Trading Co. Fall sale, Railroad Bill’s Grand Opening set for Oct. 13

We are pleased to announce Raccoon Forks Trading Company's fall sale event and the Grand Opening for our pals and neighbors Railroad Bill’s Dining Car on Saturday, October 13.

The event will feature several marked down selections from RFTC’s carefully curated antique inventory.

Railroad Bill’s Dining Car will provide the food and drink – including items from the new Railroad Bill’s food truck—and live music from some of the best up-and-coming local musicians.

We are also recruiting other antique, vintage and arts & crafts vendors to sell at the event. If interested, please call RFTC at (515) 809-1715.

Storefront rehab project progress

Come see the progress we've made on the storefront rehabilitation project at Raccoon Forks Trading Co. and Railroad Bill's Dining Car! Windows and doors were recently installed on the east and west storefronts, and the scaffolding has been removed. Renaissance Restoration, of Galena, Ill., is doing the work on the building (built c. 1920), which has also included rebuilding the façade with the building's original brick and repairing the architectural detailing. The project was inspired by our enthusiasm for history and preservation, and our belief that the outside of our stores should reflect the quality of our carefully curated antique collection and the classic diner experience to be found inside. Here is a look at before and after photos:
