Lets go shopping!

Downtown Oshkosh has so much to offer when it comes to shops and retailers and we are within walking distance to all there is to offer. Not only will you find some unique stores and finds, but  great deals are going on this May as well.

Looking to spruce up your clothing wardrobe? Downtown Oshkosh has many great 2nd hand clothing store options. Atomic Katz is a fantastic store where you will find vintage clothing from the 20′s to the 80′s along with mid century modern furniture. Chic to Chic carries mall  and name brand items 1/2 to 1/3 of the original price.  Frugal Fashion and Klassy Kids are both great stores for men, women and kids.

How about taking home something truly unique. One of our favorite stores is Soiree which offers a few antiques, salvaged curb goodies, and retro funk.  This unique store  brings an eclectic shopping mix to downtown. Crescent Moon offers specializes in antique salvaged or reclaimed material provided for reuse in building restoration, new home construction and decorative arts from vintage flooring, doors or moldings and so much more.   Satori Imports has been in business for 44 years and offers everything from clothing, incense, jewelry to health and body products. A truly unique shopping experience.

How about a good book or music selection? Apple Blossom Books is an adorable shop that is independently owned and family oriented that offers fun special events, a general selection of new and used books and special orders. Just a fun place to shop. Exclusive Company is “Americas oldest full line record store”. Starting out from the trunk of his car to now owning 7 locations in Wisconsin, this store is must to visit.

All this shopping is probably making you hungry, right? Downtown has got that covered too. Gardinas wine bar and cafe offers an interesting and varied wine list, craft beer list, and a great selection of craft bourbons, single malt scotches and rare dessert wines available by the glass, along with pizza, paninis and sandwiches along with specials each and every day. Cranky Pats Pizza, makes a fantastic thin crust pizza piled high with mushrooms(if that is your flavor) along with pasta and a full bar. Caramel Crisp is another historic place to stop into. In business since 1933 they still use the same original recipe for the caramel corn but now offering a full lunch menu, ice cream and the best cookies ever.

Participating downtown stores are offering gift cards.  May 11 (Mothers Day Weekend), Destination Downtown will be happening where the ultimate ladies day is celebrated.  Start the day off on May 11 where you can enjoy lunch, a style show, & tons of prizes and a silent auction. In the afternoon there will be great sales and discounts at local downtown businesses.

Of course, downtown has so much more to offer, but that is just a sampling of the shops you will find just a few steps out our front door.
