It was a treat to preview the new occasional version of Old World Antiques, a favorite shop on Excelsior Blvd. There’s a good mix of vintage home decor, pottery, and furniture including some fine European tables, armoires, and mirrors. You’ll also find linens, upholstered pieces, vintage jewelry, and chocolates. (Yes, there will be samples!) Grand Opening weekend is October 3 – 6. Hours are Thursday – Sat. 10 – 6 and Sun. 10 – 4. Located in St. Louis Park at 6532 West Lake Street (between Hwy 7 and Minnetonka Blvd., across the street from the SLP football field). Also open Oct. 24 -27.
