Everything handcrafted and home-grown!
Our Queen Anne Style Victorian was built in 1893 by John and Mathea Wrolstad--owners of a successful logging business.
As as a teenager Jerry was already helping his Mother and Aunt sort old clothing by weight, texture, and color in preparation for rug weaving. Jerry says, “cotton and wool make great rugs, but the real artistry of combining fabrics to create pattern, color, and texture—it all begins with my 1932 Singer hand crank sewing machine Model 99 . . . made of good old cast iron, and no plastic.”
Born and raised in New London, Jane moved to the Shawano area in 2010. She's been doing arrangements and wedding flowers for more than 20 years now Jane tells me, her husband Keith helps with all the wood cutting and new display ideas, while her daughter Krissy Samson created the business logo and facebook page Just Hangin' aRound." Jane and Krissy look forward to meeting you at the Halloween Weekend Victorian House Tour. Come browse their collection of wreaths and table centerpieces--and see how they've decorated our old Victorian House.
I am pleased Patti joins us again for this year's Halloween Weekend Victorian House Tour and Craft Show where you can see, touch, and enjoy her handcrafted Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets and Rings.
She'll show you silver plated Scent Necklaces with sterling chains--you can wear your favorite scent on the puffball inside, or carry your favorite gem, pearl, or trinket. Chat with Patti about her beautiful stone pencil pendants. Great gift ideas for the holidays!
You may recognize the name Garmon's Farm Market who has been growing produce for the Waupaca area since 2000. Lots of tasty things: sweet corn, tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, summer and winter squash, potatoes, onions and more. Garmon's Farm Market has been operating daily on the corner of Main St. and Fulton 9a to 5p for the last 17 years.
At our Victorian House Tour and Craft Show you can visit with Sandy and buy a variety of fresh and canned good eats, like Mike's Famous Garden Fresh Salsa (his secret recipe for 25 years). If you haven't tried it--you really should--its fantastic. There are 11 different jams and jellies, along with picked beets, onions, and pickles. Indian corn and popcorn too! Yummy.

Selene hand spins locally grown wool, and enjoys weaving, knitting, and crocheting. She delights in making colorful vintage-inspired embroidery on kitchen towels. Never a dull moment on their little homestead!
Each batch of goat milk soaps, lotions, salves, lip balms, and deodorants are hand-crafted using vegetable oils, pure essential oils and other natural ingredients including wild-harvested medicinals on their property.
Special Note From Victorian homeowner Linda:
I am using Selene's soothing eucalyptus and tea tree oil soap every day. I was suffering from heat rash this summer, and her fragrant antibacterial soap rescued my tender skin.
And most important, I want to tell you about Selene's gentle but effective Natural Insect Repellant repellent made of witch hazel, citronella, lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, bergamot and lemon grass essential oils. Now I am protected and smell good too!
