About Us ...

The Christmas Barn started as an idea in the lives of three "Baby Boomers." Vital women not ready to settle down, but ready to write another chapter in their lives. Different personalities led to a well rounded business venture.

They felt there was a need to present the southeast Wisconsin area with a new venue to view and buy local artisans' products in a retail atmosphere. The November-December months seemed to be perfect. During the Christmas rush "The Christmas Barn" is like a pleasant interlude for those looking for a thoughtfully chosen gift. It's like a little piece of Door County.

In 2012 The Barn became a family affair. One of the previous owners,  plus immediate family and a few “adopted” members  combined their talents with great results. Their goal is to give their customers the same experience they’ve had in the past, plus include some new and exciting shopping options. Our permanent and present location (a former restaurant, now an events location) has been renamed “Heartwood”. It is adequately suited to The Christmas Barn, with great ambiance and wonderful community support.
