Here at THE LUMBERJACK AND THE GYPSY, our mission is to build/find/create unique products for our “not so ordinary” customers.  All of our interesting pieces are either hand~crafted, rebuilt, repurposed or vintage.  Each piece will be one~of~a~kind and have a personality all it’s own.

We are starting small, loving the process.  We will have the most exquisite rustic furnishings that you will not find anywhere else.  We are the home to Lake Superior Furniture Co. and their snowshoe-laced furniture and wall art.  Also in our little shop, we will have Arrowhead Toboggans, Sleds and Snowshoes all made right next door.

We are hoping to have classes this fall in rug hooking, antique-looking teddy bears, spinning and weaving and a day to just hang out and craft in our cozy shop (where the coffee pot is always on and goodies are out to enjoy).

The owner of the shop has sold her creations under the names of:  Three Bears and a Queen; Queen Robyn Designs; Wild Woman Woollens; Life Crowns; Common Folk Primitives; Krow’s Feet Krafts and Butt-Ugly Bears!  (Her husband says she probably could paper every wall and ceiling in their house with all her old business cards!)

We are looking for an early August opening date and to begin we will just be open a few days a week to get our feet wet.  We will post our days and hours here on our website/blog and on our Facebook Page.

All of us at THE LUMBERJACK & THE GYPSY are so excited to get up and rolling.  I hope you will stop in and say hi and have a cuppa on us.

I am adding some of the before photos so you can see what we looked like before our “make over”.   Make over photos will be in a later blog post (we still have some work to get done).

We are located at 1592 Olsonville Road in Carlton, MN just a mile away from Black Bear Casino on old Hwy 61.  Just a quick hop off of I-35 at the exit to MN 210.  We’ll have more detailed directions in the next post along with our phone number and email address.

Okay, on to the before photos…..

I hope you will enjoy the transformation…..I’ll give you a little hint…..can you say reclaimed rusty corrugated barn roofing?   Rust is our favorite color (of course, the Gypsy changes her hair color at least monthly so her favorite color is the one she has on her head that day!)

Till we talk again,
