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

They sell all kinds of high quality items. They have clothing, camping stuff, books, decorative things, and treats. We stop here every time we are in town. The owner is really nice and so are the people that work there.

This place has lots of great trinkets and novelties as well as outdoor gear. Everything from stuff for your kitchen and living room, clothes, purses, candles. You name it. Next door is a little coffee hut and it's all along Lake Superior.

Found this place on our adventure to Grand Marais. Hubby sure liked the salt water taffy. I found a book and oggled the glasswear. They seemed to have a lot of stuff to camp or boat but great finds for the average window shopper too!

Everything one needs for hiking, biking, camping, and cold weather sports can be located here under one roof and two floors. Apparel and decorating items are attractively displayed in this charming building near the water of Lake Superior along with all necessary outdoor equipment, shoes, books, and candy.
