Uncommonplace–Hokah, Minnesota!

Last Friday, mom and I went up to her last surgeon appointment in LaCrosse.  This fall, I started my last semester of the nursing program at NICC in Calmar.  Because it’s a pretty rigorous program and I have clinic twice a week, 1 1/2 hours away, it’s been pretty busy, so I haven’t been able help out much.  When mom mentioned that she had an appointment on a Friday afternoon, I was pretty sure it would work.  After I checked my work schedule to make sure I didn’t have to work (til 10 that night) I was in!

Every time that we go up to LaCrosse, we go through this little town called Hokah and every time, I start yelling HOKAH! in the car as a joke.  Why?  I have no idea.  When we drive through, there’s a little shop that we have always talked about stopping at, but either don’t have time or it’s not open.  Well–This time it was open and we were determined to make time!

Hokah 1 (300x400)She had the neatest succulents outside.  I love succulents when they are in containers other than pots!

Hokah 3 (300x400)And then we spyed these super cute coffee cozies–Can you see the little owls on them?

Hokah 2 (300x400)When we stepped into the store?  OOFDA!  Wonderfulness overload!

Hokah  8 (400x300)Mom spied this little sewing machine right off the bat.  We think it was a kids version.  The owner told us that it only sews in a straight line, so it would probably have been a good basic starter machine for a little one just learning how to sew.

Hokah 5 (300x400)I of course, liked this stand.  It is a shade of green you know, so of course it’s up my alley!

Hokah 6 (300x400)This little quilt square was one of my favorites that I saw there!

Hokah 9 (300x400)And I loved this roll top desk!  Mom has one almost identical to it and I’d love to have one, but don’t really have the room.  I also love how it was all decorated–There was honestly nothing that I didn’t like!

Hokah 7 (300x400)We got talking with the owner and she’s such a sweet lady.  She was telling us of how she quilts too and handmakes a lot of the things that she sells in her shop.  And did I tell you there’s a basement too?  It was a wonderfully spectacular little stop!  You can check her out here on facebook.

You can bet your butt that I’m gonna be stopping in again when we have a bit more time to look some more, cause OOFDA!  I loved it all!

    Loved the pictures….that’s my kind of shop. Congratulations for having the end in sight. That is such a wonderful feeling. Glad you and your Mom had a good day making memories.

    We call it Hokie Town and you should take a look in the hardware store across the street. If they don’t got it, you don’t need it and prices are great.
