Getting Ready for Ringle Harvest Day

When we moved out to the country, I had a dream of opening up an antique (junk) shop and studio.  It was 17 years ago that I set up my first sale out here - in our garage.  Every year since, I have organized an event for the 2nd weekend in October.  For 10 of these years it was held here at our farm.  In that time I set up and sold in our garage, barn, old outbuilding, pole shed and eventually my own little shop and studio that my husband built me.   However, we outgrew our farm with the amount of vendors that wanted to set up.  Also, my insurance agent advised that we shouldn't "invite" all those people to our farm.  So, we moved it down the road a bit to the whole town of Ringle. 

Anyway, I have a blog about this event that you can check out if you want.

I have been "diggin" up some primitive treasures for my booth.  Here are a few before pictures of some of the items I will be bringing.





By the way, the trailer is half loaded already.  If you live close - you should come on over to Ringle.  We are about 12 miles east of Wausau right on Hwy 29. 

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
