Hunt & Gather

It's true - Minnesota does have its fair share of sprawling cornfields and cow herds, but that's not all it's known for. There are some real one-of-a-kind shopping gems in these parts. One of my favorite places to hit up when I'm in town is Hunt & Gather, an eclectic antique store in south Minneapolis that is well stocked with more over-the-top quirky finds than you could ever imagine. I have been known to spend hours browsing each and every corner of this place - 25 booths to be exact - for cool statement items that would jazz up any room in the house. On my visit this weekend, I scored some clever stemmed glasses for the bar cart at $4 a piece. Who needs an early morning flea market when you can spend all your summer days here?
