Consider yourself invited...

Every now & again I feel the need to reboot & refresh my booth at the Hixton Schoolhouse Antique Mall in Hixton, Wisconsin.  Now, this is not when I bring a basket or so to add -- this is an all out, down & dirty, move it all about, shake, rattle & roll -- shift the room redo.  So -- that was me Friday night -- I arrived at 5:15 as the mall closed with "I mean business" on my mind -- within 20 minutes, the first furniture was getting pushed and shoved about my booth....at 10:00 I called it a day -- arriving back the next morning a bit after 7:00 to finish it up before the mall's doors opened.  And -- I did it without breaking a single item (my usual number of casualties is 3).  So -- if you haven't been over in a bit --- stop on by.  Meadowview Farm (dealer "SPY") has two car fulls and a full trailer of vintage goodies added!

The mall is located on Elder Street in Hixton --
and is open10-5 every day. 
It is right off I94 between Black River Falls & Eau Claire.
I might guess it to be perhaps the second largest multi-dealer mall in Wisconsin -
with 90 vendors.
There are 3 other antique stores in Hixton -- so it is a day trip!

Now -- if I could only get inspired to clean my house today...
hmmm - couch looks mighty inviting.

Dave & I will be behind the counter at Hixton this Saturday, October 29. I am already started to think Christmas for my booth -- set up a little tiny bit of it already as I know dealers that buy from me are on the search now.

Hi Kari!

Hixon is my favorite stop every time I head to Minneapolis! I ALWAYS come home with the van packed! I have been shopping your booth for quite some time now. What a small world it was when I found you in blog land last summer! If you are still having your barn sales, I would love to be able to make one next year!

Hi Kari, Just stopped at your booth today. Two of your heart shaped cake pans and a little white basket have found a new home here at Shady Grove Farm. I might have to go back this weekend for the little white metal stool...and probably a handful of other treasures! It will have to get me through the winter to your next barn sale.
