Something different in retail has come to Moose Lake.
Hammers and Heels, a shop in the former Tony Stewart Motors building on the north end of Arrowhead Lane, opened its doors on October 9. Many customers stopped to check it out.
The shop will be open again from Thursday, November 7 through Saturday, November 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
"The turnout has been excellent," said Leah Hegge, owner of Hammers and Heels.
Hegge explained that the shop has occasional sales, just once a month.
"It's basically a little pop-up store, usually consisting of re-purposed items, including some older antiques. Everything is very reasonably priced."
Hegge said that occasional sales are popular in the Twin Cities area, Duluth, and there is one in Buffalo.
Shoppers can find a variety of merchandise, such as décor items, scarves and mittens, frames, gift sets, pillows and other items. Refreshments are available.
"We heard about this from a friend," said Hegge. "The friend told us how interesting these occasional sales were.
"We checked it out and thought that we would try it out. The merchandise is different than what you find in most stores. That's a draw."
Hammers and Heels is a branch of Kathy's Country Square, which provides some of the merchandise.
