A Gathering of Friends is open this weekend at Bachman’s on Lyndale with an amazing collection of vintage goods assembled under one roof. There’s rusty, chippy, shabby, and shiny old things from vases to signs, garden furniture to upholstered chairs, farm tools to polished tables. In other words, you will see many lovely pieces for inside and out. There’s the added pleasure of free parking, free admission, and Patrick’s Cafe plus all the plants, flowers and decor of Bachman’s Flagship Store. Hours are Thursday and Friday 9 AM to 8 PM, Saturday 9 AM to 6 PM, and Sunday 10 AM to 3 PM inside Bachman’s at 6010 Lyndale Avenue South in Minneapolis (just north of the Crosstown Hwy. 62).
