Inspired by a love of Mackinac Island and the simple delights that make it home, Nicole took a leap of faith and opened Little Luxuries of Mackinac Island in May 2009. She had little retail experience at the time, but Nicole knew her weekend shopping trips to cute stores and small towns with mom growing up had to count for something! Things like using a cash register were eventually learned, but traveling the country and our beautiful state for unique gifts was something Nicole knew how to do by heart.
Now entering its ninth year, Little Luxuries has blossomed into a charming gift shop that’s filled to the brim with home accents, body products, stationery, accessories, handmade goods, and more. We carry more than 200 artists and 75% of our items are Michigan-made. Our store celebrates the spontaneous discoveries that happen when you slow down, stroll around, and embrace life’s simple joys.
We have a sister store, Little Luxuries Artists Market, est. 2015. Here you will find an ever-changing curated collection of handmade goods from established and emerging artists and makers. Follow us @littleluxuriesartistsmarket
Little Luxuries is open from May to October, but you can shop us online year-round. We’re also here year-round, by the way. Visit us at our grocery store on the island, Doud’s Market.
