Grandpa Shorter’s is ever changing with new inventory coming in and selling out. There are so many exciting things to see daily – I literally crave coming into the store to see what is new. Sometimes, I wish I could use the phone and Skype or Face-time with the girls at the store and just take in all the goodness. Get my eyeballs on the new sandals, toys, shirts and home decorating items. I have never seen anything anywhere else like Grandpa Shorter’s. A store packed from top to bottom in handpicked treasures. If you live in the area, I’m a little envious. I’d come in all the time. Which is why, I ask of you this little favor. Go into the store and spend some time to browse the store, both levels. Then head down the street to J.W. Shorter’s and Sons for even more retail therapy.
Since I can’t be at the store personally, I reached out the employees to tell me what they currently love in the store. Here’s a few of their favorite things…
Jennifer Shorter – Owner of Grandpa Shorter’s Gifts
I’m in love with all the Wig Wam socks, and I have this amazing new red purse!!
Sue Westerman, Employee
If I had to pick one thing…this isn’t easy. I would pick this chandelier. I love the birds and leaves along with the few prisms to dance on the walls in the daylight.
Erica Clements, Employee
Leland Blue Ring because they are beautiful and each one is unique.
Taylor Brady, Employee
The “Rainbow Maker” because it catches my eye and makes a fun gift!
Corissa Clark, Employee
Our Minnetonka Sandals are the perfect shoe for any outfit and so comfortable.
Mary Cain, Employee
Petoskey Stones of course! They are a fossilized coral that is unique to the area.
Megan Jennings, Employee
Minnetonka Moccasins for sure! Grandpa Shorter’s first account was Minnetonka and in turn Minnetonka’s first account was Grandpa Shorter’s – this was in 1946. They have always had wonderful shoes and have stayed with the styles. You must come in and check out all the new shoes and sandals we have in – there is something everyone will LOVE and wear a ton.
Shawn Young, Employee
Swedish Cloths because they’re earth friendly, reusable, and super cute for everyone’s kitchen! Everyone needs some of these, the perfect gift and we have endless styles to choose from.
What about me, you might be wondering?? Even though I’m not at the store daily, I’m in love with the hedgehog dryer balls. They make my laundry all fluffy and the sheets look ironed and fresh when they come out of the dryer. Go in today and get these. You’ll thank me.
These are just a few of our favorite things but there are so many great items, we can’t even list them all. Just browse the online store and see for yourself. Tell us, what do YOU see when shopping our online store that you MUST have!
Until next time,
West Coast Shorter Wife
