How many staff/volunteers do you employ?
Over 30 Vendors
In 1990, Kelly Elmy purchased DuBois Lumber on Norway St. from Dave Wyman. The building stayed DuBois Lumber until 2006, when Kelly & Shelly decided to make the move down the road to expand their business. Kelly rented out the location for a few years for a re-sale location within the community. After all was said and done the building sat for a few years. In 2015 Marilyn McClain had the idea of creating booths within the store and renting it out to people interested in selling their unique crafts/items. In January 2016 we opened our doors to the public. The strong community that we have here in Grayling and the surrounding areas has helped us have a wonderful couple years as well as continue to grow and flourish over the years.

What is a unique fact about your business that people may not know?
Almost every item sold in the shop is replaced by something different. They always have new and unusual items coming into the store but they usually do not last long; if you go home to think about buying that item it might not be there the next time you come in!
