Rooted co-owner Jeff Nygren-Weaver stands next to a sampling of the diverse inventory at his new Mancelona store that offers all Michigan-made products. More than 30 artists' creations are available at Rooted, located on US-131 next to the Iron Skillet.

MANCELONA – If you ask Jeff Nygren-Weaver, there is a backstory to every item for sale in Rooted. The co-owner of the new shop in Mancelona, located next door to the Iron Skillet, can point to any one of the local or Michigan-made products and tell you who the artist or company is behind it.

Walking into Rooted, shoppers will notice many familiar brands and items. There’s Northwoods Soda, Ashby’s Ice Cream and Michigan-shaped oven mitts. But there are also brands and handmade items that are likely new to most customers.

Owners Jeff and Mike Nygren-Weaver did their research in order to stock the store in time for May 26, opening day. They searched online, at trade shows, and followed recommendations from other art and craft enthusiasts to find what they needed to fill their shelves.
