Slant Avenue Mercantile offers many unique items

Posted in Lanesboro Features

There is a place in Fillmore County that can put a different slant in your attitude. A place where you can get lost in all of the diverse and unique offerings available to patrons of the store. The name of that business is Slant Avenue Mercantile in Lanesboro, Minn.

Owner Patrick Danz takes extra care to try and find items which are not found in other stores in town so residents and visitors to the area do not see duplicate items as they shop. The items located in Slant Avenue Mercantile are so varied it is hard to even begin describing them.

Let’s begin with the coffee. Slant Avenue coffee is a favorite of many locals with the “Slant Blend” and “Velvet Hammer” blends being among the most popular. The coffee can be purchased as whole bean or ground and Patrick always has a hot pot of coffee ready to share along with real cream, brown sugar, and almost anything else one could ask for in their coffee.

Then there is the tea with a favorite brand being Republic of Tea. Patrick sees many residents coming in as they are running low on tea which can be purchased in tea bags or loose leaf in many tasty flavors. Tea pots and presses are also on the shelves, so putting together a gift basket of a selection of teas with a Slant Avenue Mercantile coffee mug would be perfect for that person on your gift list that loves tea or for a friend who is feeling under the weather.

The greeting cards at Slant Avenue Mercantile will have customers finding themselves teary-eyed either after reading sentimental cards or comical cards for all occasions and in distinctive styles. Stationary is also a big seller and makes a special gift in this electronic world.

Think back to your childhood and you will most likely conger up images of playing with a jack-in-the-box, a spinning top, a magic drawing slate, silly putty, and pin the tail on the donkey; all of which can be found at Slant Avenue Mercantile. Other options for kids are puzzles, craft projects, robots, tin toy collectibles, and many other items kids may have never seen before.

Other items for kids include books, clothing, hats, and many special gift ideas. Gift ideas for adults are bountiful and a very unique gift is sure to be found at Slant Avenue Mercantile no matter what the personality is of the person receiving the gift as there are so many options to choose from.
