Outside the snow was blowing. In the shops, it was warm and cozy. Everywhere I looked today, I saw white. There was a lot of white furniture of the shabby chic variety from chairs, dining tables, armoires, buffets, and china cabinets at The French Flea in Anoka and at The Cottage House in South Minneapolis. Of course, there were colorful items as well including dishes, mirrors, pillows, and other decor.
At Amour Sophie I found subtly colored furniture with French flair, scarves, jewelry, original art, and candles to warm your spirit. I learned that Amour Sophie will be moving to larger quarters next month and sharing space with Bleu Velvet Vintage at 3002 E. 50th St. with an opening date for the combined business of Feb. 11, 6-8 pm and Thu-Sat 10-6. They will be open every Wed-Sat so, alas, this is our last report. And this weekend is your last chance to visit Amour Sophie at 46th & Bloomington.
Bon chance. And happy saling!
