"This shop has so many fun gift ideas for anyone you may be shopping for, any time of the year! The creativity of all the local Smiths is so impressive and it's fun to see the new items that continue to be added weekly. You need to check this place out when you are in Stillwater!"

"I LOVE this store! There are so many unique things for sale made by local artists. I purchased two works of art for my office and a diffuser that have all my clients commenting on how nice my office looks and smells! I also bought a beautiful handmade bracelet that I have been wearing daily. I will be back for sure!"

"Smith + Trade is not your typical gift shop! It's a Stillwater, MN gem, filled with handcrafted art and products from around our region. We always enjoy a walk around to see what's new, and often find the perfect gift or something unique for our home. The atmosphere is nice, and the staff helpful and welcoming."

What some of our Smiths have to say about their experience with Smith + Trade Mercantile
"Thank you again for creating opportunities for those who craft, and giving them a spotlight to showcase. It is so important to buy/support local, small businesses and you both have given an platform for so many that did not have one previously. I hope you both realize how important this is, you truly are doing good deeds."
– Jennifer Lynn Polansky -- wildlyPURE
"I found Smith + Trade when I was growing my business on Instagram, I contacted Kelli as soon as I heard about the new store opening, as it has always been a dream of mine to sell my art in a physical store. It was so exciting to be a part of the store opening and to see how it has come together so beautifully."
– Caitlin Gerdes -- Pressed Flower Shop
"I could likely never afford to have my own brick-and-mortar for a store front, so working with Kelli and Erin has given me a very fair pricing model that allows me to access some retail space, along with very high traffic of customers to see my work. I have generic order sheets available at the store so I am able to do custom woodworking for anyone who might be interested and asks at the shop."
