15 wooden puzzles for Anabelle

2. Papa's Barn Boutique & Craft Fair
This place was soooooo much fun! We found it in Wabasha, MN. & they had lots of different consignors with all different kinds of antiques, crafts and woodwork. Plus Kettle Corn! YUM! We spent the afternoon at the farm and had a blast!

3.
Prescott, WI
the first town after we crossed the MN border into WI. This town was adorable!! A historical town along the Mississippi River, Prescott is the beginning of the scenic "Great River Road". The 100 mile yard sale was along the route of the Great River Road and it was GORGEOUS!
