About the Shop 

In 1994, Ken and Louise bought the 1860, three story building at 206 A Street, McGregor, Iowa. After extensive remodeling with a balcony addition, they moved their business, The Stone Balloon, into the building and renamed it the Paper Moon. In 1997, their daughter Jennifer joined the business and expanded the store into the second story.

The Paper Moon has been described as "the ultimate in therapy shopping." The ground floor hosts a unique array of gifts, including beautiful jewelry, a hand-picked line of cards and postcards, toiletries, household accessories, and tons of bizarre and fun stuff! Our inventory is in constant flux and we work hard to make sure our store is appealing to everyone. The second floor balcony holds children's books and toys. Louise is always on the hunt for the best in entertaining and educational toys and has a special knack for picking out perfect books for children. The third floor contains 1000 square feet of books in a comfortable and charming atmosphere. There we house books for every age and interest. Also on the third floor is a kitchen with cookbooks and fun kitchen accessories and a deck that cozily surveys the sandstone bluff behind the shop.

Customer service is very important to the staff at the Paper Moon. We help with personalized shopping, free gift wrapping, gift certificates, and free delivery in Prairie du Chien, McGregor, and Marquette. We hope this website will be an extension of our customer service.
