August is the month to savor hot, sunny days. Remember to include a visit to your favorite occasional stores in South Minneapolis this weekend. If you are entertaining or relaxing on the patio, you can find a small table, a unique ice bucket, or a rusty sign at Urban Cottage to enhance the experience. For indoor use there is a great selection of chests and tables not to mention a creamy white pie cupboard and old kitchen ice chest. Lamps, chairs, mirrors, prints, pillows and glassware are abundant. Vintage clothing and jewelry is offered in many styles. One-of-a-kind decor pieces make every shopping trip to a vintage store a fun adventure. Urban Cottage is open Wednesday from 12 to 7, Thursday from 10 to 7, Friday and Saturday from 10 to 6 and on Sunday from 10 to 5 at 5157 Bloomington Avenue South. Happy saling!
