The Decker Lake Trading Post is a historic institution. Prior to 1990, it was a Second-Hand store. However, when Lawrence Hallgren purchased the business, enlarged it, and added a gas station, everything changed.
The Trading Post’s collection increased to include antiques, quirky trinkets, practical sundries, or fine china. The Trading Post became a “spot with character,” to quote an earlier reviewer. It’s a hodgepodge of stuff, to be sure, but there is an order to the madness and it’s a beautiful thing.
