Lovely place with new owners. Not your typical souvenirs shop, but stocked with handmade items from local artists and the Southwest. Owners very nice!!! Definitely check it out when in St. Ignace; you won't be disappointed!

This is pretty much your average gift shop. The "museum" that is mentioned on their sign out front is a small room in the back with a few artifacts and a diorama.

There is so much stuff in this place, you are sure to find the perfect nick knack to take home with you. The woven blankets are a good value, have had mine for several years & it's held up great.
