I decided to do a little shopping, as sales tax here in Iowa is 2.5% lower than California...
- Black Converse low Chuck Taylors
- Columbia fleece hoodie from Younkers
- Two Hawkeye t-shirts
The crowds really weren't that bad... at Merle Hay Mall, which is one of the older enclosed malls in DSM. I heard it was insane at Jordan Creek out in Dallas County.
