For the Love of Baraboo
The Baraboo community is blessed with people who love the area. With all Baraboo has to offer it’s easy to boast about our small town. Baraboo is surrounded by beautiful bluffs and scenic Devil’s lake state park. We now have a distillery, a brewery, and two wineries! Our downtown is thriving with shops, restaurants, coffee shops and more.
Showing Baraboo support
To show our support and love for Baraboo we wear our GPOE Gear proudly. Coming together to share their support is Baraboo Social Club, Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce, The Kindness Co., Ski Hi fruit farm and The Greatest Place on Earth. We all have several things we love about Baraboo and we show it everyday with praise for this beautiful driftless area in our apparel.
The Greatest Place on Earth
For the love of Baraboo is The Greatest Place on Earth Brand. It all started with an upbeat and fun lady named Teri Fichter. Terri put together the logo for a church camp. Some years later Lacey Steffes asked to use the logo and collaborated with Gretchen Pointon from Absolute imprints . Lacey’s idea was to create a brand for people to wear proudly and take the Baraboo vibe with them wherever they may go. In 2018 Lacey purchased the GPOE truck in order to create a mobile store and promote other businesses in the area. The GPOE on tour began in the early spring of 2019. We have visited and promoted 15 area businesses in Baraboo and Wisconsin Dells area. The Greatest Place on Earth Brand encourages you to wear your shirts and gear while out and about. It could be Baraboo or it could be your special place by the lake. Where is your greatest place on earth?
The Baraboo Social Club
Baraboo Social Club is owned by Jimmy and Vicki Kimbell. They opened their doors in February 2018 with the intention of creating a barbershop that would prove to be authentic and true to the 1950’s. As soon as you pull up to BSC, you can feel the cool vintage vibe starting with the 50’s sign. Besides a fresh haircut the shop has great conversation in a chill environment. You can purchase Baraboo Social Club merchandise. You can also join the members tag club that allows you to be entered in a monthly haircut giveaway. Recently, Jimmy created shirts saying Keep Baraboo a Secret. Sshhhh, don’t tell anyone how cool Baraboo is!
