Cigars, vaporizers, incense, candles, meats, cheese, condiments, candies, purses, tribal mask wall art and peacock feathers. Those are just a few of the items sold at Stevie Gene’s North Street Market, which recently opened in downtown Marquette.
“I just wanted to have a shop that’s different, and this is different,” said owner Steve Eagle. “It’s eclectic, and it’s going to become more different and diversified.”
Eagle earned a business degree from the University of Northern Iowa when he was younger and always hoped to work with people, especially through marketing. He spent 38 years with the U.S. Postal Service, retiring as the postmaster at Cedar Falls. He also owned a gun shop in Denver, Iowa, at one point.
