MW Coastal Goods | Connecticut Business

If you haven't heard of MW Coastal Goods before, the MW stands for Mike and Wendy and you guessed it - their shop is home to the cutest coastal goods around! A little snapshot right from their website about their inspiration: "Mike's interest in woodworking and love of fishing, combined with Wendy's professional art background and passion for design, is reflected in their signature coastal style."

Their official business adventure began back in 2012 and expanded to this unique shop space a little over a year ago. When you first step into the store it's hard to imagine it was ever anything other than an adorable coastal boutique; however, I had the pleasure of being around and watching the space come to life as they transformed it from a garage into the cute and inviting storefront it is today - the beautiful combination of her style and design and his woodworking and craftsmanship on display.  

They are passionate about the local area and also about supporting other small businesses. Their heart for animals resulted in a corner dedicated to Huckleberry, their beloved lab that passed in February 2017. Fast forward to August 2018 when we both adopted puppies around the same time and bonded over Archie and Hooper's spontaneous playdates. MW was the first place I went to find Archie a new leash appropriate for his debut in a multitude of photoshoots (oh, the life of a dog with a photographer mom ;-D).

The shop located at Noank Shipyard is not the only place you can find their beautifully crafted product; you can also see some of their items in shops in downtown Mystic, Connecticut as well as displayed in hotels and online stores. Though, if you're ever in the area I highly recommend making it to Noank as you're sure to receive some sloppy kisses from Hooper and enjoy a delightful chat with Wendy on the dock.

And to all the couples out there in the midst of wedding planning: MW Coastal Goods is the perfect place to pick out fabulous bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts. From buoy shavers, bar glasses, flasks, and bottle openers for the men to tumblers, wine glasses, coasters, and wine stoppers for the ladies - if you're getting married at one of the many amazing local coastal venues this shop is a great place to search for items sure to wow your friends and family.
