Spring bling and early Easter decorations are popping up to keep us looking forward to the coming season. Pussy willows, succulents, garden statuary, and a variety of colored eggs were evident strolling through both Flamingos and Urban Cottage. There were bright posters and big furniture plus lots of small trinkets at Flamingos. Urban Cottage looked especially light and bright with the sun shining in the front and back windows and the new lighter walls. Urban has a nice mix of shiny and weathered, urban and country. Silver accessories and sparkling glassware join wall hangings of roosters and cows. Judging from the many shoppers, this weekend’s sales are favorites. Hours are 10 to 6 through Sunday at Flamingos Divine Finds at 3404 Cedar Avenue South. Urban Cottage is open Saturday from 10 to 6 and Sunday from 10 to 5 at 5157 Bloomington Avenue South. Happy saling!
