My spouse and I have visited this antiques store for many, many years. It was at its best when it occupied the large, old Charley Walker General Store in Levering across from Cook's Hardware Store. During this period, it was jam-packed with marvelous finds. BTW, one can read about this historic building on a sign where the store had previously existed.
During my childhood while summering with my family on a nearby lake, we bought many groceries at Charley Walker's. As such, the building held many wonderful memories for me of Charley, who lived above the store with his wife, and his massive wheel of cheese on the counter. And yes, mice scurried across the worn,
wooden floor. It was part of the ambiance.
After Charley died, and Levering Antiques moved in, my spouse and I continued to visit year after year each summer. And I continued my trip down Memory Lane. My spouse and I found multiple additions for our cottage during this time period.
Unfortunately, when the historic building burned down, the antiques store had to downsize drastically. Too drastically for an adequate quantity of cottage antiques.
After the fire, the store no longer offered all the magnificent Rittenhouse furniture, and other UpNorth/American Indian antiques that we eagerly sought for our cottage.
We continue to visit each year. But have not found anything to buy for many years...So very sad. It is not what is used to be................
Kudos to the owners who persist, and continue to persist through trials and tribulations.
Do visit. Perhaps you will find your special Northwoods antique!
