Road Trip - Gold 'n Country - Weyauwega Wisconsin


The start of a few days away with CG and friends happened to coincide with the Christmas Open House at Gold'n Country Gifts in Weyawega.  How fortunate for moi!  The shop is located between New London and Waupaca, pretty much in the middle of ...nowhere. 

 I'm not usually a fan of shops that mix old and new, but I always find something to love at Gold'n Country.  The main building is loaded with vignettes featuring well-chosen new items, with some genuine oldies mixed in. Another building houses vintage furniture, and the yard is filled with a wonderful mix of primitives and garden art. 

There weren't many Halloween items left but I loved this funnel Jack o'lantern
...and this one

There were bird cages...

...this charming old wagon

...and a bottle tree

But this was the Christmas open house and inspiration was everywhere.

This watering can looked so festive in a most natural way.

My favorite pieces were the snowmen.  
This one is made from a bucket.

...and this one has old propane tanks for the clever!

That really is frost on his head so we can only conclude that his name is 'Frosty'
If you are ever in the area, you must stop and shop at Gold'n Country.
You won't be disappointed. 
I'll show you my finds in the next post.
