We love highlighting the Michigan makers in the shop! We’re sharing a few different Michigan made products with you today on the blog:
Little Traverse Bay Candles: Little Traverse Bay Candles are created in Petoskey, Michigan by a local high school student, Elliott. He began making candles in 2022 after receiving a kit from his sister for Christmas. His scents are inspired by Northern Michigan and seek to capture, in a small way, what it's like to live Up North. When he's not pouring wax in his parent's garage, Elliott enjoys playing video games and sports, hanging out with friends or laughing with his family around the campfire.
Ring True: Ring True is a Michigan owned company in Auburn Hills, Michigan. “When you buy from Ring True, you are supporting the livelihood of young human trafficking survivors. These brave young women are able to live and heal in a safe, peaceful community through established partnerships with local and worldwide non profits. Hand making and assembling our products provides them with a sustainable income while they receive therapy and training in life skills for their futures. With your support, our business is committed to continue training and offering careers to at risk women and survivors.” Each ring is a reminder to find your voice and in turn empower others to find their own.
Tic Tac Toe: These tic tac toe boards are made right here in Michigan and such a fun game for you and the kids! The horse + bicycle tic tac toe board is made exclusively for us at Little Luxuries!
Petoskey Stone Gel Candle: Check out these new candles! Each candle is a unique piece of art, filled with Petoskey stones and other gems found in Lake Michigan. Once you are done burning the candle, you are left with beautiful stones from your favorite Great Lakes.
HOMES Bracelets: Another great little luxury to bring home is a HOMES bracelet - the center bead is crafted with real stones from one of the Great Lakes. Each time you wear it, you will always have your favorite spot close to your heart, no matter where life takes you!
Each product tells a story. It is a joy to work with these talented Michigan artists - this is definitely not all of the Michigan artists we work with, but simply a handful!

When you shop at Little Luxuries, you’re not only supporting the shop, you’re supporting over 200 vendors. Over 50 of our vendors are from Michigan, with a handful of them living right on Mackinac Island! It feel so special to have one store filled with so many beautiful goodies - the shop is filled with happiness, uniqueness and a lot of love for Mackinac.
We hope that you take some time today to shop on the website or stop in this weekend - we're open daily 9:30 am - 10pm.
