We are lucky enough to live in the majestic area that is Duluth, Minnesota, on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior. With its picturesque Canal Park and its bustling downtown, the decision of where to plant our new storefront’s roots was not an easy one. However, the more we dabbled at locations, the more we found ourselves yearning to be a part of something bigger than just a great storefront. All signs pointed to the Lincoln Park Craft District of Duluth. With the help of visionaries this community has risen from a less envious area of Duluth, to a thriving hub of crafters. The businesses that have built this neighborhood curate spectacular food, drinks, products, and exceptional experiences. However, they didn’t do it all on their own. This community embraces collaboration over competition and thrives from the concept that we all do better, the better we all do. The community just makes sense. We can’t wait to welcome you to our new home and introduce you to our new neighborhood. When you visit us at Free Air Life Co. be sure to stop in and say hello to some of our new neighbors as well!
