This is always a fun place to stop by when in the area. There is something to interest everyone. We were up here with our kids on a rainy day and stopped in for some cold weather gear and found what we were looking for.

We love taking a drive to grand marias for the weekend. We love the small town and all the little specialty stores. It feels like a world away! It's so layer back and relaxing. We like the trading post store too. It's fun to spend a few hours just looking at their little treasures.

This is always a destination for my family to stop by, check things out, and purchase unnecessary things that we love. The place is very clean, affordable, and the management is very friendly.

Fun store, wide variety of local nic nacs as well as an array of trinkets and novelty items galore from indoor decorative goodies to outdoor gear. Nice jewelry, wonderful soaps and candles, great cards and postcards, puzzles, guide books, the list goes on... It could be a one stop shop for every sort of North Shore memorabilia
