UPDATE: We have been allowed to keep our larger signs where they are until we get this straightened out. We do have to move our small open sign and banners back farther away from the hwy.
Beginning Monday June 17th, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, after 10 years, will no longer honor the agreement we have with them to have our business signs out by the highway and visible to oncoming traffic. They are forcing us to move all Red Cedar Mercantile Antiques signage back 200 feet from the highway. Our signs will no longer be visible from HWY 8 unless you look directly down our driveway. This includes our Antiques Ahead signs, our business sign, open signs, and all banners. We know this will negatively affect our business, but we are NOT closing. The DOT is reviewing our circumstance and hopefully we can arrive at a suitable conclusion that both parties can agree upon.

This weekend, Friday July 27th thru Sunday July 29th Rob will be at the Little Log House power show south of Hastings Minnesota.

The antique shop on HWY 8 will still be open this weekend.
The next weekend, Saturday August 4 and Sunday August 5 is the Cambridge Antique Fair at the Isanti County Fairgrounds in Cambridge Minnesota.

Over the years I have had a lot of interest in my personal ride-on toy collection on display in the shop. My collecting interests have changed and it is time to offer some of these toys for sale.

2-9-17 Our feature item this week is this large tin barn cupola. This cupola is larger than most. It measures 4' 5" X 4' 5" X 8' tall. It is in very good condition. The top weather vain is missing and like any other cupola there are bullet holes. I have reinforced the base with wood so it would not collapse when set up as a yard or garden ornament. This will fit in the back of a truck standing up.
5-28-16 We just added this great stoplight to our inventory. It measures 6’ 5” tall with a cast iron base. It works great and would be the perfect item for your garage or man cave. $675.00 + tx
