The backyard at Urban Cottage is open with flowering plants and fun furniture for your outdoor space. Inside is a wonderful selection of tables, chairs, chests, lamps, glassware, signs, vintage clothes, and beautiful jewelry. Decor items run the gamut from shiny to rusty. Gift ideas include tea towels and French-inspired containers as well as greeting cards, candles and soaps. A special event this month is a Garden Party Benefit on Thursday from 4 to 8 to support cancer patients. All this is happening at 5157 Bloomington Avenue South in Minneapolis this weekend. Urban Cottage hours are Wednesday night until 7, Thursday from 10 to 8, Friday and Saturday 10 to 6, and Sunday from 10 to 5. Happy saling!
