Local pride is big in Minnesota. Obviously because we have so much to be proud of. Rochester, Minnesota ranked #1 on liveablitiy.com's Top 100 Best Places to Live. And Minnesota as a whole typically ranks within the top 5 of best states in the country on many similar lists. Sure, it gets a little cold from time to time, but we make the best of it. As for food, art, nature, and business goes, we got it goin' on.
I've wanted to create my own representation of Minnesota love for a long time. Someday, that will be in form of a cozy boutique in St. Paul. Lately, I've been motivated to start small(er). For the past couple of months, I've been supplying Sisu Boutique with hats that Steve and I design and print locally. The response has been really positive, which just makes me want to do more, PLUS give my artistic friends a retail outlet for their beautiful creations, PLUS test out a few other Minnesota-based products.
June 10,11 & 12, I'll be setting up shop at Teeny Bee Boutique with a fun selection of things - some of which cannot currently be obtained anywhere else. It's a fun opportunity for me to see what other Minnesota lovers respond to. If you're in the area, I hope you'll stop by.
