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 fifteenth 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 vendors from across the country. Our store celebrates the spontaneous discoveries that happen when you slow down, stroll around, and embrace life’s simple joys.

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 or our condos, Above Mackinac.

"I always find that special something, whether I'm looking for something for myself or a souvenir to take home for someone else. Always look forward to going back to see what's fresh and new each year." - Tanya S.

"This was our first time to the boutique. My husband and I loved it. He got a special framed wood map of Michigan that showed the depths of the Great Lakes. I loved all the special jewelry. We will make sure to come back again!" - Jamie T.
