Flea Market Style Magazine

Check out the newest Flea Market Style magazine - it's a fantastic issue.  Be sure to look at the section on the best vintage sales from coast to coast.  Right there, listed on page 17, is Calamity Janes of Lake Mills, Wisconsin.

I featured Calamity Janes on my post dated October 8, 2011.  Mother and daughter team, Stefanie and Lynne, have a created a wonderful shop with a great selection of vintage, industrial and primitive pieces.  If you are in Wisconsin, be sure to stop by Calamity Janes.  You can also visit their website at for more information and shop hours.
