you to step into our world, visit us at 102 S Main in Elkader, IA, and experience the magic for yourself. If you have any questions or wish to connect, feel free to reach out to us at (563) 245-3995. Join us as we transform history into art, and dreams into reality.

This building is filled with treasures. It was fun to look at the architecture of this old hotel too! Be prepared for climbing stairs (3 floors & basement) though!

I just can't get enough of the Turkey River Mall! It's like xmas going thru each room on every floor... there's so many wonderful treasures to see. It's like going back in time and reliving my childhood seeing all the antiques and trinkets from the past. I have found some wonderful treasures over the years. But my very favorite part is going thru the fantastic collection of rocks and fossils. There's always something new to see... And I never leave without adding to my personal collection, or my grandkids. We absolutely love the Turkey River Mall! ?? Testimonial written by Joddy Roys on this site.
