hello lovely readers…

so, it is no secret that i love to buy darling things.  handmade goods.  vintage treasures.  flowers.  lace.  ribbon.  fabric.  pottery i have brought back from Europe.  things that remind me of Europe.  i also love flea markets & yard sales…the joy of bringing home a sweet little find.

i love to imagine a found item’s potential – where could it go in our house?  in my floral studio?  or what if i repurposed it, gave it a fresh coat of paint with a set of darling knobs?  how about the excitement of giving a beautiful handcrafted gift to a friend?

this year, we decided to take this love of vintage & handmade local goods and bring it to you…in the form of a pop-up shop!!

A Day in Provence will be hosting vintage pop-up shops throughout certain 2-3 day weekends this year in our new NE Minneapolis studio in the heart of the arts district (all happening in between my lovely flower weddings)!

and, we are bringing a little bit more of our love for Europe to you in the name…pop-up shop.  more of a chic & stylish British term.  they have been trendy in the UK for quite some time & have made their way over to the US & are resonating well with shoppers locally.

in this industry, i have been lucky to collaborate with many creative artists.  the energy is wholesome & fulfilling & encouraging.  i have been inspired by other shop owners locally & throughout my travels over the years – and wanted to bring something closer to home.

we will bring you items that we love to shop for…featuring one-of-a-kind repurposed vintage goods, painted furniture, darling found items & handmade items by local artisans.  our concept will bring you a fresh new look each time to keep it exciting and to keep the anticipation level high – wondering what fun the next one will bring!  we all love the thrill of finding a deal or a piece we just can’t live without!

here’s a sneak peek of what shoppers saw in mid-March…

please check (and like!) our Facebook page for details on each upcoming event.  we will also give you sneak peeks of each sale and feature our local artists along the way.

come visit us soon at our new shared studio space at 1330 Quincy St NE Minneapolis.  we are located right above the Architectural Antiques building in the heart of the arts district.

to bring others together, to surround myself with creative people, to have bundles of good energy in my day – that…makes me happy.  it is things like this that make the world go round.

we thank you for your continued support along the way.  and yes, we will have floral fun incorporated along the way.  lots of hand-tied bouquets will be available at our “european market” in May – peonies, tulips & more!  be sure to tell all of your friends about it & we look forward to bringing you many beautiful things at the next vintage pop-up shop real soon!!  xoxo
