A new comic book store opened Oct. 27 at 1148 Union Ave. in downtown Sheboygan.

Adrian Hackl, owner of the buglesaid his shop was the only comic book store in Sheboygan to carry all-new monthly comics.

The store also sells vintage comics, collectibles, apparel, posters, graphic novels, and comic book supplies.

Hackle got the inspiration to open The Bugle after traveling to Oshkosh with his friend every month for new comics.

“We loved going there, but one day I just decided, ‘Well, why can’t I do that here? There’s nobody doing it,'” Hackl said.

Among some of The Bugle’s comic specials are “Ultimate Fallout #4”, a comic which has the first appearance of Miles Morales from “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”, as well as “Ms. Marvel #1”. .

These, among other comics at the store, are sealed and filed.

“I’m just trying to offer something new to the area,” Hackl said. “I’m excited to hopefully build on this and start a comic book culture.”

Le Bugle is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Old thyme spice shop

Plymouth town center hosted Old Thyme Spice Shop on October 23.

Owners and sisters Diana Bauer and Patti Morris used to travel to Milwaukee to their favorite spice and ingredient store, but that store closed amid the pandemic.

So the sisters teamed up to find a location in Plymouth to open their own spice shop instead.

Old Thyme Spice Shop sells spices, herbs, seasonings, teas and other cooking ingredients.

“It’s mostly spice-centric,” Bauer said. “Typical things, but also things you can’t find at the grocery store.”

Various types of curries, chilies (whole and powdered), special marinades and more are sold at the shop.

“We probably have a hundred different spices right now,” Bauer said.

The shop also sells kitchen gadgets such as milk frothers and garlic presses.

Spices and seasonings are imported from a distributor in New York who buys worldwide.

“Freshness, flavor, it’s all there in terms of quality,” Bauer said.

Bauer said that once the shop is more established, they plan to offer recipes and classes teaching how to pair and use some of the spices they sell.

“We are committed to the community, committed to providing our customers with a new experience in different tastes,” Bauer said.

Old Thyme Spice Shop is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
