Collecting artifacts and the history of people, places or things are my favorite hobbies. Ancestry and collections of photos, memorabilia and stories go hand in hand. Enjoy!

Remodeled farm house
This charming house with a big front porch didn't used to look like this at all. It was home to a very large family for many years and was showing its age when the present owners decided it was the ideal location for a shop and proceeded to completely redo the interior as well as the exterior. Weekend Cottage is conveniently situated east of Clearwater, north of Becker and Big Lake and south of St. Cloud. Lake people make it a regular stop both coming and going from their weekend retreats. This shop has also attracted a regular following of shoppers from the twin cities. So this little house with its out building called the Lodge/aka garage is a busy place from Friday to Sunday all year. A group of about 15 dealers fill it to the brim with interesting and unique goodies which make this a must stop for treasure hunters.
