It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas Shopping Season


Published:


Happy December, my little shoppers! If you go anywhere—anywhere at all!—this weekend, you’ll probably be at a sale or within a stone’s throw of one. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, after all.

In case you want to make a plan, here are a few of my weekend picks.

If you’re looking for fabulous ladies’ goods, then motor on over to June Resale from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight. June owner Daune Stinson is hosting Katie McShane and Lois Eliason’s luxe post- bags (they’ll have their newly minted winter collection, plus some past faves); Shayne + Coco, Style Minneapolis owner Shayne Barness’s line of gorgeous, re-styled vintage jewelry; and Annie Fink’s fun and famous arm warmers and yoga accessories. Plus, Stinson’s own collection of outstanding designer consignment goods—think flawless Prada, Marc Jacobs, and other high-end pieces. 3406 Lyndale Ave. S., Mpls., 612-354-3970.

If handmade crafts are more your thing, then you’d do well to head over to Midtown Global Market on Lake Street for No Coast Craft O Rama. Browse nearly 100 vendors selling everything from photography to apparel to jewelry and more. Perfect stop for holiday gifts and an easy, already-curated way to buy local goods. Today from 3 p.m .-8 p.m. and tomorrow from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. 920 E. Lake St., Mpls., 612-872-4041.

Didn’t get enough of local crafts at No Coast? Hop to Snap Crafted Pop, the new pop-up event created by Jen Knoch of Radar Concierge (Read all about her holiday shopping tips—I interviewed her last year for her work at Radar.) This dog-friendly event will feature lots of local vendors at Cadence Cornelius’ photo studio, selling everything from pet beds to kitchen goods, letterpress to soap. A pet photographer will be on hand to shoot your favorite four-legged friend for your outgoing holiday cards! See also: champagne and gift-wrapping services! Northwind Lofts, 2400 N. Second St., Mpls.

Last but not least, Grethen House is hosting a pop-up trunk sale at the shop for the Yigal Azrouel Spring 2012 collection—take 10 percent off Azrouel and Cut25 pieces (and there will be accessories!). 4930 France Ave. S., Edina, 952-926-8725.
