New shops are opening all over. This weekend you can choose to go east or west to visit a new occasional shop. In addition to some of your old favorites, of course.
On the east side is Thistle in the St. Anthony Park area of St. Paul. Hours are Thur 12-8, Fri 12-5, Sat 10-5, Sun 12-4. Repurposed and vintage; check it out on Facebook or 2228 Como Ave.
Or go west to Hopkins where Garden Party Gallery is located at 1213 Main St. Hours are Thu-Sat 9-6, Sun 12-5. I was able to preview last Saturday and here’s a sample of the re-styled and re-imagined home and garden furniture and decor.
