As the saying goes, sometimes you just have to create your own sunshine. Or, even better, go shopping at Sunshine & Co.! Sunshine & Co., located at the Founders Square Shops in Fish Creek, makes even the grayest day seem sunny! Packed to the brim inside and out with colorful garden art and beautiful gifts, Sunshine & Co. is one of Door County's favorite gift shops.
Housed in a 1850's log cabin, Sunshine & Co. has everything from birdbaths and wind chimes, to home accents and candles, to jewelry and stationary. As I poked around the quaint shop one particularly sunny day (filled with many other people doing the exact same!), I excitedly chose some fabulous goodies for myself.
My picks were a metal wall hanging shaped as a retro camper (it looks exactly like my real-life retro camper – same color, too!), a fairy garden-sized retro camper figurine, and a ceramic/wood inspirational decoration for my desk that read "AIM HIGH." Honestly, I could have picked out much more – I'll just have to go back! My other favorites included wind chimes made of repurposed silverware and cups, and the pet section with cute dog and cat gifts.
As you stroll outside their large stone patio, you are immersed in whimsical garden stakes and weathervanes, statuary and yard flags, art metal flowers, frogs, and goats. Sunshine & Co. also has many unique Door County souvenirs and gifts to take home from your vacation. There is definitely something for everyone!
Open daily in the summer from 10am–9pm, and weekends during the off-season. Located in front of Nicolet Bank at Founders Square, corner of Hwy 42 and Main Street. 920.868.3202, sunshine-and-company.com.
