There still are Craft Sales this fall
It is old news, that many events and festivals were canceled this year, in an effort to control the spread of Covid-19. But I know of two fun shopping opportunities that will go on as planned:
The St Croix Boutique in Hudson is the newest location of Minnesota Boutiques by the same people who bring you Candleberry in Edina, Majestic Oaks in Ham Lake/Coon Rapids and Rice Creek in New Brighton. These are best in Minnesota' award winning boutiques now with a location in Wisconsin open every day through December 13th . All Creation is excited to offer our children's toys and seasonal throw pillows in this fun store. See their Facebook page for more information and pictures that will have you planning a drive to Hudson.
Schedule another shopping trip the first Saturday of December to the Christmas Bazaar at St Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Osseo/Brooklyn Park where you will find many different crafters selling gifts and decor, unique, handcrafted one-of-a-kind items that simply cannot be found in department stores. Open 9 to 5, with proper social distancing and lots of hand sanitizer! I'll be there with a display of children's toys and throw pillows.
Minnesota Boutiques has already scheduled the Spring shows and we all look forward to when fun shopping will be easier! But we don't have to give up on the Christmas season with these two great opportunities. Support your local businesses and score great things to help make your holidays shine. I'll see you there!
