Linda Bucknell, the owner of Antique Manor in Stewartville, has plans for the Racine building that use to house the popular 7th Rib restaurant.
I thought I’d try something different,” she says.
So she and her husband Bruce, who also owns Bruce Bucknelll Construction, bought the 33-year-old building along U.S. 63 near Racine in August.
Now they are renovating it with plans to move the antique shop into about 6,000-square-feet of it. The shop, which has been in Stewartville for 12 years, will also have a name change. Antique manor will become Horse Feathers. “I just thought it would be a fun name,” Bucknell says.
The rest of old Rib – around 3,000-square-feet – will be leased out for retail.
So when will Horse Feathers be ready to open?
“We’re not on any time schedule,” she says. “Some time in mid-spring…maybe.”
