Located 5 blocks north of College Avenue, and just slightly off the beaten path, a treasure trove of unique gifts and home decor awaits anyone who is looking for something different and special, for themselves or for someone else. Built in 1906, what was once Sprister Meat Market, now houses a myriad of amazing re-purposed architectural finds, new and reclaimed oddities, wares from local artists, floral accents, rugs, candles and one of a kind items, too numerous to mention.
Pulling up to the curb, you instantly feel as though you are about to take a step back in time. Much of the character of the original building still remains. The shopping experience you are about to embark on is enough of a treat in itself. But, wait until you step out into the backyard and patio! An original meat smoking house still stands, and the welcoming patio décor and invitation to sit and stay awhile may have you doing just that. The backyard space is there for you to sit, relax and reflect, or better yet, consider hosting a gathering of your own. The Cedar Harbor owners welcome groups of up to 15 people at no charge. The setting would be a very special place indeed for baby or bridal showers, book clubs, team building, or grab your best friends and a bottle of wine, and enjoy a memorable girl’s night out!
You’ll find Cedar Harbor at 611 North Morrison Street in Appleton WI. Store hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: 10am – 5pm. Thursday: 10am – 6pm. The store is closed Sunday and Monday.
