We have the winter blahs. Do you? With gray skies and scattered snowstorms, it's hard not to wonder when it's going to be sunny and warm again. Also, why didn’t we book that trip to Palm Springs?
Well, at least February is mostly over, and there are some good sales to be had this week.
Breaking news! Roe Wolfe is moving into Arrow's old storefront in the North Loop
It’s official! North Loop boutique Roe Wolfe is sliding into the space recently vacated by Arrow (121 N. First St.). The new location will open in early April. For now, continue to find your favorite Maison Scotch pieces at 113 Washington Ave. N. in Minneapolis.
Get to know LEWK
(LEWK Open Studio, 945 Broadways St. NE, Minneapolis)
We're not sold on the name of this new men’s retailer yet, and we've also never seen their stuff in person. Since they haven’t been around for very long, they’re inviting everyone to get to know them at an open studio featuring wine, Fulton beer, and snacks from Pittsburgh Blue. LEWK is unique in that it’s a delivery system; you pay for a certain amount of items, which are then sent straight to you on a monthly basis. It seems handy for dudes who have zero style (we know more than a few). Check it out this Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. The event also features jewels and other treasures from Jella: World Artist Collections.
Hunt & Gather Winter Blah Sale
(Hunt & Gather, 4944 Xerxes Ave. S., Minneapolis)
Hunt & Gather knows all about our winter blahs, so much so that their weekend sale is named after them. For just two days, take 20 percent off your purchase at the famous jumble of antiques, vintage, clothing, and junk begging to be repurposed on 50th and Xerxes. Hunt & Gather is a top spot to dig for treasures, and 20 percent off can be a pretty legit deal when you’re buying a roughed-up old oil painting with tons of charm (not that that happened to us last weekend). We’ve also found vintage pieces from Dayton’s Oval Room (RIP) in the basement. The sale is just two days long, so hurry in. Hours: Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, February 28 from noon to 6 p.m.
Rewind Get Pretty Sale
(Rewind Vintage: 2207 Lyndale Ave. S./2829 Johnson St. NE in Minneapolis)
Rewind Vintage is a great spot for well-priced, fun, and trendy vintage from the ‘80s and ‘90s. Browsing through their racks is a great pick-me-up, as the Rewind crew isn’t afraid of color. It’s nearly time for their legendary Get Pretty Sale, where you’ll receive a whopping 50 percent off clothes and shoes and 25 percent off everything else. It’s the best time to pick up both spring sundresses and costume pieces to save for Halloween because, hello, they’re all 50 percent off.
