RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- Inside the Rib Mountain Goodwill store there is a special place called the Talent Shop.


It's filled with items handmade by Wisconsin senior citizens. Workers say the items make perfect holiday gifts. 


The shop has everything from ornaments to clothing. Some items are made from scratch and others are restored and made new again.    

The artists take a lot of pride in their work.

"Everything has got something. Some charm in it. Somebody has come and put their efforts into it and it's just enjoyable to swhat'sats made," said Delores Anderson, and artist from Wausau. "That's really amazing to me."


The Talent Shop has the same hours as the Goodwill.


The shop has some some special Holiday Open House hours. During these hours people can stop by and talk with the artist about their creations.


The Holiday Open House takes place Nov. 21 and 22 and Dec. 5 and 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
