“Interesting stuff in the store, really expensive though!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We enjoyed browsing through this store, there were plenty of things to check out. However, the prices were a bit too high for our taste! $60 for a hooded sweatshirt???? We ended up going down the street to a different store and got similar items for half the price.

“Interesting store well worth a visit”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

My wife and I stopped late Feburary on our brief winter vacation in the area. The store was a wide variety of camping, hiking and winter gear. Beyond that some local wares. We had a great time exploring the large store. Prices are not cheap but they do have high quality gear.

Well worth a stop

“Fun place to go and visit”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Fun to visit while exploring the area w/ a large variety of camping, hiking supplies, clothing, kitschy things and even jewelry, candles, books about the region and even some toys. The building is large, open and just plain fun to walk around. Kind of like a rustic Target in that it has a large variety of items for sale, but Target wishes it could have the atmosphere and personality of this place! Charming retail place.

“An amazing place to shop!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This historic shop sells everything. It's an outfitter, and a gift shop, and a housewares shop, and a jewelry store, and a toy store. It sells clothes and shoes and books. It's an incredible place to browse for things you never knew you needed or wanted. The large wooden building is beautiful and full of charmingly creaking wood and a grand wooden staircase. A must see in Grand Marais. If I won a shopping spree and could choose any store in the world, it might well be this one!
