Meet Pat

The Wild Bird Store is a perfect place for me to combine my love of nature, keen eye for color, texture, and presentation in a welcoming shop filled with the things I enjoy: quality bird supplies, unique gifts and home accents, with a wonderful collection of local artisan crafted items. I am always happy to assist you in finding that just right gift for someone special or that perfect item for you or your home.

For seven years I was a very part-time employee of the Wild Bird Store. In 2004, I made the leap from very part-time to very full-time. That is when my husband, Chuck, and I purchased the store from Jim and Sandy Gilbert. The store is housed in a charming, historic building that has been a recognizable fixture in Waconia since it was built in the late 1800’s and was a shoemaker’s shop and his family’s home.

Come in to our shop, located on Main Street in beautiful downtown Waconia, say hello, and enjoy the experience and tradition of warmth and great customer service.
