HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- A man who is Holland-born and bred is keeping the art of wooden shoe making alive.  Rick Klompmaker says that’s his name means wooden shoemaker.  He also says his father traced that name back to the 1600s.  Klompmaker says he likes working with wood and talking to people so he really enjoys Tulip Time when he gets to do both.  He will be at Marktplaats at the Holland Civic Center during the rest of Tulip Time every day between 10 A.M. and 6 P.M.
