Mike’s story

Connecticut native, Michael Walsh, owns this local shop. Mike moved back to this state twenty years ago to help run a local screen-printing and embroidering company and raise four children right here in Mystic.  After a seventeen-year career with them, Mike decided to venture out on his own - just in time for the recession! While it was bad timing for most entrepreneurs, it was the perfect time for Mike to create a fun, relaxing refuge for everyone, including himself. Mine was born. 


I want Mine to be a fun, funky place where people not only shop but explore and feel at home. There are no gimmicks here - our prices are fair and our products are authentic. I feel at peace working at Mine, and I want everyone who comes here to feel the same way. I care about the customers’ experience the most because these interesting, sometimes crazy, people are what make my day and turn this place into much more than a shop.

Thanks for checking us out and passing the word along!
