Antiques & Fine Vintage Wares
From the beginning, Gallery La Crosse has offered a nice selection of Antiques & fine Vintage wares.
In our main level Gallery, find most the finer Antique & Vintage items blended with Fine Arts & Fine Crafts.
You'll also find some very nice Antiques and a wide variety of Vintage Wares down the stairs, in our Rustic Cellar.
Early in 2011 we started offering a wide variety of Estate Liquidation items here at Gallery La Crosse. Most of these items are brought in by our many exhibiting Artists & Crafters, with sales of these things helping to support their creative ventures.
Most of the Estate Liquidation items will be found downstairs in our Rustic Cellar. Along with very nice Antique & Vintage wares, you will also find music CD's, movie DVD's, Primitives, and garden goods.
All of our current exhibitors have been invited to bring in those items that are way too nice to put into a rummage sale, yet are no longer relevant in their lives.
We are seeing rapid turnover in the items available as our customers are finding wonderful deals on a very nice selection of quality Antiques & Vintage & contemporary wares.
Just a few of the recently offered items...
We will strive to try to keep this list up-to-date as items are brought in & items are sold. Not everything will be noted here, our Antiques & Vintage wares move quickly, so visit us often in-person to view all available goods.

most are from the 1950's thru the 1990's.
We even have some Husfliden !!
Sizes ranging from Toddler, through Youth, Womens XS-XXL, and Mens S-XXL.
Most of these are 100% Wool & Made in Norway. Some are super soft Lambswool, and a few are either Cotton or blended fibers.
Just a few are good quality Norwegian-styles made in other countries, very affordable and Country of Origin clearly marked on their tags.
Styles include: Cardigan, Pull-over, Zippered, Tunic, & more.
We even occasionally get our hands on a beautiful Boiled Wool Jacket; made in Norway, Austria, Germany, or Switzerland (being an OktoberFest community, they usually sell fast).
We've been hard at work, scouting out Estate Liquidations for sweaters in the very best condition; any & all concerns about the condition of a sweater are clearly described on our informational tags, so no unhappy surprises when you wear it or give it as a Gift. Many of these appear to have not been worn at all (some with origial tags still attached).
Our Sweater prices start at around $50, none are over $190, with most of them between $70 & $170. These are sweaters which compare at new retail between $200 & $700.
You will also find new Norwegian Sweaters in this region, in: Westby at Dregne's, at the Ski Shop inside the Chalet at Mount La Crosse, and in several shops in Spring Grove, Minnesota & Decorah, Iowa.
