About Us

​Old Country Treasures is a brick-and-mortar storefront in the quaint little town of Ida, MI. My name is Karen St. Bernard, and I opened my doors on March 2, 2012. Prior to opening the store, I had been on the road for many years, peddling my handmade wares at craft shows and festivals. I pay homage to my mother, who has been in this business for 40 years and gifted me with creativity and decorating sense.

I share my love of handmade décor, specializing in re-loving many vintage and chippy pieces. Old Country Treasures is filled with one-of-a-kind gifts and primitive finds along with touches of barn siding and farmhouse. Benches, twiggys, berries, birdhouses, pickets, hand stitcheries, and much more. It is one of my joys to listen to customers step back in time when they recall something they have seen in their ancestor's attic or barn. I am here to inspire and guide you in your decorating needs. Special orders are always welcome.

The pleasing aroma in the store is from Olde Thyme Scents and Black Crow Candle Co. candle jars and tarts. I also sell Breaking Beans Coffee and host Coffee Saturdays on the first Saturday of the month.

So sit back, relax and browse through the store. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for stopping by!
