The College was founded as the Milton Academy (high school) by a group of early Milton settlers, including Milton House owner Joseph Goodrich; hence the name of Terry's store. Of course, as usual, I forgot my camera, so this photo is off the internet. This is what you see when you pull into the property. Terry's store is the furthest back building--Goodrich Hall.
She offers two floors of more antiques than you can count--glassware and china to hutches and buffets--and everything in between. I actually drove there today with the intent to purchase this coat:
I'm always a sucker for vintage snowy, cabin prints. This one is called "After the Snowstorm" and is a Currier and Ives. I love it sitting next to my snowman and sparkly trees from The Empty Attic in Rock City.
Then, when all the purchases were made, we had a really special treat. Terry invited us up to her 3rd floor home in Goodrich Hall! Holy cow--I'm so jealous. I could move in with her tomorrow. Room after room filled with fabulous, unique pieces of antique buffets, dressers, hutches and cabinets. Each filled with gorgeous glassware, collections, jewelry, and statuaries. All so lovely. Her front living room is to die for...her husband removed the plaster to expose the original brick wall. Stunning! Simply stunning! Again, because I couldn't remember to grab my camera, I hiested these two photos are from the internet:
There are several other shops in the area: Patty's Plants; Red Rooster at The Old Junction Mill; the historic Milton House Museum and Tours; and Northleaf Winery & Bistro! Forget about returning your Christmas gifts to the mall...grab your girlfriends and hit the road this weekend to get yourself a new "old" gift in Milton, Wisconsin!
