Things were flying out the door and off the sidewalk this morning at The Middle Sister at 416 Snelling Ave. S. in St. Paul. Perhaps the re-opening of Snelling Avenue at I-94 added to the number of shoppers. Or it could be the wide selection of furniture and accessories which draws customers. China, lamps, artwork, jewelry, handmade bags, frames, Pot de Creme paints, and lots of furniture are some of what you’ll find at The Middle Sister which is open until 5 today and 12-5 Sunday.
After going a mile or so west on Randolph, you’ll come to Belle Junque at 474 Cleveland Ave. S. which is home to a selection of mainly vintage and repurposed furniture and home decor in the French farmhouse style. Cabinets, desks, tables, frames, and mirrors are accented with bell jars, bunches of lavender, and assorted flea market finds with a French flair. Belle Junque is open today and tomorrow 12-5. Happy saling!
