What is a Maker Emporium?

The Maker Movement

The maker movement has encouraged individuals and communities to design, create, and build, driven by a passion for creating things themselves.

Many makers have been able to turn their hobbies and projects into small businesses, selling handmade goods.

We feature handcrafted items by local makers

Selling specialty items provides customers with unique local finds, while we support makers and artisans. You won’t find what we offer online. Stay connected to the maker and entrepreneur and buy handcrafted.

The MN Association of Small Cities recently held it's annual Fall Retreat Board Meeting in Lanesboro. Paddle On hosted us in the private meeting room for this 2-day event and we could not be more pleased! Everything was simply wonderful. The newly remodeled room was the perfect size for our group of 18 (and could have seated more). The décor' and ambiance is fantastic. The food was very tasty. Their coffees are crazy good. And, the service was stellar! As a meeting planner, I highly recommend Paddle On for your next meeting location!
