The Farmer's Daughter......

I know I have lamented about the fact that there are no primitive shops in Nod....But, 'tis not the whole truth....There was one shop in the next town nearest to us that I dearly loved, but it closed when the building in which it was located was sold. This past fall, however, it reopened in a new location....
It's called "The Farmer's Daughter," and is one of my all-time favorite haunts.
I'm sharing some photos of the shop from a few weeks ago (note green grass and absence of snow.....) I apologize for the Christmas theme so late, but I truly meant to do this weeks ago.....

Gloriously, hopelessly, primitive....nothing else.....

The Farmer's Daughter is located at:
630 Forest Street
Wausau, Wisconsin 54403

Generally, it is only open Saturdays, but the lovely proprietress, Kathy, is happy to make appointments and will accommodate you by opening when she can just for you.  She can be reached at 715-845-6366.  Tell Kathy I sent you - better yet, let me know you're coming and I'll meet you there! 


Wishing you all the joy and peace of a happy heart throughout the new year.....

Well Lady, you should be scolded for keeping such a fantastic looking Prim shop from us...were' you keeping it all to yourself? lol
I must get to her shop and you know what...I HAVE HEARD OF IT - the name anyway but never thought to look it up.

What an awesome shop! I bet you will visit as time allows. What did you get? Hmm?
"I wish you my friend and your family a bright awesome adventurous New Year!"

peggy said...

You are so lucky!!Primitive shops have totally disappeared from our area. There are a few booths at the craft mall but nothing original.

Happy New Year to you Robin, you have been a good blogging friend this year, always encouraging with your comments. Love from all of us in Michigan.

Traci said...

Oh my, that looks like a heavenly place to shop... Happy, Happy New Year to all in Nod! Blessings N Hugs,

Orange Sink said...

I hope that little shop can make it in this economy. Looks like a good primitive shop with some actual primitives in it...... a gem indeed! I may have to get my good friend Sue and make a trip over there! Will let you know when we do it would be awesome to meet you in person!!
Happiness and Blessings to you in the New Year!!

Prim Yumminess! Saw a bunch of stuff I would Love to have.Hope you have a wonderful New Year!~Amy

Shirlee said...

Okay Robin, we should do a joint giveaway here on your blog ... guess how many things Shirlee sees in these photos that she wants to have! Perhaps I need to post for prayer warriors now, lifting their voices in daily prayer that my house will sell & SELL FAST when we put it on the market in the spring. Uh-oh ... we now interrupt this comment for another giveaway idea! Everyone who signs up to be a prayer warrior for my house to sell & SELL FAST will be included in drawing for a super-duper giveaway when the closing papers are signed! Whoo-hoo! Anyway, the siren call of Wisconsin is growing louder & louder : ) Hugs, Shirlee

Prims By The Water said...

What a cute prim shop Robin! Love it!! Hope you have a great 2012 New Year! Hey Shirlee, Bob wants to know if you are you moving closer to us here in Michigan? Take care Robin..we are off to a New Years Eve auction. Janice

My mouth is watering...fab primitives all under one roof! Lucky Ducky you! Well, have a blessed 2012 from one Cranky to Another! tiffany

Anonymous said...

I love this!

I just stumbled upon THE CRANKY QUEEN's blog....and thought that was funny, and then I notice your blog title in the comments section ....THE CRANKY CROW!

That was just too funny, just had to swing on by here and check you out! Stop by to visit with me, if you like!

Ciao Bella.

Tolentreasures said...

What a great shop! Lucky you to have it so close! Blessings for the New Year, I have enjoyed our friendship this year!


Siobhan said...

Oh, lucky you! What a great shop. I especially love the wooden rocking horse. One of my neighbors has one in her window and I am dying to ask them about it, but only know them well enough to exchange brief pleasantries. They travel around the world with homes in Dubai and Switzerland, so I can only imagine where they picked up the horse.

Happy new year!

Angie said...

Looks like a wonderful shop to visit~thanks for visiting my blog and I appreciate your kind words. Happy New Year!

Cottonwood Lane Primitives said...

You are a good soul to share this find! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and are all prepared for the new job! ~Roberta

Cindy said...

First of all..Happy New Year! It has been my pleasure getting to know you and look forward to reading your blog this coming year!
I love this store and the turkey cracked me up! I can see why it is one of your favorites!

A Primitive Homestead said...

What a nice shop. That rocking horse is a prim find. I like to visit prim shops even if I am not buying. Thanks for the tour of Farmers Daughter. Wishes for a wonderful 2012 & fun adventures in your teaching my friend. Blessings!

Angie Berry said...

Hi Robin! I am your newest follower. I see that we share mutual prim friends, seeing where you comment on quite a few of the blogs that I follow so I decided to come over here and meet you. =]

What a lovely place that is! There are no prim shops in the state of Oklahoma... that any of us have found anyway. Now you will find prim pieces in certain shops or antique malls but to find a whole shop dedicated to prim is just not here. So consider yourself fortunate that you have such a neat shop to go to! =]

Have a delightful week my new friend~

~The Boyd Homestead Farm~ said...

Oh what a lovely shop! We had one like that near here, was my favorite store, but sadly the owners closed it due to the husband having Cancer :( Now i have to rely on Antique shops, auctions and online stores. Wishing you all the best in 2012!

Blessings, Trish

What a beautiful shop. I love prim shops. Shirlee is one of the most generous people I have ever seen.(not seen really, but virtually)lol and her work is exquisite. Blogland is a wonderful place to be.

tattered 'n torn prims said...

Valley Primitives Gift Shoppe said...

Oh I would have fun in there! That turkey was so cute!!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

That was a fun tour Robyn!
I miss going to Wausau...we went every year for the Badger State Games when my daughter was figure skating.
Come by for my give-away, I know you are a lucky one!

Cheryl said...

Hi Robin! I am one of your newest followers and thank you so much for visiting me. Thank you also, for sharing pictures of the wonderful shop. There is nothing even close here to relate to prim. I enjoy seeing all the beautiful prims as travel through blog land.

Have a Wonderful New Year
Peace and Blessings
Cheryl...Snatch JOY~!

I just love those little shops that set up in an old house. Lots of treasures to be found at those. I am with you on no prim shops around. We only have one and it is only open on the weekends. They just don't have enough business to stay open everyday. Not too many people in our area into the prim stuff. They call it junk around here. They just don't get it. We occasionally have some good farm auctions in the summer to go to. My hubs went to one that had an old cast iron outdoor bean pot that hung from a frame and the lady stood by it all day and never took her hand off of it. She really wanted it bad. If someone bid against her she would give them a nasty look, like this is mine, back off. My hubs was going to bid on it for me but he was afraid she would flog him. If I was there I would have gotten on the other side of it and held on just for fun.
Hope she enjoyed it.
Country at heart

Carolynn Cecilia said...

What a great store. As much as I love NYC I have to say that our vintage and thrift stores are quite overpriced. I need a small place like this that's tucked away from NYC.

Kathy said...

Oh I am feeling dizzy, lightheaded, I would count my blessings to have that shop here in the deep south. Primative is just not in the cards for our area. I love everything dearly in her shop, cute building. Thanks for sharing. Kathy

Vicki said...

OH WOW! What lovely things she has! Happy New Year!
