LKN Mercantile & Creamery

Lake Norman Mercantile & Creamery is a family friendly modern day general store where we serve LKN's most delicious hand crafted artisan ice cream alongside gifts, apparel, home decor and more.

We started our online business in 2020 as a size inclusive women's boutique (Queen City Trading Co.) and in 2022 we added The LKN Mercantile to offer a luxurious, but approachable, in person shopping experience!

I originally became a customer via the Facebook boutique group, but I am a lifelong and avid supporter of KJ, Patrick! The body positivity, supportive mentality, and true family atmosphere and absolute LOVE for their customers and what they do truly makes QCTC stand out above the rest. Not to mention KJ’s truly exquisite taste and selections that meet all budgets! Taking a chance on QCTC is not a risk at all, you won’t regret it!
