If you find yourself in Northern Wisconsin on Highway 2, look up The Fig Leaf in Iron River.
Located at 7530 U.S. Highway 2, on the main road, it is easy to find. Another plus is they offer very reasonable prices.
Step into the entryway vestibule and then into the shop, and get ready to start your shopping. Merchandise is lined up and waiting. There are several rooms with items on display. The front area houses the women’s clothing, knick knacks, glassware, jewelry, and a free rack. There is a men’s section with other household and craft items, a combination shoe and book nook, and a children’s items room. Be sure to check out the jewelry in the case by the check out counter too.
Staff have been friendly when we stop in. In addition to providing affordable used goods and items for their community, the Fig Leaf donates monies to fund a variety of community interests. This small town thrift shop is a win-win for the community and their customers both!
