Five Star Antiques Joins Fort Chamber
Recent visitors to Fort Atkinson’s downtown may have noticed the ever-changing windows of a long-time retailer, Five Star Antiques & Vintage, now under new ownership. The sidewalk chalkboard reads “Three Floors of Cool Stuff”, and that is just what shoppers will find inside. Everything from toys, antiques, vintage and contemporary collectibles, furniture and home decor, books, clothing, sports collectibles, advertising, candy, affordable goods and unique finds are available from over 50 local vendors.
Five Star Antiques & Vintage, located at 125 N. Main Street, changed hands in April of 2020. New owners Ross Hipp and Kate Seil are originally from the Chicago area, and envisioned expanding this hometown store into a wildly entertaining shopping experience for the entire community. Their shop has come to reflect that vision, as evidenced by social media reviews, with comments like, “This is a Gem of a Mall,” where “quirky thingamajigs” can be found on every floor.
Five Star Antiques & Vintage looks forward to partnering with the Chamber of Commerce to promote local business and enhance retail shopping in the area. Their daily presence on social media has attracted a multitude of people from throughout southeastern Wisconsin to come to Fort Atkinson and explore restaurants, recreation and the natural beauty of the county.
Shoppers are welcome seven days a week, as the store is open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm. To learn more about store vendors, products, and updates on this dynamic destination, follow Five Star Antiques & Vintage on Facebook.
