Whew, what a week!
Leslie and I have an amazing new client we’re working with (we’ll reveal more details about them later), and have three big shoots for them this month. I am doing the styling for each, which has been a ton of fun, and has gotten me back into some of my favorite thrift and vintage stores around town.
The shoot I am shopping for now has a vintage/antique/collector theme, so, as one of my first stops, I of course darted over to the always amazing Hunt & Gather to browse the multi-level treasure trove that is their store. I was thrilled to find these really cool old film reels and slides – they will be a perfect addition to the set I’m working on! If you have never been to H&G, it’s worth it just for the spectacle even if you’re not in the market for anything at all. Here is a grainy/blurry cell phone photo of a corner of the space, just to give you glimpse:
H&G is filled with items from several different vintage dealers, so there is a huge, and well curated, variety of themes/styles/etc. There are also always extremely bizarre items that will keep you wondering what will be around the next corner.
So, it’s a treat to get to go browse spots like this for *work*, and a bit dangerous because it’s hard not to walk away with something for myself :)
If you’re like me and enjoy strolling through vintage shops, below are a few of my favorite in south Minneapolis that I visited today – maybe an activity for you this weekend?
