Cited as a must see in the New York Times travel section, the Paper Moon is a one of a kind book and gift store located in McGregor, Iowa-just one block from the Mississippi River!  

Ken, Louise, and Jennifer opened the Paper Moon in 1994. The historic and renovated 1860’s building proudly went green with solar heat in 2009.

​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! The second level balcony holds an array of new books and handmade housewares; the third level is 1,000 square feet of children’s books and toys in a comfortable and charming atmosphere. Inventory is in constant flux and we work hard to make sure the store has something for everyone. 

​Customer service is very important to staff members at the Paper Moon. They can help with personalized shopping, free gift wrapping, gift certificates, and free delivery in Prairie du Chien, McGregor, and Marquette. Stop by and visit!
