Outdoor adventures begin at WalkAbout WalkAbout first opened its doors in 2001 and has been outfitting people for their everyday life with a smile ever since. The term walkabout was first used by Australian aborigines, meaning a journey one would take during adulthood to rediscover one’s self. Owners Joy and Kevin Nelson liked the idea of a walkabout and in the process, rediscovered some things about themselves. “We love helping people discover new things every day and when we started WalkAbout, it was similar to our own personal rediscovery. Opening this store made us realize we really love what we do! Whether it be helping people rediscover an old hobby or find the perfect shoes for a new adventure, WalkAbout can help prepare you for your life’s journey,” said Joy Nelson. WalkAbout features several lines of kayaks made in America. The store also carries canoes from Souris River and Mad River. Souris River is available in Kevlar and Carbon-tec. Mad River is stocked in Royalex and rotomolded plastic. Newly added to WalkAbout’s outdoor equipment are stand-up paddleboards. Designed for recre-

ation and exercise, paddleboarding is an activity suitable for all members of the family. “We’ve really seen a huge response to the Pau Hana paddleboards and people are loving the new styles. They are visually stunning and perform beautifully on the water as well. It is really a sport the whole family can enjoy,” said Joy Nelson. WalkAbout hosts kayak and paddleboard demos every Saturday in the summer from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Silver Lake Beach, no sign-up necessary. Any interested parties wanting details can stop by the store or call for more information. Canoes, kayaks and paddleboards aren’t the only outdoor items people will find for their time on the water. The store offers a selection of life jackets and swimsuits for family members who want to take a dip. Sizes are available for adults, children and even the family dog. Accessories for water activities and camping can also be found at WalkAbout. The store has paddling accessories such as gloves, grips and seats that can make your water experience more enjoyable.

What makes a great-tasting pizza every time? What makes a great pizza? Tradition. The old ways still work, and all good cooking starts with the basics. Quality food starts with the ingredients. Only the finest ingredients should be used, starting from the bottom up, to ensure satisfied customers who come back time after time for the best pizza around. The first ingredient for any pizza is dough. It should be made with flour that is high gluten, the highest quality flour, Amber Durham wheat — the finest of all wheats, cane sugar and only the best yeast. It must be made fresh, never frozen. The dough should then be thrice raised, which takes 36 hours. This ensures the best dough possible. Pear tomato puree is the main ingredient for the next layer, the sauce. Pear tomatoes are one of the best on the market because they contain the maximum of tomato solids. The best of domestic and imported spices would then be blended to create a uniquely superb sauce with a savory taste. In Wisconsin, cheese is a very important ingredient for pizza. All the cheese used should be 100% Wisconsin full cream moz-

zarella, without one gram of artificial cheese, for the fullest flavor. A superb pizza also contains the best meat. The sausage should be 100% meat, 90% lean whole hog, blended with the finest spices for a delectable taste sure to please even the most discriminating of palates. The pepperoni should also be 100% meat, 90% lean, aged to perfection to enhance the flavor, sure to please all pepperoni lovers. Other toppings available must also be high quality. Only the best onions should be used, including Vadalia, Walla Walla, Texas 10/15, and sweet red Bermuda onions. These create a mouthwatering addition to any pizza. Green peppers must be mixed slightly with the sweetest red bell peppers for an appetizing way to liven up a pizza. California black olives also add a savory taste. For a wild appetite, sweet succulent pineapple, crispy vitamin-rich broccoli, tender flaky solid white albacore, or luscious shrimp could be added. At Alexander’s Pizza, these basics have created a tradition of quality food,

which has made the restaurant the most popular pizza stop for residents and vacationers alike. In addition, when all the ingredients are being artfully combined, nobody wants to think of a dirty kitchen or unsanitary conditions. But never fear, for Alexander’s Pizza has the cleanest kitchen you’ll find. In fact, it would even be clean enough to perform surgery. Of course, an aesthetically pleasing environment is also needed to enjoy the full pleasure of eating delicious pizza. Alexander’s Pizza offers a clean, relaxing environment with friendly service and a casual atmosphere. Games and pool are also available to entertain the kids while the food is being prepared to order. Where do you get pizza made with care and concern? Alexander’s Pizza — that’s where. Alexander’s Pizza is located on Railroad Street in downtown Eagle River. Call (715) 479-7363, and your pizza will be ready when you arrive. Alexander’s Pizza is the place for you.

Undulating greens and narrow fairways keep the course challenging. The practice area represents what customers should expect from a course with a four-star rating. A new putting and chipping green was built five years ago, a huge improvement for those who wish to practice all aspects of their short game. For golfers to practice their greenside sand game, a practice greenside bunker is featured. The practice area features a new practice tee. Many of the course’s holes are carved out of mature trees, reminding visitors why they love to golf in the North Woods area. The abundance of wildlife is another unique characteristic of the course.

Festival of Flavors set at Riverview Park The North Woods’ premier food event, the Eagle River Area Festival of Flavors, is set for Saturday, July 13, in Riverview Park near downtown Eagle River. The Eagle River Area Festival of Flavors, named “Best Downtown Special Event” by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce, attracts some of Wisconsin’s pride-and-joy businesses, according to event coordinator Cindy Meinholz. The huge 200- by 60-foot Celebrate the Taste of Wisconsin tent will showcase foods and beverages of the Badger State. Attendees can sample champion cheeses, gold award-winning wines, prized Wisconsin meats, along with features from many Vilas County restaurants. Something Special From Wisconsin companies will offer samples and sell their foods, while Sprecher Brewing Co. will provide samples of all their beers and sodas. The Discover Wisconsin Theatre stage will host in-

teractive events such as cooking demonstrations by chefs Raymond Arpke and Cyndy Lagerhausen. Arpke was a finalist on ABC Nightline’s “Plate List . . . in Search of Great Chefs in America.” Lagerhausen is a nationally-recognized food stylist and owner of Food Style Cooking Classes in Eagle River. Other events scheduled during the 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. festival will be the Sprecher Root Beer Float Drinking Contest at 2 p.m. and the Kids’ Kreative Kakes Kontest sponsored by Trig’s and Soda Pops Restaurant, open to contestants ages 5-8. Outside the Taste of Wisconsin tent and available without admission is Wisconsin Street Food Row and Sprecher Wisconsin Beverage Garden. Everyone is invited to listen to live music by the Hand-Picked Bluegrass Band. For the hungry festival goers, Street Food Row offers foods that include Brakebush chicken tacos, Nueske’s smoked weiners,

A customer enjoys a beer flight at Tribute Brewing Co. Taphouse in Eagle River. Tribute offers many different beer styles

including their 28 Lakes Lager, Barefoot Charlie IPA, Old Eagle Chocolate Porter and more.

Tribute Brewing Co. introduces new beers with ‘tribute’ names Just a few months ago, Tribute Brewing Co. released their first beer to the public at the taphouse on Bluebird Road in Eagle River. Since then, they have introduced many different beer styles with another beer, a summer seasonal called Summer Kamp Kolsch, ready to release this month. Tribute names their beers as a tribute to local historic people, places and things. You’ll find 28 Lake Lager named after the Cain of Lakes, Blueberry Train Wheat named after a train that carried blueberries from Conover to Chicago, Barefoot Charlie IPA in honor of a local character who built a historic bar, Ghost Lights Amber Lager named for the unexplained lights in Paulding, Mich., and Old Eagle Chocolate Porter in honor of the first steamboat to navigate the Eagle River.

Co-owner and brewmaster Marc O’Brien has been busy keeping up with the demand, but it’s not all just brewing the beer when it comes to producing a quality product. “Fresh, quality ingredients are key in the brewing industry,” O’Brien said. “Sourcing from regional companies is our preference to ensure the freshest products.” According to co-owner Bill Summers, O’Brien has been perfecting his recipes for the last 16 years as a homebrewer and seems to have made the transition to a professional brewer. “Marc is brewing some great beer in a variety of styles, which is not easy to do,” says Summers. “From the Blueberry Train Wheat to the Old Eagle Chocolate Porter, his beers have been spot on.” Tribute is just beginning to distribute their beers to

local bars and restaurants. As a small start-up brewery, Tribute has a limited amount of kegs to go around and is setting up accounts on a first-come, first-served basis. “The response from the community and area businesses has been great,” said Summers. You’ll find Tribute Brewing Co. beers on tap locally at O’Brien’s Pub and the Eagle River Country Club, Club 45 in Conover, Buckatabon Lodge in Conover, Vinchi’s Hillside Inn in Sayner, Aqualand Alehouse in Boulder Junction and the Tribute Golf Course in Wausau. Summers expects more bars will begin to want a locally brewed beer to offer to their customers. In addition to being served on tap, their beer can be purchased in half-gallon glass jugs called growlers. “It’s a reusable packaging option that most all craft

breweries use,” said Summers. “It contains four pint servings of our beer and when it’s empty, you can return it in exchange for a full one. That way you’re only paying for the beer the second time, not the packaging.” Summers says that growlers are available at the taphouse as well as Paul’s Pump and Pantry in Eagle River, Trig’s Cellar 70 locations in Eagle River, Rhinelander and Minocqua, and at Stein’s Lincoln Street Liquor in Rhinelander. The Tribute Brewing Co. Taphouse is located on Bluebird Road just off of Airport Road in Eagle River. They don’t serve food but you can have pizza delivered there and they do allow carry-ins. Their hours are Tuesdays through Fridays, 3 to 9 p.m., Saturdays 1 to 9 p.m. and closed Sundays and Mondays. For more information, call (715) 480-BEER.

Waldmann Construction employees take pride in building custom homes Employees at Waldmann Construction put a bit of themselves into every custom home they build. Each home is given individual attention, with a project foreman, who works closely with the homeowner from start to finish. The home becomes not only a reflection of the owner’s personality, but a statement of the dedication and care of the people who created it. “Our business philosophy is built on the belief that a successful project leaves a lasting positive influence on everyone involved,” states Brad Waldmann, owner and designer. “It isn’t just about the bottom line on a contract. We really care about what we do and that shows in the number of repeat clients we serve. People want a reputable contractor that they can trust, and because of that, we’ve weathered the highs and lows of the economy for over 25 years. “No two homes are exactly alike and each one is as unique as the people who will live in them. Our talented team of designers works with the owner to

create a personalized home which reflects the owner’s tastes and lifestyle. Whether you have a rough drawing or pre-bought plans, we will work to design a home that is right for you. “Our experienced designers utilize computeraided drafting software to create floor plans, custom cabinet layouts, elevations and perspectives to meet the design requirements. 3D renderings allow the home owner a vision of the finished project. “Our designers will also guide you through the process of selecting styles, materials, textures, finishes and assist with color coordination.” From repairs to remodeling, additions to new buildings, Waldmann Construction does it all. They provide design services, rough and finish carpentry, remodeling, custom cabinetry, roofing, insulating, excavating, concrete and masonry work, and painting and drywall. Waldmann’s highly skilled craftsmen are proficient with many kinds of

building materials including log, timber, stick built and SIP panels. Since they do not work exclusively with any log dealer, they are able to offer the best product suited to their clients’ budgets and needs. “Our employees are continually exploring new products and being educated on installation and new techniques, including metal roofing, concrete countertops and stamped flooring. We believe that a product does not work at its full potential if not properly installed. We combine modern technology and old world craftsmanship to create a perfect blend of style and durability.” As a partner in Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program, Waldmann Construction is committed to protecting the environment with energy efficient, low maintenance homes. A Focus on Energy home is more efficient in terms of heating than similar-sized

new homes built in Wisconsin. This is an important building characteristic and speaks to the high quality of construction that adds to the homeowners’ comfort, building durability, indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Waldmann Construction can handle any project. No other contractor shares more in your enthusiasm or offers a more enjoyable building experience.

The event will be held at the Vilas County Fairgrounds for youths ages 7 to 12. Activities will include a casting contest, fishing seminars and fishing with a guide on an area lake.

Antique show set July 12-13 Dealers from several states will participate in an antique show at the Boulder Junction Community Center on Highway M Friday and Saturday, July 1213. The show hours will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Admission for the event will be $5 per person. Youths 14 and younger will receive free admission. There also will be a luncheon and book sale sponsored by the Boulder Junction Lioness Club.

Parents and guardians can register youths from 10 to 11 a.m. at the fairgrounds on Highway 70 West in Eagle River. Youths may take their own fishing gear and life preservers. Other gear will be provided by the guides and area bait shops will provide the bait. At 11 a.m., children will be selected to fish with a guide on an area lake. Parents are asked to stay with their children until after the drawing to fish with a guide. Children can be picked up at the fairgrounds at 3 p.m. Emerson said the chamber is always looking for a few extra anglers to volunteer as guides to fish with

the youths. “We’re looking for a few good anglers who would enjoy taking a few good kids fishing for the day,” she said.

To participate as a guide, contact Bill Hassey at (715) 479-7395 or sign up at Eagle Sports Center, located on Wall Street in downtown Eagle River. There will be an evening cookout for guides, guests and volunteers. For more information, contact Emerson at (800) 359-6315 or (715) 479-6400.

But more importantly, it is still organized, as it was in 1972, to raise funds that are all returned to the community as scholarships, art programs, beautification projects and services.” Berni and Joe DePauola will perform live music at

p.m. at Torpy Park and in the Campanile Center in Minocqua. The 38th annual art fair event had changed its location and has gained the support of two local businesses as supporting sponsors of this year’s event. The art fair event will have the outdoor portion of the show at Torpy Park, which will include more than 45 crafter and artist booths on the park’s upper level under the trees across from the pavilion. Visitors may continue along a two-block path following the sidewalk with stops at Loon Land Trading Co. and Twisted Root Emporium and Park Side Gallery. Visitors will continue down Flambeau Street to the Campanile Center for the indoor event, which will display unique individual

pieces of fine art and fine crafts. This two-location event creates a fun walk between the events while also visiting these art centers along the way in part of the downtown atmosphere of the Island City of Minocqua. The Campanile indoor art show will be a center for artists creating fine art and craft pieces which can be displayed individually without the weather affecting the art. The Art League will be available at this part of the show to assist visitors, sell raffle tickets for some of the art and facilitate the sale of the displayed art. As a fine art and craft show, the public can vote on their favorite piece with ribbons and prizes being awarded to the top three art pieces.

Spang’s continues its tradition of great pizza, Italian cuisine and true family ownership For delicious, homemade food at a reasonable price and a great family dining experience, try Spang’s Italian Restaurant in St. Germain. Ed “Spang” Reid and his wife, Rosie, moved up north from Chicago in 1972 and that summer they started Spang’s Italian Restaurant. In 1988 their son and his wife, Joe and Debbie Reid, took over and Spang’s is now in its 41st year of business. Joe and Debbie’s son, Joe Reid Jr., work as the kitchen manager and the main chef. “It truly is a family affair,” said Debbie. Last year, under new ownership the restaurant underwent an interior renovation and a completely new menu with different recipes was implemented. Now, the Reid family is thrilled to be back in business at Spang’s and continue their 40-year tradition of delicious Italian food, a charming, cozy atmosphere and the best pizza north of Chicago. The interior renovations remain the same, but the menu and recipes have been changed back to feature the original Italian entrees that have been favorites of diners for years. Spang’s is open daily for dinner and features dishes such as homemade ravioli,

eggplant Parmigiana, seafood Alfredo, homemade chicken Kiev and more. All entrees come with a choice of soup or salad, antipasto plate, Joe’s homemade bread and a choice of side dishes to accompany the entrees. The menu also features a selection of appetizers such as bruschetta, calamari and antipasto. A variety of sandwiches including the Roast Beef Bomber and Spang’s sausage and beef combo also can be found. A new smoked trout salad has been added to their selection of salads. Smoked salmon tops a bed of fresh spinach, wild rice, green onion, red lettuce, romaine, cheddar cheese and is sprinkled with slivered almonds and served with a creamy horseradish dressing. Diners can finish off their meal with something sweet from the dessert menu such as tiramisu, cannoli and amaretto spumoni cheesecake. Spang’s also offers a children’s menu. One of the most popular items featured on Spang’s menu is their homemade pizza. Pizza comes in thin crust and deep dish. The dough is fresh made and hand rolled daily.

When it comes to pizzerias in the North Woods, one of the most popular stops for traditional homemade pizza is Alexan-

der’s Pizza in Eagle River. The pizzeria also has an assortment of arcade games, pool and pinball.

Alexander’s Pizza in Eagle River brings tradition to your table More than 38 years ago, two brothers came to the North Woods seeking summer jobs. Rooted in a strong Italian community in Chicago, pizza was the staple at home and at college. Seeing a lack of pizzerias in the area, the brothers realized a great opportunity existed and opened their own pizzeria in Eagle River. Sources say the locals at the time looked down on them and called them brash boys from “Chi-town.” Today, the pizzeria has become a landmark. Customers come from all over the country to taste the best pizza in the area. Even celebrities have visited Alexander’s on occasion, including professional football players; head coaches from the NFL, NBA and NCAA; hockey players; movie stars; movie critics; national sports commentators; leaders of U.S. industries; newscasters; and authors. A visiting film critic even gave Alexander’s a

“thumbs up.” Although the business opened many years ago, one thing remains the same — the traditional method of making pizza at Alexander’s. The pizza is made the way Grandma Del Cristo said: use the best to make the best. The ingredients used are only the finest, which the owners ensure. The cheese used is 100% full-cream mozzarella, which is straight from the most award-winning dairy in Wisconsin, along with ninemonth-aged Romano. The soul of a pizza is the crust, which is made with high-gluten flour. Adding flavor to the pizza is the thick, rich sauce created from tomato purée from pear tomatoes — the meatiest of tomatoes. The meat also is very lean, at 90%, with no soy fillers. For the more adventurous pizza connoisseurs, Alexander’s offers broccoli,

shrimp, albacore and pineapple to create original gourmet pizzas. Diners also can try a delicious oven-roasted cheese bread appetizer — one-half loaf of freshly baked French bread, basted with butter, seasoned with garlic and aged Romano, covered with mozzarella, roasted to a honey-golden brown and lightly sprinkled with oregano. As one would say in Italian, “Qui si mangia sempre bene!” (Here one always eats well!) Alexander’s success is due to the quality put into each pizza. The dough is homemade and tripleraised while the crusts are rolled with care. The delicious taste of fresh butter is found in every bite of crust as well. Pizza is not the only item on the menu made with care and dedication. Savory sandwiches are made to order with toasted French bread, creamy mozzarella,

California tomato sauce and your choice of ham, Italian sausage or meatballs, and any of your favorite pizza toppings. Alexander’s has a full assortment of arcade games, such as pinball, video games and several pool and foosball tables. It’s a great place to host birthday parties. Employees at Alexander’s Pizza have hailed from various cities and countries around the globe. Exchange students from Hungary, England, Spain, Scotland, Lithuania, Jamaica, Poland, Belarus and the Czech Republic have made the trip across the Atlantic to work at Alexander’s Pizza. Alexander’s Pizza is located in downtown Eagle River on Railroad Street. Parking is available across the street. Customers can dine in or carry out, and can call ahead to have the pizza ready when they arrive. To enjoy the “best pizza in the North,” call (715) 479-7363.

Visit Lake Forest for golf tradition, recreation Lake Forest Golf Club has a rich tradition of providing challenging holes, friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere to vacationers and local residents. The beautiful North Woods scenery of the historical course makes it a wonderful place to enhance your summer fun. “You can come by land or by water,” club manager Rick “Pepper” Freund said, referring to the course’s location on the Chain of Lakes. The course can be accessed by boat on the channel between Voyageur and Eagle lakes. Guests are welcome to stop by for a game of golf or enjoy food and drinks at the clubhouse. The romantic history of golf at Lake Forest dates back more than 75 years. In 1917, a small group of wealthy “regulars” selected a wooded and hilly farm site with frontage on two lakes and established what was called Eagle Waters

Golf Club. They carved a nine-hole golf course from the wooded hills and built a clubhouse. Eagle Waters Golf Club was private and catered to the elite group of cottage owners in the Everett Colony between Catfish and Cranberry lakes. Through the years, the golf club has entertained the rich and famous. On some days, as many as 100 caddies served the club and its members. While the rest of the country struggled through the Great Depression, the driveways of local estates sported Fleetwoods, Rolls Royces and Cords. Bets of $1,000 per hole were not unusual. Many famous golfers played the course — Walter Hogan, Ollie Meyers and José Hurado, the South American golf champion. In the 1950s, President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his brother, Milton, were frequent visitors.

Situated in the midst of the beautiful North Woods, Lake Forest Golf Club in Eagle River is a great place to relax and enjoy a game of golf. Lake Forest also has tennis, nature trails and a fitness center.

Lake Forest Golf Clus in Eagle River offers a nine-hole golf course in the scenic North Woods. The clubhouse serves a full

When Jim Mason purchased Eagle Waters Golf Club in 1963, he built the first four units of Lake Forest Resort. Today, Lake Forest Resort offers golf, tennis, a fitness center and nature trails to guests and the public. The nine-hole golf course winds through the hilly greens and provides tee times daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. This fully irrigated, par-36 golf course is 3,000 yards long. Amenities at the golf course include a clubhouse, pro shop, practice green, gas carts and push carts, rental clubs, and seasonal memberships. There also are weekly specials on merchandise at the pro shop. Golf specials include early bird 9 holes, 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. daily for $15, twilight 9 holes after 2 p.m. daily for $15 and super twilight 9 holes after 6 p.m. daily for $12. Seniors can receive discounted greens fees seven days a week. Other specials include Sweetheart days Saturdays and Sundays, when couples can play for $26 after 2 p.m.

Lake Forest also offers individual 10-play passes. The pass costs $150 for 10 nine-hole rounds and the 11th game is free. The clubhouse serves a full menu of sandwiches, brats, burgers and deepfried appetizers, starting at 11 a.m. Deck and dance parties are held every Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m., featuring live entertainment, weather permitting. The bartenders can make your favorite drinks, including their famous

menu and bar starting at 11 a.m. Lake Forest also has tennis, nature trails and a fitness center.

Bloody Marys. Food and beverages must be ordered at the bar, but guests are welcome to sit at the tables outside or in the clubhouse. If golfers would like more information about golfing at Lake Forest they can call (715) 479-4211. In addition to the golf course, Lake Forest Recreation Area has a health and fitness center which is open to the public. Memberships are available at the fitness center.

Hartstrings, Kitestrings, Hatley and Purple Mountain add to the growing children’s department, which includes a carefully selected group of toys and books geared to nature and Native American appreciation. On the traditional side, Trading Post Internationale has a selection of elegant gifts, such as Bohemian ruby glass, Royal Doulton and Hummel figurines and crystal. These items join North Woods decorative accessories such as Native American-made birch-bark mirrors, lamps, dream catchers, and distinctive antler wall hangings by Wisconsin artist Dave Stencil. Trading Post Internationale also features individually designed, ceramic lake mugs and other personalized accessories by local artist Judy Thomas of Country Ceramics. Handmade, silver and turquoise jewelry from the Southwest, fashioned by Navajo, Hopi, Zuni and Santo Domingo Indians, as well as an array of handcarved Zuni fetishes, fill the jewelry cases at Trading Post Internationale. One-ofa-kind, elegant silver jewelry pieces from local silversmith J. Erik are offered at the Trading Post as well as fish decoy carvings by noted area artist “Trapper John” Reichling.

Different styles of beautiful handwoven Navajo rugs are available at Trading Post Internationale in Land O’ Lakes.

Popular copper jewelry, some set with turquoise from Native American crafters and flame-drawn copper and agate jewelry from Wisconsin copper artist Pam Smith also are part of the jewelry mix. A quick visit to Trading Post Antiques next door reveals a world of antiques, plus more Native American decorative arts such as Ojibwe birchbark and Winnebago black-ash baskets. Antiques include majolica, Depression glass, oil lamps, kitchenware, pottery, paintings, clocks, Jim Beam bottles, primitive and Victorian furniture, wicker, duck and fish decoys, railroad items and Oriental rugs. Trading Post Antiques also has Indian “Skookum”

dolls in its comprehensive collection of handmade items celebrating Native American heritage. “These dolls, sold as souvenirs from the early 1920s to the early 1950s, have become highly sought after. Each one is hand painted and uniquely dressed. It is

rare to find so many in one place,” said Nehring. Both Trading Post Internationale and Trading Post Antiques house a variety of Hopi and Navajo kachina dolls, hand carved from cottonwood tree roots and then hand painted. Each represents a special spirit, which connects mankind to the gods in the Southwest Native American tradition. Representing the woodland tribes, Trading Post Internationale highlights a collection of antler carvings by Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe artist Wayne Valliere. Trading Post Internationale and Trading Post Antiques are both located on Highway B in downtown Land O’ Lakes. Trading Post Internationale is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays by chance or by appointment.
