Shops in Duluth can satisfy a traveler who seeks a keepsake from the crystalline waters of Lake Superior or simply needs to fulfill a compulsive shopping habit. There are high quality goods on the shelves from yesteryear to the latest trends.

The regional expressive arts traditions and specialists feature antiques and creative artwork within an array of gallery settings. Father Time is the largest antique mall in Northern Minnesota. 80 dealers present the finest in period pieces, furniture, and estates.

Shoppers who desire something a little newer may prefer one of the contemporary art galleries. Blue Lake Gallery and Icehouse Studios supply photography, visual art, sculptures, and locally made crafts. Silverston Gallery specializes in native Canadian and Alaskan folk art.

The Fitgers Brewery Complex is better suited for discerning retail hounds. Shops, restaurants, a spa, and top-notch accomodations surround the courtyard of this old, lakeside brewery complex.

It was restored in 1984 and once again brews a variety of drafts. The complex is fully accessible from the Lakewalk. The feature shop offers the global boutique clothing brand, United Colors of Benetton.

Miller Hill Mall offers a greater variety of choices than Fitgers. It is a maze of stores from Abercrombie to Radioshack. However, shoppers who are just looking for souvenirs or trinkets should visit the Canal Park Square. It has an affordable selection of antique and small gift shops.
