“Got a Sweet Tooth? Head to Gunflint Mercantile to satisfy your craving”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

There is fudge and then there is Gunflint Mercantiles fudge. Peanut butter maple is my favorite with pumpkin a close second and all of the others a tie for third.

Gunflint Mercantile is a somewhat hidden gem in the quaint harbor town of Grand Marais, MN. It's tucked on a side street between 61 and Main Street next to Chuck's Barber Shop.

Chelsea Lueck is the current owner and she's making the fudge and other sweet treats to satisfy your craving. Her caramels are to die for and you can only hope she has a carameled apple for you to try. She's also making one of a kind aprons that make great gifts. You can find soup mixes, mugs, t-shirts and other items in the store as well as candy.

Did I mention the candy? A grand selection of candy across the generations including old fashioned candy sticks, rock candy and my favorite, candy cigarettes.

When you're in Grand Marais, MN be sure to stop in at the Gunflint Mercantile, your tooth will be happy you did.

I have bought many items for myself and for gifts.The kitchen aprons that Chelsea makes are adorable and very afordable. The new Minnesota made B.B.Q. sauce is fantastic, and so are the Pickled Peas. You'll be happy you took the time to come in!!!!

“Delightful fudge and vintage-candy shopping”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

Gunflint Mercantile's owner, Chelsea Lueck, has a really sweet disposition; that is, her store does. She makes all the wonderful fudge treats by hand, using real ingredients (not powder mixes). She provides a vast array of vintage candies, locally made jams and syrups, and her own hand-crafted food mixes in gift jars (such as her coconut-raisin-chocolate chip-pecan bars—delicious!!!), as well as her handmade retro-looking aprons. When we were there, oldies music played over the PA system and added to the nostalgic ambiance. Rest assured, we will never pass through Grand Marais without making a stop in at her charming shop.
