Quality Awaits at a Rural Antique Escape

Gordon ’s _ Gordon Kirsten, how long have you been in business? How did you get started? I was a dealer, and doing shows Part Time since 1972, and increased my time commitment to Full Time since 1981. We are now in our 47th year! What changes have you seen over the years open? Customers tastes as well as my own are always changing! Fads always push prices up, only to fall once the fad disappears. I have always gone with my knowledge that “high quality tells and sells!” You will see proof of this in what has been purchased, and is incredibly displayed in over 5,000-square-feet of shop space, filling 2 levels of a heated, circa 1888 old historic barn! What do you most Love about your Industry? There is always something new to explore! Every call to check out an item, collection, estate, or auction is like a treasure hunt! I love to learn the history, and past stories of where “what are the roots of where an item is from.” It is a great reward for me to find the rare items, or finding something in more pristine condition than I have ever seen before! I love making these discoveries available to my customers. What are some of the common myths you come across in your business? That we buy at Rummage sales!? Our quality far exceeds anything usually available at yard sales. I have been asked is this a Hobby Business?! When you come in, you will see that I have much more invested, time and money-wise to be just a hobby…it is a full time commitment. The last common myth I can think of is “that values always go up”. Sometimes, Yes, but buy something because you love it, not as an investment. What message would you most like to share with people? We have GREAT Stuff! I am helpful and have extensive knowledge about all I carry, and would love to share it with you! Now is a perfect time to stop in, Our Annual

Christmas Sale takes place December 2 through 24, with 20% off the entire Barn shop. Antiques at Gordon’s is a great place to do your Christmas shopping! What would you like people to know about your business? I am open most days...wonderful inventory with no junk! I offer a huge variety, and make it very easy to find your

collectable or what ever you are looking for! I have many, many cases filled and organized including a case full of toys, bisque, Oriental, pottery, vintage Christmas, many filled with jewelry, and so much more! What is the biggest compliment customers give you? Simply by saying this is a great shop! makes me proud of what I have I offer to all who visit! What are you most proud of? In this order…#1 my wife who supports me. #2 my children and family, and #3 this place! (All I have gathered, priced and organized at Antiques at Gordon’s!) How many employees/family work with you? It is always me you will find manning my shop during all business hours. My wife helps at Antique shows (when there were some!) I also value her “down to earth” thoughts, ideas, and suggestions. What are you most grateful for? So much! If it wasn’t for word of mouth, and calls from trusting customers and to come check out one piece, a collection or an entire estate, I would not have the incredible offering I do today! What are some of the categories I can expect to choose from when visiting your shop? Too many to mention all, but I do feature fine furniture, period to Country Pine; American Indian, perfume bottles, Asian, a huge postcard selection, and other paper, porcelain, jewelry, art glass, beautiful lighting, prints, many one of a kinds to cases full of what you are looking for! Who/what can you credit your success? My wife who is very understanding , patient, and allows me the time to do all I do to make the shop what it is! I do have to give a little credit to myself as well, being bullheaded, stubborn, patient and meticulous. All this helps to survive the ups and downs of this type of business as well as creating a very clean, neat and organized shopping experience for all! Antiques at Gordon’s is located at 2275 North Port Washington Road, Grafton, WI 53024 Important directions: 1/1/2 miles south of Port Washington on Hwy. 32 with access to I-43 (take exit 93) Look for flags on N. side of Hwy 32!

Cal’s Collectables _ Off I-94 on Highway T for Toys

Cal Anderson, how long have you been in business? How did you get started? I have been involved in this business for over 22 years, collecting, picking, buying, & doing shows. I have owned my brick and mortar location at 717 North Grandview (Hwy T in Waukesha) for the last 6 years. What changes have you seen over the years open? Because Value is driven by supply and demand, the amount of products is far exceeding the demand of many items today. What do you most Love about your Industry? I Love seeing all the History! So many pieces from our past that come through my door still amaze me and are awesome to see! What are some of the common myths you come across in your business? That everything has value, and if it is old it is worth more. There are many more factors that play into determining value, and demand. What message would you most like to share with people? Thank you for supporting my small business! Whether it is bringing in your quality items to consign, stopping in frequently to see what is new, or discovering all I have to offer for the first time, I sincerely value your interest, and business! What would you like people to know about your business? 100% of what you see in my extensive 3,000-square-feet selection of Collectables & Mantiques, is here on Consignment. I currently have items from over 400 consignors! I really think this helps add to the variety, and diversification you will see offered every time you stop in. Because my passion is in old toys, collectables, and any kind of vintage man stuff (mantiques) the guys who stop in are amazed at the huge offering of all they loved as a kid, and still do! There is truly something for everybody, there is so much to select from. WISCONSIN COUNTRY LIFE

Cal’s Collectables What is the biggest compliment customers give you? The biggest compliment is when many customers say “this is a Great Place”, or that our store “reminds them of many pleasant memories of their past” Another great compliment is when once a customer discovers us, they return back weekly, often, or travel long distances to get here, “Because they had to get back!” What are you most proud of? My loyal customers, clients, and consignors...without them we would not exist! How many employees/Family work with you? I have no employees. Previously, my wife Barb supported me, and helped dramatically

with many aspects of our business. Sadly, she passed away in 2019. My son, Justin helps occasionally, when he can. What are you most grateful for? My family, friends, and customers, many who have become great friends, fellow business owners, my congregation, and those who just “come in to check on what’s new.” What are some of the categories I can expect to choose from when visiting your shop? Antiques, collectables of all sorts! Games, mantiques including toy cars, breweriana, automobilia, wood working tools, trains, tons of models, comic books, magazines, advertising, fishing items, sports, and more! Who/what can you credit your success? From my business beginnings, my late wife, Barb always supported me and

helped any way she could. I miss her and her faithful help in running this business. I also have to give huge credit to my Consignors, and customers, and the treasures they bring in! Every day is a new adventure, never knowing what fun item, or boxful they will show up with. It truly makes this one of the most rewarding, fun jobs a guy could be part of! Most important, my faith in God has helped see me through every past & future phase of my business. Cal’s Collectables and Mantiques is Open Wednesday & Friday, 10am5pm; Thursday, 12-7pm, Saturday & Sunday, 10am-4pm. Located at 717 North Grandview Blvd. (Hwy T for TOYS!) in Waukesha, WI.

Mary Jane’s This is one of the most beautiful, organic Smudge stick lines we have ever seen, combined here with one of their all natural, Hemp Asatre soap line. Smudge wands are made out of sage, often with lavender, and wrapped with 100% cotton string. Native Americans have used these sacred herbs in ceremonies for centuries, used for clearing away negative and dirty energy, and sending out your prayer or aspiration. To use them, ignite one end of the wand over a fireproof dish, on a heat tolerant surface. Once a flame is established, gently blow out the flame. The wand should be smoldering with no visible flame. Proceed with smudging (google it!), with no visible flame. At a new shop called Mary Jane’s in downtown Waukesha, you will find a couple of different Smudge wand bundles to choose from, Mary would be happy to show you options, and information on all the shops choices.
