When Tracy Dyer of Urban Junket and Jen Stack of Relish Minds PR decided to raise awareness of women-owned companies that have helped establish the Twin Cities design scene, who knew that Maiden Minnesota would become a tradition? This year’s third annual event features more than 35 Minnesota-based, women-owned companies that sell jewelry, accessories, home décor items, and more. We love the space-efficient organizers from Madesmart, vibrant home fragrances from Illume, and colorful stained-glass art from Crazy Cats Design.
Maiden Minnesota 2010 will take place today, November 4th, at the Graves 601 Hotel from 5 to 10 p.m. A silent auction during the event will support Free Arts Minnesota, a local non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the healing powers of art and mentorship into the lives of abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families. Tickets are $20 in advance or $30 at the door.
