Liisa Karkkainen's famous shop lies just off Highway 11/17 on picturesque Lakeshore Drive, about 20 minutes' drive east of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Opened in 1970 and known by generations of locals and area visitors as the best place to buy fresh and Finnish-style smoked local fish, the Fish Shop has expanded over the years to encompass more of Liisa's Finn heritage and now houses a separate showroom featuring Finnish foods, crafts and furniture as well as one of the most remarkable selections of amethyst specimens and art in the area.
