THE SCOOP

The collection is inspired by nature and nostalgia, modernizing traditions we’ve known and loved forever.  Available at kickstandpress.com and Forage Modern Workshop, 4023 E.

Dress to Impress

New this fall, from Ann McCabe, owner of Rick Rack in Minneapolis: Lily & Violet, a retail website focused on feminine, modern women’s clothing. Think dresses, skirts, and accessories—plus, some one-of-a-kind European flea-market finds. Best part: most pieces ring in under $100!

Personal Shopping on a Dime

Michelle Dustin’s first job as a teen was at an Arc’s Value Village. Years later, she’s back: as a personal shopper. “I’m often complimented on what I’m wearing. When I tell people I got it at a thrift store, they say they get overwhelmed and leave before finding anything,” she says. To revamp your wardrobe on the cheap, just book an appointment, give Dustin a few vital stats, and walk into an Arc’s to find a rack full of complete-outfit picks. The hour-plus session is free, so you can save your cash for the clothes. “They can walk away with essentially a whole new wardrobe,” she says.
