The Fortune Favors' Shop Sells More Than Candied Pecans!

Outside of candied pecans, friendly faces, and a "normal" amount of squirrel decorations, local customers can find lots of other delights in our modest east side shop in Madison, WI. And most of the items are local—we love supporting other small businesses in Madison and throughout Wisconsin!

Bundle a few of these items with Nutkrack to create the perfect gift basket or box. We offer gift wrapping and gift bags!

Check out the rotating (and sometimes seasonal) list of products we have in our shop!
