E’s Emporium at 3911 Minnehaha Avenue South in Minneapolis will be open May 17-19 with curated vintage finds such as these pieces. Hours are Fri-Sat 12-7 and Sun 12-5. Saturday includes a Pop Cycle pop up shop with lots of bicycle accessories.
The Mother’s Day Market at Dunn Bros. in Eden Prairie is in full swing until 4 today and from 9 – 3 on Sunday. Great gifts for your mom or yourself including herbs and flowering plants, furniture, trinkets, pillows and jewelry. There are lovely original bracelets created as part of the healing process by a cancer survivor who donates a bracelet to a patient for each one sold. This photo shows a few of the pretty vintage pieces this morning.
Another special market today is a pop-up store featuring six vendors next door to The Urban Cottage. Check it out at 52nd and Bloomington in South Minneapolis.
Vintage, botanicals, furniture, home decor, jewelry, gifts & more at the Smith-Douglas-More Homestead (Dunn Bros. Coffee), 8107 Eden Prairie Rd., Eden Prairie. 952-934-0145 Hours are Sat 9 am – 4 pm and Sun 9 am – 3 pm.
Pansies and real green grass will make your day at the Urban Cottage at 52nd and Bloomington Avenue South in Minneapolis. The photo above is just a glimpse of what you’ll find: cool lamps, tables, jewelry, and accessories are waiting to add a springtime feel to your living space. A warm welcome and treats add to a wonderful shopping experience.
While you’re in South Minneapolis, also note that The Cottage House at 43rd and Chicago has opened their new space next door! After many months of remodeling and adding a powder room, Ted and Company have created a wonderful addition to the “Cottage” with bigger, brighter rooms next door. I saw many SOLD signs on big pieces when I was there, but there will be new finds to greet you this weekend.
Friday, April 19th, could be your lucky day! One shopper, and three friends, will win lunch at the Canterbury Card Club with the original founder of Junk Market and editor of Junk Market Style magazine, Ki Nassauer. For a chance to win, you must register on the blog at www.junkbonanza.com by this Friday, April 12 at 5 pm. The winner will be notified by email next Monday.
It sounds like a winner of an idea!
At Junket: Tossed and Found, I was warmly greeted by owner Julie who is passionate about recycling old stuff and finding a new home for used pieces. Her store is a combination flea market and houseware history museum.
A visit to A Gathering of Friends allows you not only a great antiquing experience, but a casual lunch and a chance to buy your first outdoor planter of the season brimming with pansies!
The Crowned Cottage treats you to a sophisticated milieu with a homey feel. (See photo above).
The Crowned Cottage is rich with old world treasures as well as bright throw pillows for spring. The fab tote bags are abundant, but for a real look of spring, what could be better than a glorious floral wreath?! Mine is radiating spring sunshine on my front door despite the current weather!
There will be many opportunities to shop for quaint antiques, funky junk, cleverly repurposed pieces, and special treasures this month. Semi-annual events provide loads of goodies beyond the normal monthly sales. You will see some of your favorite local vendors at these shows plus dealers from farther away.
A Gathering of Friends Antiques Market runs this Thursday through Sunday, April 4, 5, 6 & 7 at the Bachman’s Flagship Minneapolis store. Architectural pieces, garden finds, primitives, European wares, cottage and industrial looks will be creatively displayed. Free admission and parking.
Junk Bonanza takes over Canterbury Park in Shakopee on Thursday through Saturday, April 18, 19 & 20. More than 140 juried vendors will offer vintage finds, good junk, architectural salvage, antiques and artisan-repurposed pieces. General admission is $9 per day with Early Bird tickets available too.
Jiggety Junk in St. Paul is a twice yearly sale which runs April 25, 26 & 27. On a much smaller scale, the gals host a friendly yet professional shopping experience in the carriage house of a vintage home. Treasures may range from antique to mid-century furniture, fabric, dishes, housewares, and garden decor.
Please check each listing by date for more information on ALL April sales. Photos will be coming soon.
