Little Dipper

Little Dipper is excited to be a part of the Three Lakes community.  The shop offers visitors a unique shopping experience - vintage, handcrafted gifts, Three Lakes souvenirs, seasonal plants/bouquets, & even vintage bike/snowshoe rentals.  I dare you not to reminisce of a simpler time of days gone by - fishing off the pier, picking wild berries, skinny dipping, story telling by the light of the moon ... Estate sale services and consignment available by appointment.  

Stay awhile and enjoy the quaint town of Three Lakes located on the south end of 28 interconnected lakes – the largest chain of inland freshwater lakes in the world. 

Review on Facebook-

Recently I worked with Little Dipper for a two day moving sale. Kristin and her team priced the items (many of them requiring research to find current pricing), organized, displayed, cleaned up and removed unsold items. Advertising included: newspapers, directional road signs and Facebook Marketplace. 

Although it rained the first day, the turnout was impressive and it continued until the road signs came down Saturday afternoon. Kristin had an organized team of helpers to assist shoppers and at the check out area. Giving much thought to the process resulted in a very successful sale. I definitely would not hesitate to recommend LITTLE DIPPER to help unload your excess baggage. Kathy

About the Owner

Kristin Nedset

shop owner

Life is just too short. After my best friend, my mom, passed away from cancer, I had a much different mindset. Dream big I did!  I always wanted to live and work in the town I love, Three Lakes.  My dream is now a reality. 

Combining my passions of thrifting and gardening, I hope to inspire others to create unique and comforting spaces with one of a kind finds and beautiful plants.  Too, I hope to give a shout out to the town of Three Lakes through souvenirs designed by none other than my creative graphic designer sister, Lisa.  But, let’s still keep Three Lakes a small town gem, okay?  

From gutting the place, to pulling out the old electrical, all the painting and staining, and then uncovering those wooden floors...blood, sweat, and tears. But, I DID IT! Now to turn in the tool belt for some outdoor fun-gardening and concentrating on the shop. 

Can’t wait for you to visit!
