Several shops scattered across South Minneapolis are open this weekend. Beginning on Friday, you can start on Minnehaha Avenue at E’s Emporium and then work your way westward. Refinished furniture is a specialty at Amour Sophie with dining tables, side tables, dressers, and desks mostly in soft neutral colors. You’ll also find lots of frames, mirrors and artwork plus small decor items. The hand lotions are worth testing too. Amour Sophie is located at 3002 East 50th St. (that’s between Hiawatha Ave. and Lake Nokomis and south of Minnehaha Pkwy). The shop is open Friday and Saturday from 11 to 6.
After a stop at The Cottage House’s bonus sale Friday-Sunday from 10-5 at 4304 Chicago, make a beeline to Your Lucky Day’s spring cleaning sale. This is the first in-store sale of 2016 since moving their shop on-line! It’s described as an old-fashioned rummage sale, but with these two retailers running the show, you can expect a curated and tidy affair. It will certainly be well worth a visit with dishes, books, craft supplies, jewelry, and so so much more. Your Lucky Day is at 4159 Grand Ave. South next to Royal Grounds Coffee. Hours are Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 5. Happy saling!
