This shop is fantastic. It is cute, modern and the girls that work there are delightful. I discovered it when I was visiting for a Packer Game, and have repeatedly come back to see the new fashions that they have available. As soon as you walk in, you feel like you are transported to a swanky boutique in NY, without the outrageous prices.
What to buy: I always scope the racks for fun tops and dresses, then make my way to the fantastic accessories they have available. I bought a Lodis wallet last time I was there, not to mention Rebecca Minkoff shoes.
Tip: Talk to the owners...... tell them exactly what you're looking for. They can pull a ton of things in a second so you won't waste time (and sometimes they pull special items from the back room.)
What to pay: The items in the store are very nice. Expect to pay $100 for a nice top and $200 for a dress, but the the majority of the jewelry is less than $40.
Packer gear? Sure. Cheese? Yea. But did you know that Green Bay has not one, but two great chocolate stores (three if you include neighboring DePere)? Which is the best is open to debate. The best option is to buy from all of them.
On the west side of town (that's the side with Lambeau Field) is Beerntsen's Candy Shop. When I was little it was located in an old brick building with wood floors - very classic. Now it is in a newer building in the same neighborhood. The chocolate is still as good as ever.
The other shop, Kaap's Old World Chocolates, is on the east side, on Webster Ave It used to be downtown in another old building that has been long lost. It was beautiful, with rich wood interior and old mirrors, like stepping into the old country. Grandpa Kaap played kettle drum in the city band for years...but that was decades ago.
Seroogy's Chocolates is located at 144 N. Wisconsin St. in neighboring DePere. This is the preferred store for my cousins, but I don't feel quite the same going here; My first visit wasn't until I was a teenager, past those early formative years.
This is a must see for everyone, even if you are not a Packer fan. I was there for the first time lately and I was blown away by how many different things were made Packer theme. Clothes (socks, ties, belts, shirts, hats, pajamas etc), stationary, bathroom decorations, kitchen dishes, pet supplies, games, furniture, its all here.
What to buy: Anything Packer.
What to pay: A little pricey, as expected. Maybe worth it if you are a fan.
