Shopping

t’s not surprising that Cedarburg has been voted No. 1 for Best Shopping time and time again. The city’s historic downtown offers a multitude of shopping opportunities, and all are within easy walking distance of one another. All you have to do is park your car in one of the many parking lots dotted around town, grab your bag and off you go.

Don’t expect to find any big box stores in Cedarburg. Instead, saunter and browse your way along Washington Avenue, perhaps starting on the north end where it crosses Bridge Street, and start your day at the Cedar Creek Settlement. This restored 1864 woolen mill was saved from the wrecking ball by local residents Jim and Sandy Pape almost 50 years ago, and has been converted into a delightful mix of specialty shops, restaurants and an award-winning winery. Visit the cool, limestone cellars where Cedar Creek wine is fermented, aged and bottled, and be sure
to take the time to sample a glass or two.

Climb the stairs to Cedarburg’s oldest pottery shop (est. 1978) featuring a fine array of Wisconsin pottery, and browse through stores offering the latest in women’s apparel, artisan and European gift shops, artists’ studios and more. If you stop by the corner store that specializes in olive oils and balsamic vinegars, you might be lucky enough to catch one of its popular cooking classes. Then cross the street to check out the whimsical garden furniture made from recycled plastic which is so attractive you’ll want to bring it into your home.

Anyone with a sweet tooth might think they’ve died and gone to heaven as there is not one, but several stores catering specifically to candy lovers, each with its own specialty … think caramel apples covered in Belgian chocolate, old-time specialty candies, fudge and nuts of every shape and size, some chocolate covered and others purely savory.

As you wander south on Washington Avenue, you’ll be tempted by one-of-a-kind boutiques, eclectic art galleries, an antique lighting shop, distinctive jewelry stores offering the latest in custom designs as well as fine antique pieces. You’ll find vintage furnishings, resale furniture, consignment clothing stores, artists’ co-ops and specialty products ranging from popcorn, cookie cutters, herbs, spices and teas, plus other gourmet products not commonly found elsewhere. There are garden ornaments that will make you smile and a fairytale-like toy store featuring American-made products fit for young princes and princesses. Cedarburg can indeed be considered a kind of “shopping heaven.”
