While Mineral Point is known for its good old-fashioned shopping experience — like the candlight shopping coming up this Saturday, December 5, 2015 — there are a few local retailers that have online shopping.
If you want to spend this cyber Monday shopping Mineral Point, here are some links to help you out.
Artful Apparel – beautiful hand-woven hats, scarves and jackets
Foundry Books – haiku books and journals
MayDay Press – hand-made letter press cards and notebooks
Mitchell Hardware – tons of stuff – including Christmas decorations – with free shipping to Mitchell’s
Sirius Sunlight Glass Studio – glass ornaments, marbles and stained glass
Springhouse Candles – hand-poured candles and candle accessories
Wantoot – modern, American, handmade jewelry, wearables, pottery, furniture, 2D art, sculpture and glass
Windy Ridge Pottery – hand-crafted, kiln-fired pottery by Joe and Christie Cole (see photo below for examples)
By shopping these online stores you can spend your Cyber Monday supporting these Mineral Point retailers.
In addition, you can phone many of the area businesses listed on the newly updated Mineral Point website and order gift certificates.
Of course, the online retailers are only a small sample of the shopping available in Mineral Point, since the vast majority of stores and galleries have no online shopping option. In fact, some have no online presence at all.
The best way to experience Mineral Point is to come to town, meet the people who make the stuff, and enjoy the local charm. But, if you can’t make it, then shop Mineral Point online.
