[UPDATED November 2016]

Perched on a hill overlooking Interstate 94 at Exit 55 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, Backwoods Antiques at Exit 55 beckons to freeway travelers from Winnipeg, Canada to Chicago, Illinois and beyond to stop in and take a step back in time.


Backwoods Antiques at Exit 55 first opened in May 2008 with a core group of 10 dealers. The traffic along I-94 immediately encouraged them to be open 7 days a week and they settled on business hours of 10 am to 5 pm.


The shop is not large, but it is well laid out with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. From its inception the dealers have concentrated on antiques and other pre-1970 items which, with 10 unique dealers, gives them a wide and varied variety. 


Because Backwoods Antiques at Exit 55 is a stand-alone building with a large parking lot, they can accommodate vehicles of all sizes and the close proximity of I-94 makes it an “Easy Off – Easy On” stop. An added bonus is that there is plenty of room for the dealers to expand their displays to the outside areas around the shop in the spring, summer and fall. Customers enjoy finding bargains both inside and outside during these seasons.


The vision of the owner for Backwoods Antiques at Exit 55 has remained steady and has led to the ongoing success of the business:

               • Visible, high traffic location with easy access and consistent hours
