This year Antique Adventures takes the top spot for The Best of WashCo: Treasure Chest. The World Headquarters of Antique Adventures, located in Trego, brings an eclectic array of the rusty-crusty, craftsmanship of old wares and the passion for time past to their storefront. Owners Tom and Mardi Neefe have a knack of exploring through old estates, barns, garages, and flea markets to bring back nostalgia to the Northwoods. Their hand-selected inventory has a little bit of everything from kitchen, to outdoors, to furniture that changes on the regular, so you just might find yourself coming back for more time and time again. And, a trip to Antique Adventures just wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t come for their Flea Market that happens the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month, Memorial Day weekend through October.
