We were born ski bums. Our lives revolve around the mountains. Our passion for winter sports has led us on some wonderful adventures in search of powder. We also found antique skis, snowshoes, vintage snowboards, antique sleds and vintage climbing mountaineering gear.
At some point in this journey, our love for these beautiful pieces led us to importing antiques sourced from over 15 different countries. We've added a wood shop that is dedicated to crafting with traditional techniques - our unique ski furniture and ski decor pieces that we can't find in the "wild vintage yonder". We love finding unique items that will fit in Alpine and Rustic style homes.

A wonderful set of antique maple skis made by the Northland Company in Hastings Minnesota. They feature their original labels and bindings complete with the factory leather straps. Old wooden skis in this condition with near perfect original labels are extremely difficult to find. They have been preserved with our natural oil and beeswax finish.
Northland Ski Manufacturing Company was founded as the C. A. Lund Company in Hastings, Minnesota by Norwegian-born Christian A. Lund back in 1911. Skis, Poles, Boots, Bindings, Toboggans, and Snowshoes were manufactured at Hastings, Minnesota, St. Paul and in Laconia, New Hampshire. By the mid 1920’s and on into the 1930s, Northland was the nation’s largest producer of Winter Sporting equipment.
