Road to Gaviidae

Soleil Brule opened its new digs this week in Gaviidae Common 2 on the Nicollet Mall. Shop owner Jennifer Vervoort-Smith gave it a go in downtown Wayzata for almost two years, but she was already relishing the foot traffic in her new storefront when I stopped by yesterday. She made the move just in time for holiday shopping, adding several lines of locally made jewelry to her mix of imported furniture, lighting, textiles, glassware, and candles. Already filled to overflowing with wonderful Moroccan goods, Soleil Brule’s new home is nicely situated between JV & Co. and Neiman Marcus on the Skyway level. The phone number remains 952-476-9600.
