Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Unique, handmade gifts: Holiday Marketplace annual sale Oct. 24th & 25th

Just for fun!, Special events

Two very talented ladies hold a wonderful sale every October in a home in my neighborhood.

This year their sale is Friday, Oct. 24th from 7pm to 10pm, and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.




Together they transform artist Heidi Dutcher Bohn's Brookfield home into a shoppers wonderland. You have to see it to believe it!






Heidi specializes in hand painted items: Seasonal decorations for fall and winter, picture frames, and tiles.

She paints kitchen items as well.



I believe artist Kim Keays' specialty is wire art, wire decorated glassware, and jewelry work.





Every room is features beautiful displays of their creations.





Many ceramic items are available too. Seems like a great way to start your Christmas shopping or get something new for your home.








The Holiday Marketplace house is located at 13645 Tulane Street, Brookfield, WI  53005.

Tulane crosses Sunny Slope Road  2 blocks north of Greenfield, or about 3/4 miles south of Bluemound. Turn east on Tulane. The house is on the south side of the street, almost to Edwards Street. Just follow the signs.  

If you need more information, just call 262-352-5939 or 262-366-5565.
