    ISU windmills

    Does anyone know where I can find one to buy? You know the 6 ft tall or so windmills painted up in ISU colors. I have saw Iowa ones but never an ISU one.

    Always someone selling them in the parking lots at the games. I swore I saw one at Earl May one time.

    Re: ISU windmills

    I've seen them in 'farm stores' like TSC & Thiesens. And, I thought I saw one at Shopco once...

    I haven't been there recently, but I have seen them at Earl May before.

    I have looked there, but all they have is Iowa ones. I guess the ISU ones were sold out.

    Re: ISU windmills

    Earl May on Douglas in Des Moines has a beautiful 8 foot ISU Windmill - unsure of the price but it is fairly substantial and very good looking. It's probably not cheap but it looks great.

    Most I have seen in stores were in the $300 range

    Re: ISU windmills

    I've always seen them at the Earl May across from KMart in Ames.

    Re: ISU windmills

    There's one in Earl May in Waukee by Stivers Ford as well. There is some older guy from Winterset that builds them and walks around tailgate lots selling the smaller wind Cyclone stuff but I have seen his windmills and they are pretty cool. Not sure what the price but I could try and find out more when I talk to a friend today.
