Michele Much was born and raised in Manawa, and has dreamed of owning her own salon as long as she has been cutting hair. The day after graduating from Cosmetology School she was hired at Styles II right here in Manawa. She has had several opportunities to purchase her own salon; however the timing wasn’t quite right, until now. Michele learned of an opportunity in downtown Manawa and the timing seemed just right, the building which was the home of the Barber Shop for many years has taken on a new life as Bridge Street Salon. It was purchased and completely renovated in just 2 months’ time. Bridge Street Salon opened their doors February 9, 2015. Ashlee Hass is available for styles, cuts, pedicures, manicures. Michele has a lot of experience caring for and applying acrylic nails, gel polishes are also available. There is an art to using electric clippers, and Miranda has plenty of experience as a barber, while offering her expertise as a stylist as well. Michele, Ashlee and Miranda work well together and enjoy making Waupaca County beautiful!
Two massaging pedicure chairs beckon for a spring spa day or really any time of year. The salon is available for a full range of beauty to assist the entire bridal party in being picture perfect for that special day. Prom can be extra special with a beautiful hair style, manicure and pedicure.
The beautiful renovation of this downtown building needs to be seen, stop on in today and enjoy being pampered at Bridge Street Salon.

I have been working on the latest you tube video for our you tube channel, Breakfast with Judy. Along with my brother in law, Thomas, who has been working with me regarding the editing of the video, we decided to split the footage into Part 1 and Part 2. This has been a new adventure as I shot this with my cell phone and so that presented some new challenges. I have to admit at times it doesn’t really look like I am enjoying making the scones, however nothing could be further from the truth. I just found it challenging to shoot the video, set the camera and remember to smile all at the same time. I hope you enjoy this latest you tube video, please subscribe to the Breakfast with Judy channel, and as always thank you for watching Breakfast with Judy, at the Lindsay House Bed and Breakfast, Where the joy of living is served daily.

A wine tasting will include 5 wines. You may also enjoy an artisan cheese and charcuterie platter along with your wine. Winemaker’s Daughter is also offering craft beer; flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars as well as Wisconsin made jellies and dips. It definitely has been a lot of fun and hard work getting to this point and meeting a lot of great people along the way. We are so excited to continue this journey here in Manawa with our business. Jamie and Allen would like to thank everyone who has given them positive comments and for the outpouring of friendship and kindness from the Manawa community as well as the businesses.

For 2015 the Lindsay House has decided to introduce a series of you tube videos. Our tips and recipes so that our guests and future guests might enjoy making these easy to follow recipes at home. So a schedule of events was drawn up. A screenplay/script/shoot schedule was written. In making the first video a learning curve, to say the least, presented itself. I come at this goal from the vantage point of “oh yeah, that camera did video some time ago, it’s all good, it will be fine” however life not to mention the shooting of you tube videos rarely go as planned. So after my anti technology for lack of a better word tirade, we got to work problem solving. Thanks to a friend, we had a camera to rely on and we did a “practice” shoot. Once the practice shoot was done, we jumped right into the making of the first “Breakfast with Judy” video. Stay tuned for the release of our first video!
