I love going to local maker’s markets (fun fact, Joe and I met at one!) and discovering new goods and shops. It’s not going to feel the same this holiday season doing most of our shopping online.
The holidays look very different this year. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing; no more last-minute-oh-crap-we-forgot-XXX’s-gift runs to Target (I say this like it won’t happen this year), and retailers are getting creative with products and services.
This holiday season, we are participating in a new kind of retail experience, one that combines holiday shopping and that feeling of joy and wonder upon discovering the perfect gift, with contactless shopping. This year, join us as we participate in the Holiday Reimagined retail event at the Galleria, featuring The Collective. The Collective is an event curated and hosted by the LAB that showcases local businesses and makers. The Collective is beyond your typical pop-up—it’s a modern marketplace; an inspiring interactive experience to shop local.
Beginning the last weekend in November, and continuing through the first three weekends in December, The Collective is hosting a unique shopping experience. Forty-four Minneapolis/St. Paul makers and artisans will be sharing a few of their favorite products in shoppable window displays at the Galleria in Edina, MN.
This is a no-charge ticketed event. Tickets can be secured online here. We will be participating in the in-person market on December 5 – December 6! Stop by and say hello, and check out our Shop Wit & Delight products and some hand-selected vintage items!
