The NE Holiday Boutique Crawl is this Saturday

​Whether we are ready for it or not, winter is upon us. With the snow comes the looming and hectic holiday season, so why not get a jump-start on your shopping this weekend? 

This Saturday's annual NE Holiday Boutique Crawl will give shoppers looking for unique local gifts great deals, giveaways, and even some carolers to add that extra kick to the day.

Rev up your gift-giving talents this Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. as the NE Holiday Boutique Crawl takes you to over 15 locally owned stores with special discounts just for being a part of the crawl. From Bone Adventure to Aveda to Surdyk's to Pacifier to Parc Boutique, the options, and savings are endless.

And even better, those endless options are all right smack dab in the cool shopping neighborhood of Northeast Minneapolis. Be sure to print out the map to nail down the perfect shopping route. 

While you shop and listen to the carolers (rumors are that they will be dressed in Victorian-type threads), remember to check in at all the participating locations with your gamecard so you can enter to win a Northeast stay-cation. 

So much to see and do, and so little time. For a list of the shops in the crawl, the map, and a gamecard, check out the official NE website
