Check It Out!

Just when I thought I could take no more of this harsh Minnesota winter the sun has decided to shine, the snow has melted and the temperatures have warmed to comfortable levels - whoo hoo!

I visited with my friend Ki Nassauer this week, the uber-creative woman behind the Junk Market Style books, the Junk Bonanza antiques show and most notably, the co-editor of the new Flea Market Style magazine. Just when you think this woman cannot possibly have time to do more, you find out that yes, she does!

Ki and I met at Bachman's, a local home and garden center that hired Ki to help them with a new and different retail strategy - incorporating vintage and vintage-inspired wares into their stores. I was able to walk around the store and visit the five different vintage "departments", Country Modern, Cottage, Euro, City/Loft and Kids.

Besides great vintage finds, you can purchase custom pillows made by Nancy Polacek and jewelry by the fabulous Lisa Souers.

And just so you could feel like you got to come along, I snapped a few pictures for you.

I know most of you are not from the Minneapolis area, but if you get a chance to visit, you can visit the Bachman's on Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis and soon in Plymouth and Eden Prairie to check it out for yourself!

It always fun to visit with Ki - as you might imagine she is a bundle of energy and creativity that I always find inspiring (not to mention, sweet as can be too).
