Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is fabulous here in beautiful Northern Michigan. The sun is shining and it’s absolutely gorgeous outside today and almost in the mid 30’s!! And, even though Punxsutawney Phil claims to have seen his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter, I do not believe it one bit. Spring seems to be right around the corner. It feels almost spring like outside today, which is why I am feeling hopeful. Okay, it’s kind of cold but here in Northern Michigan you see people wearing shorts when it’s 50 degrees! Heck, I saw a man wearing shorts walking outside the Petoskey Post Office earlier today. Spring will be here before we know it!
Today’s blog post goes back to a Petoskey classic, the gorgeous Petoskey Stone. Mainly found in Little Traverse Bay, Petoskey Stones are well known throughout the state. It’s even the official stone of Michigan. How cool is that? Grandpa Shorter’s carries multiple Petoskey Stone jewelry pieces but did you know they also carry larger items and gifts for the home?
With the wedding season approaching now is the perfect time to browse Grandpa Shorter’s selection of unique Petoskey Stone gift ideas. Don’t see anything you like online?
