SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
Today is Small Business Saturday which means that it is time to get out and support your local fashion boutiques while also finding amazing deals and beautiful clothing. This year, there are three special places we recommend visiting for incredible products and even more incredible deals.
Hazel and Rose:
Where: 945 Broadway St NE #220, Minneapolis, MN 55413
This is a locally owned, sustainably sourced women's fashion boutique. Not only will you find incredible deals such as up to 50 % off selected styles and a gift with purchase, but you will feel good about patronizing a shop with their commitment to ethical fashion. Their sale runs through Monday so do not fret if you can not make it today.
Hours: 10 AM - 5 PM
The Golden Rule and Workshop:
Where: 350 Water St, Excelsior, MN 55331
I love this locally owned boutique in Excelsior. Both my husband and I always find incredible things whenever we make the trip out there. Today, they are doing a local business pop up so you can support many local businesses all in one convenient location! There will be print pop ups from a few amazing photographers as well as a build your own Minny and Paul box which are sure to be a hit this holiday season.
Hours: 10 AM - 6 PM
Valise Boutique and Apothecary:
Where: 244 S Albert St, St Paul, MN 55105
This small, European style boutique is offering all of your winter essentials at 20 % off. You can stock up now on amazing coats by Cocoon which are made from the extra scraps of fabric from the fashion industry and right in the heart of New York City so you know that there is minimal waste and ethical production. If you are looking for some amazing beauty finds, the shop owner has the most amazing recommendations and every product I have tried there has become a beauty favorite (you can read about most of them on our skin care obsessions). I am particularly fond of Arcona. There is also an amazing Alex Monroe baby bee necklace I am dying to get my hands on.
Hours: 11 AM - 5 PM
For the men in our life Martin Patrick 3:
Where: 212 3rd Ave N #106, Minneapolis, MN 55401
This menswear boutique is incredible any time of year but they have some amazing deals this weekend for Small Business Saturday. This has certainly been James's go to store for the past few years and any man will love the focus on creating an elevated mens shopping experience. It similar to the other three boutiques mentioned but with the entire store focused on quality curated menswear and accessories. There is also a home section where he can outfit his life with new furniture or decoration. This is sure to be a go to for your man for years to come too.
Hours: 10 AM - 8 PM
While it may be difficult to hit all three stops today, most of them are offering deals throughout the weekend so shop till you drop and find some amazing (and local) fashion along the way!
