BACK PORCH GATHERINGS ~ Berlin, Wisconsin


D*A*Y   T*R*I*P
I took off early Friday Morning, in search of SHaBBies
along the Back Roads of Wisconsin... 
 
~ My FaVoRiTe Stop ~
~ BACK PORCH GATHERINGS in Ripon - Wisconsin ~
a **MUST VISIT** ViNtaGe SHaBBy-SHoP!!!  
 

 A Hint of S*P*R*I*N*G 
was definitely in the air with ViNtAge Garden Items...



The pleasure was all mine - meeting TAMMY, the owner of
BACK PORCH GATHERINGS in Berlin, WI...
Not only is Tammy a  "well-seasoned" vintage dealer,
she also has a keen eye for display...  
I sooo enjoyed chit-chatting with her & experiencing her shop!*!*! 

 

 There were some AmaZing Larger-Sized 
"Anchor Pieces" in the store - such has this cabinet...
Lot's of "naturally-chippy pieces, vintage garden
 & farmhouse style...
To keep up with what sells, like myself, Tammy incorporates 
Only A FEW "shabby-painted" pieces of furniture, which 
compliment the "time-worn" pieces quite well...






Tammy's Husband, Ernie was helping out
 in the shop that day as well...



 DO CALL AHEAD if you're driving any distance...
An Occasional Shop ~ open mostly on the weekends...

_______________________________

"2nd Location" in RIPON Wisconin
 OMG!*!*!  
About 20 Minutes down the road is Tammy's
SECOND LOCATION...
BACK PORCH GATHERINGS & WATER J's
in the town of RIPON, WI





The other half of the Store Name
& WALTER J - is Tammy's Business Partner...
(sorry I forgot her name!!!)
Tammy's Partner has a great eye for
 Finding INDUSTRIAL,
and Tammy pops on over to this location to
create the displays... 



Is this a *KILLER-CHIPPY-WHITE BACKDROP -Or- What!!!
Appears to be an old garage door!*!*!
Although this location does not have much 
W*H*I*T*E,
The whites that they do have are fabulous, - again
along with "just a few" more recenlty shabby-painted ones...



 Even though this was quite a trek for me from Cedarburg, Wisconsin,
I'll definintely make a point to RE-VISIT!!!
WELL WORTH THE DRIVE
IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE, with quite a few "OTHER"
Shabby Shops & Occasional Stores/Barn Sales in the area...

  2. I was also just at both of these shops for the "Shop Hop" in March. There were like over 200 shops participating I had never been to Ripon or Berlin so we started down there. Both shops are awesome! Cute quilt shop in Ripon too!
