Welcome to Door County, WI, the Cape Cod of the Midwest
Door County Scrimshanders is located in the middle of the beautiful Door Peninsula in Northeast Wisconsin in the quaint shopping complex of Green Gables. In this tiny store, the Kiracofe family continues the time honored tradition of gifts made with the uniquely American art of scrimshaw. Resident scrimshander and owner, Gary Kiracofe, displays his artwork along with the creations of over 30 other artisans. Beloved by many and visited by summer guests year after year, Scrimshanders offers wares of jewelry, baskets, fine knives, pottery and other treasures – all tediously made by hand here in America.
Scrimshanders is open every day May through October and weekends only during the months of April, November, and December. During the summer season, Gary gives free scrimshaw demonstrations weekly in the shop. To see our artists’ most recent creations, visit our Facebook page!
