I can’t stop using exclamation points this October! Thursday has three great events in store, so let’s get right to it.
Starting today and running through the 9th is the W7 Collective‘s October weekend “gallery + event + social.” It’s no secret that I love this pop-up-like event—it was another one of my Best Of picks this year. Great artists, artisans, and other goodies, all from Minnesota? Sold. It’s a great place to kick off your holiday gift buying (I know it’s early, but I’m just sayin’). Meet artists, mingle with others, and get great goods at stellar prices, all while supporting the local economy. Win!
Thymes Warehouse Sale
Also starting today is the Annual Warehouse Sale for locally based body-care purveyors Thymes. Inside the warehouse you’ll find all the Thymes’ great products—lotions, body washes, candles, home fragrances, gift sets, and more—at steeply discounted prices. Stock up!
Note that this year’s sale has moved to a new location: 63 St. Anthony Pkwy., Mpls. Today and Friday’s hours run 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday the warehouse will be open from 9 a.m.–2 p.m.
Bibelot Night Out on Grand Avenue
Head on over to Grand Avenue tonight from 5–8 p.m. to partake in the October Bibelot Night Out on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. You can “spin to win” up to 30 percent off your entire purchase at Bibelot, snack on Wuollet’s cookies, and win gift certificates from Wuollet’s Bakery. Plus, other shops on Grand are offering deals, too: up to 30 percent off at Creative Kidstuff and 15 percent off at accessories mecca Fringe and Shu Global Footwear.
