Started selling antiques out of my barn in the mid 80's. Old signs, milk cans, cupboards, dressers etc. In November 87' - moved into a shared space in our local antique mall. Soon outgrowing the shared space, evolving taste, & local demand headed me down the road to selling to the Michigan resort crowd. High end cottage chic, Old Hickory, Rittenhouse rustic lodge furniture...

By the late 90's commercialism killed the "Lodge look" so My other half and I moved to Wisconsin ( Land of Laverne & Shirley and Lienenkugel). Living in Wisconsin, and now Minnesota, is like being in a time capsule. Garrison Keillor's Lake Woebegon is real
and we are living it.

We are dealers in Country furniture, folk art, farm junk, & unusual items. Residing amongst the Amish in the Harmony Minnesota area, we are blessed with being able to buy most of our stock right off the farm & within 75 miles of home.
