We started our gift shop at our home by New York Mills in the mid 80's. In 1991 we moved to Perham. Then in April of 1998 after totally renovating a 100 year old building also in Perham we added the Gathering Grounds Coffee Shoppe to our Place in the Country gift shop. Lynn Johnson along with her daughter Kari have been in the gift business for over 20 years. We offer a wonderful collection of gifts for kids and adults along with some wonderful antiques and other unique items to fill your home. Our coffee shop is just as well known for our fabulous soup and sandwich lunches as it is for our coffee and desserts! When you're in Perham be sure to stop in for a little shopping and a lunch or coffee where Lynn, Kari, and their fantastic crew will always greet you with a friendly smile !
