On the fourth Thursday of every month the little town of Dassel starts rumbling at about 8:30 a.m. Why? Because all the ladies, far and near, with their purses full of money, are quickly making their way to the once-a-month sale at the Little Red Hen. :) The doors open at 9a.m., but there are usually a dozen women waiting outside for the store to open. It's an awesome shop! Kent and Brenda Rydberg, the owners, do an incredible job of repainting and fixing up old furniture and reselling it. But it's more than just furniture, much more! And there are other people that sell items there too. If you have never been to one of their sales, you really should go sometime.
Another reason to visit the shop is that every fourth Thursday, during the Little Red Hen sale (which is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), Housman Farms will be set up outside the store doing a Farmer's Market. :) We only sell there on Thursday because we have our own market at our farm on Friday and by Saturday we need a break. :)
Emily and I do a lot of baking for this sale, and sell almost everything we bake! We also sell canned goods, sheep hides, herbs, and garden produce. The next sale at the Little Red Hen will be June 24, 25, and 26. Hope to see you there!! :)
Here are some pictures of us setting up for the sale last month.
