Our Story


In 2001, we opened our first storefront known as The Gift Basket Connection.  We specialized in gifts from around Michigan that were used to create beautiful gift baskets.

In 2010, we opened our Riverplace Shops Location in Frankenmuth along the beautiful Cass River.  We became the premier specialty store that offered both Michigan-Made products and souvenirs that represent  The Great Lakes State.  In 2018, we opened our second store located in the Birch Run Premium Outlets.

Our online store offers products both Made in Michigan and Made in the USA.

Our customers often compliment us about our beautiful stores, great customer service, attentiveness, nice variety, and unique gifts that can be found at The Michigan Shoppe.

Whether you decide to shop online or at either of our locations in Frankenmuth or Birch Run,  we hope you are happy and satisfied with your overall shopping experience, and desire to come back.
