The History of the Kristmas Kringle Shoppe
The Kristmas Kringle Shoppe was the vision of Grace and Jerry Mielke. Their love of Christmas and their retail business acumen gave them the desire to provide a special retail environment where the magic of Christmas comes to life and is celebrated all year long.
First established in 1978, the Kristmas Kringle Shoppe started within the building of their already existing unrelated businesses located in downtown Fond du Lac.
In 1994 the Kristmas Kringle Shoppe moved to its present location on South Main Street in Fond du Lac. Jerry actually created a model of the Bavarian style structure in his garage before having it built, but Jerry’s imagination didn’t stop there. Once inside you will find yourself on a European Village Street with real pine trees, street lamps and the facades of many quaint shops and buildings such as a gingerbread house, church and a tower. Its an enchanting atmosphere you can get lost in.
We invite you to browse and shop within the charm of Jerry’s European village. You’ll enjoy all the sights, sounds and scents of Christmas while you find your special gift or treasure.
