Nestled in the trees on the corner of Highway 355 and Highway 250 lies a quaint antique shop called Land Haus Antiques. It is here that members of the Basswood WI stopped as part of our summer tour. Proprietor Christine Raupers greeted us at the door with a friendly handshake and a welcoming smile. Inside this quaint little house are greeting cards, candles, handmade soaps and antique items on display. Equally impressive is the house itself complete with a staircase and an upstairs to browse thru. Coffee and delicious dainties were served by our hostess along with great conversation. What a wonderful afternoon we all had. If you are ever in the area make sure you stop at the Land Haus Antique shop. You will be glad you did. It is well worth the trip.
