Edina Art Fair: Beyond the Booths…

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

50th & France retailers are getting smarter about taking advantage of the Edina Art Fair crowd. (You’d think it would be a big weekend for stores, given the deluge of visitors, but actually, stores often suffer with all the commotion in front of their doors.) This year, they’re finding ways to entice us inside.

N’etc, for one, is hosting a k.h. designs trunk show featuring the two brand new lines by jewelry artist Karla Haugen including leather and crystal combinations as well as pearls, garnets and other materials strung and knotted on colored silk cord. Haugen is always a hit at Maiden Minnesota, but other than the Prior Lake Farmer’s Market, she rarely exhibits in the Twin Cities.

It also pays to stop in Grethen House for a big clearance sale. And check out Amore & Fede’s denim fashion show in the parking lot behind the store 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

Rewards for closet cleaning

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Reduce the closet clutter, do good for the world by recycling perfectly good clothes and justify a new purchase with a discounts. Sounds like a formula for success. Amore & Fede is launching a Denim Exchange program at its 50th & France store this week – following in the footsteps of Bibelot, which added resale at its Como store last year. I bet we’ll see more of this repurposing and rewarding from local retailers  anxious to keep us shopping. Here’s how it works at Amore & Fede: earn up to 25 “exchange dollars” for your gently worn jeans – maximize your earnings by bringing in brands sold at the store, like Miss Me, True Religion and Rock & Republic. The used jeans will be available for sale, along with Amore & Fede’s huge stock of new denim. The store plans to expand its exchange program to cruisewear in the coming weeks. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
