Specialty Shopping in the Willmar Lakes Area

One of my favorite things to do is spend the day browsing at our local specialty and occasional shops.

Recently, I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon in New London. This charming community is home to a wide variety of shops and tons of charm and character.

First stop was to Ali J Boutique. It is my daughter’s favorite store and we are always sure to find a great new outfit. They have a women’s clothing, accessories, shoes, gifts, and their personal stylists are always eager to help you find just the right look!

Next stop, Distressed Treasures. Distressed Treasures is a home decor store with re-purposed/refurbished furniture and home decor. The store has a mix of Shabby Chic, French Country, Rustic, Retro and Vintage. It is such a fun store and gave me all kinds of wonderful ideas to re-purpose items in my own home.

No trip to New London is complete, without a visit to the Millpond Mercantile. You will find a large variety of gifts and home decor at the Millpond Mercantile. I love this place. I always find great gift items and so many things that I need. OK, maybe not need but definitely want! You could spend hours looking at all the things in this 4,000 square foot shop.

There are so many other great shops in New London including The Happy Sol, Bead Jam, Three Sisters Furnishings and Shoppe 14 to name a few.
