    Local Winners of the Best of the Lake Awards

    Madeline Island Candles best of the lakeThe results are in, and we are thrilled! Madeline Island Candles has been named one of Wisconsin's Best Gift Shops in 2015 by Lake Superior Magazine’s annual Best of the Lake Awards.  Thank you to all of our wonderful customers for your votes and support, we couldn't be more proud!

    Madeline Island Gift Shop

    We've had a busy year at Madeline Island Candles, moving our Gift Shop to its new location, across the way from the Ferry landing. We've remodeled, we've decorated, we've accessorized - we've spent our time making this new shop our home.

    Our ever-growing garden and patio area have become a beautiful addition to the shop, and the retail expansion has allowed us to feature more crafts and goods created by local artisans - and of course, more hand-poured soy candles.

    recent customer review beautifully described our shop:

    "Spent over an hour between walking through the gorgeous well tended gardens with all kinds of lush perennial flowers, then up to the entrance of the lovely candle shop.

    So much to choose from, such a wide inventory including homemade soaps, note cards, candle holders, birdhouses, and many other unique items. My favorite were the jar candles which will serve as gifts as well as gracing my home.

    The employees are most helpful, and everything I bought was wrapped as a gift."

    Our Little Pocket of Wisconsin:

    Before you board the ferry to visit us on Madeline Island, take a look around the wonderful town of Bayfield, Wisconsin, just across the water.
    Last week's episode of Around the Corner with John McGivern focuses on Bayfield, highlights a few of our island's local businesses, and shows a nice overview of our region.

    Crafting for Community

    Why We Love Woods Hall Craft Shop

    Woods Hall Madeline IslandWoods Hall Craft Shop has been hosting a unique community-focused crafting project this month: weaving a large-scale rug for the Madeline Island Library. Weavers and non-weavers alike have been asked to join in, weaving a row or two of the 8 foot x 12 1/2 foot rug.

    We give 10% of our profits to Woods Hall - and here's why.

    Woods Hall Madeline IslandMadeline Island, like many islands in the US, has a seasonal economy, making for frugal, long winters.  In the 1950s, Woods Hall was founded by St. John's Church to address this concern: to keep the islanders busy and build community by weaving rugs and creating crafts in the winter, and helping their economy when those goods sold in the summer.

    To this day, Woods Hall provides a venue for many islanders to increase their earnings, and a place for local artisans and craftsman to gather, workshop, and create.

    Spring is in the Air

    Inside the Madeline Island Candles Shop

    Yes, it's cold outside (a chilly -17 degrees this morning!) but in the candle shop we are preparing for Spring. Amy is hard at work in the pillar studio; Gloria is focusing on container candles, tealights and travel tins; I'm working on new product ideas and presentation improvements for the shop; and Glenn is - well, Glenn is making sure that we are all on task!
    We know that soon, the daffodils will be up in the outside garden, new migratory birds will be at the bird feeder and friends from near and far - friends that we know and friends that we will meet for the first time - will be walking up the ramp, onto the deck, and through our door.
    All of us are looking forward to seeing you in the shop - but until then, best wishes from this extraordinary island that we call home - Madeline.

    Island Winter

    Staying Warm and Keeping Busy

    It's been a busy - and very active! - winter so far on Madeline Island, and everyone is finding ways to cross the snow and ice.

    The ice road is still open, with island residents slowly driving their cars back and forth across the great ice expanse between the Island and Bayfield, Wisconsin.

    Another very playful means of transportation: the annual Sled Dog Races! Jonas P. Heinzerling created this wonderful video of the event:

    Last weekend, Wisconsin Public Television's program "Wisconsin From The Air" sent a helicopter film crew to follow a group of bicyclists crossing the ice road to Madeline Island. Other locals joined on foot, snowshoes, and skis.

    However you are getting around this winter, stay safe & warm!

  • Make it a Snow Day

    We do look forward to Snow Days on Madeline Island.

    Some folks stay at home and drink hot chocolate, playing board games all day. Other island residents head outdoors, make snow angels and watch the beautiful, soft white snow coat the pines.

    And some years, when the ice is right, we take the trip across the ice to the mainland side and look at the amazing beautify of the ice caves in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

    Snow Days - a wonderful, peaceful break from the daily routine.
