Boutique shopping for men and women in this hip Minneapolis neighborhood
This area has been a growing hotspot for nightlife and theater-going, but now there’s plenty of daytime action in what is one of Minneapolis’ hottest and fastest growing neighborhoods. The area has mastered the art of being funky and trendy, yet at the same time sophisticated and independent, characteristics that are reflected in its shops. Shinola, the iconic Detroit-based watch brand and Filson, the Seattle-based provider of bags and sportswear, are located next to each other with a coffee shop also housed in the retail space. MartinPatrick3 sells debonair bowties, old-school cufflinks and other goods for the modern, well-dressed man, while Askov Finlayson offers superbly constructed, timeless men’s pieces, including ones under their own brand plus ones like Faribault Woolen Mill, Red Wing Shoes and Barbour. For the ladies, Grethen House sells upscale clothing and accessories by cutting edge designers, D.NOLO provides quality, fashion-forward pieces, and Statement Boutique offers affordable, stylish jewelry. If you’re in the market for home goods, you’ll want to stop at The Foundry, which sells carefully designed and collected bed, bath, kitchen and tabletop objects, among other items.
