Downtown Oshkosh is a great place to wander around and go shopping for the day. While you could walk down Main Street and pop into any store that speaks to you, there are a couple of gems that are just too good to miss. Whether you are looking for something for yourself, holiday shopping for friends and family, or just perusing, Oshkosh has something for everyone.
If you are looking for that unique outfit for a special occasion or the perfect accent jewelry to pull your look together, or your new favorite top, Market Boutique on Main is the place to go. There are chic tops and dresses plus fun print leggings inside. You can also pick up gear representing the best state in America! There are onesies, sweaters, shirts, and mugs with witty quips about Oshkosh, Lake Winnebago, and Wisconsin! Around the holiday season, the boutique is absolutely charming with holiday gifts and decor dressing the storefront.
You’ll want to reserve a whole afternoon to peruse this unique shop. Inside the doors, you will find a myriad of games from classic board games to new innovative card games, console games, and an assortment of craft items. Board games are making a come back and you can gift a present that will bring the whole family together night after night for a little friendly competition and endless laughs. Test out your new game on-site and play through a game in their adventuristic tables in the store. Pick up a game to play during game nights with friends, gift a classic to your nieces and nephews to bring back age-old traditions, or head in for a fun date night.
Soiree et al. is the place you want to go if you are looking for something unique or shopping for a very particular friend.

With the upcoming holiday season, stop on by and you may just be able to find something for every person on your list!
Eroding Winds Record Shop is a place where you could easily lose track of time. The store offers a wide selection of new and used records, CDs, and even cassette tapes. You can find your favorite songs and artists or search for musicians right out of Wisconsin inside the numerous albums in the store.

Take a step back in time when you visit AtomicKatz in Oshkosh. You’ll be amazed by the incredible mid-century pieces ranging from the 1920s through the 1980s.

Even if you aren’t looking for anything special, this store is great to peruse at your own pace as you will find items that bring back memories around every corner.
Some people think of Caramel Crisp Corner as the place to get a perfect lunch, others know it as the sweet treat shop with a wide selection of ice creams, cookies, and treats, while some go there to find the perfect gifts for their friends and family. Personally, I think each aspect brings its own unique magic to the store. Grab a bite to eat and wander around the charming toy store and you’ll discover little treasures around every corner or check out the gift shop to find all your favorite Oshkosh branded gear.
Everything about Brinkley’s Boutique is chic. Every time you walk through the store you will find a new shirt you need to try on or a piece of jewelry to add to your collection. During the summer months, you will find flowy tops and trendy shoes and during the winter you can find cozy sweaters, fashionable cardigans, and stylish booties. Brinkley is the name of the owner’s granddaughter, a beautiful girl with Williams Syndrome and a portion of every purchase is donated to the Williams Syndrome Association to help young children like Brinkley.
