This stuff is delicious. I tried to get it and another syrup locally but it was sold out. A quick Google search led me to Shady Lady Mercantile. I got what I was looking for and so much more! The packaging was well done and so thoughtful. It was like opening a party in a box! The syrups I ordered came so fast, too! Thank you, Shady Lady!

I’m so excited to try these items. I’ve been looking for a good quality prickly pear cocktail mix since our wedding. I appreciate your customer service.

These bloody mary packets were made for our weekend backpacking girls' trip and I am stoked to have found this store! I will definitely be shopping here again!

The sampler packet is absolutely perfect and exactly what I was looking for! I’ve got my order in and added a couple of extra goodies to try out just for me :)

I absolutely love this company! This past Christmas we received the funniest cocktail napkins and wonderful mixers to make festive cocktails. The products sold in this store are top notch, original, and oh so yummy! They make for great gifts and/or personal items to entertain your guests or spice up your quiet night at home. Highly recommended!

Not only is the Hot Toddy mix absolutely delicious, but Shady Lady really came through for me in a pinch. Before I knew about this shop, I purchased similar mixers for client projects through other vendors. But this holiday, the other vendor let me know that they couldn't get the product to me.

A desperate web search yielded Shady Lady. I emailed, and got a response within an hour that Shady Lady could help and get me the product in time. They did... AND followed up to make sure all was well. Shady Lady is my new go-to. Thank you so much!

The handwritten note you included on the receipt for my order of rose cordial charmed me very much. The rose cordial is delicious and I will certainly order more in the very near future.
