May 2017 marks the 26th Anniversary of Country Side Antique Mall!

In 1991, Steve and Sylvia Bauer, The owners of Country Side Implement in Cannon Falls, purchased the property next to their John Deere dealership.  Back in the 40’s the building had originally been home to Windy Acres, the first truck stop in Minnesota.  After the truck stop closed the building had a variety of different uses, among them a car repair garage.

Steve and Sylvia have always been avid collectors of antiques of all kinds and felt this location (midway between the Twin Cities and Rochester off Hwy 52) would be great spot to start an antique store to sell their “stuff”....  and so Country Side Antique Mall was born.  They started an extensive renovation of the building, turning it into the impressive structure that stands there today.

Shortly after purchasing it, and while the renovation was in process, the Bauers connected with Chuck and Eva Drometer.  Chuck was a car salesman and Eva a bookkeeper.  Both were knowledgeable about antiques and serious collectors themselves.  After a few brief meetings, they agreed to be the managers of the new business.  They have been a wonderful asset to the Mall and after 26 years continue to participate in Country Side Antique Mall’s day-to-day activities.

Country Side Antique Mall currently showcases 12,000 square feet of quality antiques on three levels and welcomes its customers to a dealer-friendly, clean, spacious and well-lit store with 55+ dealers.

Country Side Antique Mall provides a first-class shopping experience for all budgets.  Inventory includes furniture from all eras, primitives, Red Wing stoneware, Pyrex, signs, collectibles, vintage and retro items, jewelry, coins, toys, dolls and more.  Country Side Antique Mall is a “must stop and shop” location.  The coffee is always on and outside there is ample parking.

Steve and Sylvia’s passion for collecting antiques didn’t start with Country Side Antique Mall.  In 1989, just before purchasing the Country Side Antique Mall building, they had moved an 1857 log house to a property south of Hastings, Minnesota.  This was the start of the Little Log House Pioneer Village (which they describe as “a hobby out-of-control”).

 

Over the years, the Little Log House Pioneer Village grew to encompass over 40 acres and during this time more than 45 buildings (many historic buildings) were moved on to the site.  The property is open to the public, just 3 days each year, during a well-known event that has become known as the Little Log House Antique Power Show.  Approximately 10,000 visitors visit the Pioneer Village during the Antique Power Show every year.  Both young and old come to experience a part of history in action; its fun for the entire family.  This year marks the 27th annual show and will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 28, 29 and 30.  For more info go to: www.LittleLogHouseShow.com or email them at info@littleloghouseshow.com
