The French Flea in downtown Anoka is brimming with shabby chic furniture, original art, and nods to nautical with seashells and summery pillows. The rattan chaise would add add comfort and style to a porch while the back garden has lovely decor for the garden.
Antique Alley in Osseo has country antiques, painted furniture, repurposed items, and crafted accessories. The small drop-leaf table on wheels would be perfect in a small kitchen or for a portable craft table.
Mama’s Happy in Independence specializes in repainted furniture but offers so much more. Clothing fashioned by recycling garments, original art, jewelry from old bits and bobs are all to be found here. The addition of outposts in St. Paul and St. Louis Park has not diminished the allure of the home of the Mamas on the far west edge of Minneapolis.
All these shops are worth the drive this weekend. For particulars, check This Month’s Sales.
