Friends, there is but one shopping event you must get yourself to, and that’s Sunday’s NorthernGrade one-day market at the Grain Belt Bottling House in Northeast Minneapolis.
Founders Pierrepont Hicks will be there, along with other American-made brands such as Red Wing, J.W. Hulme, Duluth Pack, Faribault Woolen Mills, and stores such as BlackBlue, Askov Finlayson, and Forage Modern Workshop. In a lovely surprise, local-turned-international knitwear designer man of mystery Kevin Kramp will be showcasing some of his work—his scarves are gorgeous.
NorthernGrade is also doing a great giveaway—if you want to enter to win Pierrepont Hicks ties or a J.W. Hulme x Woolrich limited-edition tote, you can sign up for their mailing list and enter to win at the door, too! (That collaboration is to die for, seriously.)
It’s a perfect way to shop American Made for the holidays and get to know the makers behind the brands. Got a guy who’s impossible to shop for? This is the place to nail your holiday gift giving this season for him. And, frankly, the people-watching is awesome: some of Minneapolis’s fashion obsessives will be in attendance. See you there!
11 a.m. – 7 p.m. 79 Thirteenth Ave. NE, Mpls.
