Yesterday while out running some errands I allowed myself a treat.
No, I did not stop for ice cream....
Something even better!
I ventured into Minneapolis to one of my favorite sources for vintage/stylish home accessories - a store called Style Minneapolis.
The shop's owner Shayne is an energetic creative talent, with an eye for scouting great vintage wares - with a Euro influence - to stock her inspiration-filled store.
You may have even seen Shayne on an episode of HGTV's "Decorating Cents"!
She has a knack for finding pieces with "great bones" and then working her magic with her paint brush or having her fabulous seamstress make darling slipcovers with dressmaker details!
And while these pictures might look like a high-end, out of reach priced store - that is not the case! Shayne believes style does not have to cost a bundle, a gal after my own heart!
In these days of mass produced, large corporate stores I think it is so important to support our creative and unique locally owned boutiques. I was happy to do that yesterday!
If you live in the Minneapolis area or are coming to town for the Junk Bonanza - please visit Shayne's store, Style Minneapolis at 4501 Nicollet Avenue South in Minneapolis.
