Blacksmith Clothing Co.: Clothing for Men & Women
By Laurel Ciohon
Are you ready to visit one of the most visually stunning stores I’ve been to in Door County in a long time? Blacksmith Clothing Co., hidden behind Shipwrecked Restaurant in downtown Egg Harbor, has it all. Fantastic, contemporary clothing for men and women, colorful and funky jewelry, accessories, and shoes, and it’s all located within a cool, historic blacksmith shop.
Owner, Lisa Van Laanen, has kept all the original interior characteristics of the blacksmith shop, with high ceilings, wood floors and large exposed beams. Walking in the store, you are overwhelmed with color, texture, and fabulous clothing galore. Although it was raining out on the day I stopped by Blacksmith Clothing Co., the gloomy weather was a distant memory as I walked around the bright clothing store. There was even a large framed photo of the original blacksmith shop hanging on the wall.
As I carefully examined each clothing piece, it occurred to me how many men and women of all ages could shop here. Everything was trendy yet timeless, and there were tons of well-known brands that many will recognize. There were dresses and skirts of all shapes, sizes and colors, jeans and tops for women, shirts and pants for men, and so much more! Colorful bobble necklaces, elegant silver and gold earrings, fun yet classy rings, patterned scarves, unique shoes, oversized bags, and even an awesome “clearance room” filled with discounted previous season fashions and accessories.
I immediately spotted a gorgeous patterned maxi dress hanging in the clearance room. I looked at the price tag ($20 marked down from $80!), made sure it was my size, and promptly handed it to Lisa without even trying it on. What a deal! I ended up wearing to my dad’s retirement dinner the following night and was flooded with compliments on it. It was truly a beautiful dress at an amazing price!
I don’t hesitate when I say that I will be back to Blacksmith Clothing Co. soon! This time I’ll ask my mom or husband to tag along since I know they’ll love it too. Blacksmith Clothing Co. is located at 7806 Horseshoe Bay Road (Cty. G), just a block off of Hwy 42, behind Shipwrecked, in downtown Egg Harbor, and they are open daily. “Like” them on Facebook. 920.868.3216, Blacksmithclothingco.com
