"La dee dah" is a gift shop nestled in the beautiful and historic downtown of Menomonie, WI. We carry unique, high-quality gifts, most from local artists in the area.
Whether you are visiting us online or in person, we hope we have made your day a little bit brighter.

Hi”, my name is Karen

and I opened my brick and

mortar store in 2008(the name of my store came to be after listening to Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" lyrics).


I love what I do and I can't imagine doing anything else.

I enjoy the wonderful guests that visit my

store and appreciate

their patronage. Many

have become my very dear friends. 

Times have changed and so must I.

I know if I want to keep my store open, I need to reach out farther than through my front door.

Thus, I am now offering some of our products online. I hope to add

many others with time. 


I would love to hear your ideas and just what you are thinking concerning our site and store.

Please just send a message off to me if you like. :)

Just a bit more .... probably the most important part..... 


 I have four beautiful and amazing children as well as two lovely daughter-in-law's and a wonderful son-in-law.

They are telling me to reach farther, teaching me how to do so and helping me along the way. I am so truly thankful an blessed.


It really helps to have a supportive husband as well, allowing me to continue down my yellow brick road.

He makes the items out of silverware available on this site.


So.... thank you for letting me share a bit of myself with you. Thank you for visiting my online store and if you are ever in Menomonie, WI, please stop by and say "Hi". I would love to meet you.


 Thank you,





My four children at our fiesta themed birthday gathering.

This is one of my favorite pictures of them.   :)
