Holland Michigan Shopping

Holland Michigan Shopping-When visiting a new area, I like to know what the city is known for so I can purchase quality, handcrafted items from talented local artisans.  Souvenirs like these are meaningful for years after your trip!  

Holland Bowl Mill

120 James Street, Holland, MI 49424.  The Holland Bowl Mill has been featured on the Science & Discovery Channel's "How It's Made" series with a segment on wooden bowls. 

Choose from a variety of woods with the option of engraving a personalized message.  Handmade at its finest!

"Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping."

Nelis' Dutch Village

What kind of website would this be if I didn't mention wooden shoes?  I mean really.  That would be a definite disservice. 

So on that note, visit Nelis' Dutch Village for handmade wooden shoes, wooden bowls, Christmas ornaments and so much more! 

You can also purchase tulip bulbs, hand-painted Delftware, dutch food, cheeses and chocolates!!  A beautiful canal runs through the village so there's photo opportunities galore. 

Numerous shade trees line the walks so you can find a cool place to rest while sipping a cold beverage and soaking in the sights.  Plus the little shops are so charming!  (Just so you are aware, there's an entrance fee to the village.)
