You don’t have to travel far out of the cities to feel totally transported. Drive the scenic Great River Road, which ambles along the Mississippi, passing through tiny river towns that have inspired generations of poets, artists, and, yes, retailers. The newest must-stop shop on the way to Pepin is Cultural Cloth, a colorful showcase of textiles hand-woven by women in India, Afghanistan, and Guatemala. The caliber of goods is worthy of an IMS show-room, but the trio of partners prefers the charm of Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, a small community with a big reputation for arts. Getting there only enhances the experience.
