After two decades of making Michigan-inspired Cedar Shore Soaps and a variety of other goods, we opened an actual store devoted to Michigan made products in the Les Cheneaux Islands! Our soft opening was December 2016, followed by our full time store launch July of 2017.
Applecore offers Michigan made edibles, gifts, home goods, and accessories that celebrate the art and craft of the Great Lakes State. Housed in a 120-year-old farmhouse on the M-134 Pure Michigan Byway, the shop is the retail home of Les Cheneaux-made Cedar Shore Soaps, as well as products from 90+ local and Michigan makers.
As always, Cedar Shore Soaps, spa salts, and bug spray are handmade in Les Cheneaux, with all natural, skin-loving ingredients. Other Applecore offerings include Michigan cherry products, locally roasted coffee-- beans and ground, handmade scarves, leather goods and bags, knit hats and fiber art, original illustrations, art prints, ceramics, natural body care products, up-cycled wool bags, jams, meat and bbq seasonings, mustard, maple products, wood furnishings, stuffed toys, and a limited supply of curated vintage items.
We are still in the process of updating our web site so you can buy nearly all the products sold in the store from the comfort of your couch! Please bear with us during this transition. Thank you so much for your support over the years, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
