This store has things that are truly made in Switzerland. Very authentic merchandise rather than the usual generic Chinese made mug with the Swiss cross stamped on it. Even though the town has become somewhat Americanized after many generations, the local people try very hard...More

I really like this store and their offerings. Cute things to remember your trip to New Glarus or pretend you went to Switzerland. Flags, dog leashed, magnets, clothing, and many other things to decorate your table, yourself, your auto, or your pet.

Please don't miss this European treasure trove. It is a very small shop with very beautiful European treasures. It is not a typical "souvenir shop." Besides some local cheese, they have gorgeous Swiss ornaments, Fondue and Raclette makers, beautiful lace runners, and other well made...More

Esther's European Imports is located in the quaint town of New Glarus, a town with a great Swiss heritage. Items available are abundant and varied, and reminded me of shopping in Davos, Switzerland. This is a great gift shop with something for everyone!
