Petoskey stones sold at the Battle Creek Gift Shop

Petoskey stones can be hard to find in Southern Michigan, but we have them at our store on Columbia Ave.

They’ve proven popular with travelers visiting Battle Creek and locals who you want to give a gift that is representative of their home state.

Petoskey stones are the state stone, and we sell refrigerator magnets, jewelry, and paperweights made from the fossils.

These worry stones are new at the store. Their grooves fit the thumb and offer an irresistible surface for releasing anxious energy. They’re $8 each.

If you’re looking for more decor items inspired by our state, then browse our copper wall art. We source it from the Upper Peninsula. We have small copper wall hangers in the shape of butterflies, leaves, birds, wolf, bear, and others. Our biggest piece is the fabulous copper Michigan. Each peninsula is sold separately for $68 each. The lower peninsula measures 19 inches tall.

Gifts and Gear for Business Travelers in Battle Creek

When you’re on the road for business, the Battle Creek Gift Shop has many items that will make your travels easier. Less than 3 miles off Interstate 94, we’re also a great source for gifts to take home.

Shemagh scarves

– gloves

– hats

– jackets & hoodies

– shemagh scarves in many colors

Business travelers also need a bag that carries everything they need.

When you’re on the road, you need to stay safe.

We know that business travel is not always about staying at a nice convention center. Many people deliver parts, perform repairs, and attend trainings. If you’re concerned about your security on the road, we sell many personal-safety items. We also sell paracord, handcuff keys, and compasses, which are all good items to possess when you travel.

It’s nice to go home bearing gifts.

Petoskey stones

When it’s time to head home and you want to pass out some goodies, we also have Michigan souvenirs, including Petoskey stones. Our Petoskey stone refrigerator magnets are very popular.

Other items:

Our store is open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The easiest way to get here from I-94 is to use Exit 95 for Helmer Road. Take Helmer Road north and turn right on Columbia Ave. There’s a Meijer’s at that corner. The Battle Creek Gift Shop will be on your left at Columbia’s intersection with 28th Street (first light). Come and visit our quirky family-owned store.
