Yooperlites.com was established in 2017 when Erik Rintamaki made the discovery of a lifetime. Little did he know then that finding 3 small glowing orange rocks would change his life forever, and make him into a small business owner.
Now in 2020 the Covid 19 pandemic has decimated small businesses throughout the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
To help small businesses from the U.P. of Michigan the #YOOPERSTRONG initiative was started to show that Yoopers can stand together and that we can help each other out. It started out with the hashtag, and then moved to everyone hanging paper hearts in windows with the words YOOPERSTRONG.
Earlier in May we started selling Yooperlites Heart shaped magnets and sold out in just one day!
So now I have 20 more magnet heart shaped Yooperlites made by Lapidary artist Jeff Smith of Cadillac Michigan. Buying one of these hearts helps multiple Michigan small businesses.
Thank you for your continued support, and stay #YOOPERSTRONG
