Looking for a vintage shopping destination this weekend? A Rare Bird is a favorite shop among several wonderful shops selling antiques and vintage goods at 50th and Xerxes in southwest Minneapolis. The emphasis is on French carved and gilded furniture, mirrors and chandeliers, but there is a wealth of other styles including rustic, industrial, mid-century, and garden pieces. You’ll find a wide array of original paintings and intricate handmade ornaments. A Rare Bird and sister shop, A Rare Bird 2, are located on West 50th Street on the east side of Xerxes Avenue South and are open every Thursday through Saturday from 11 to 5 and Sunday afternoons. Happy saling!
