Shop Local, Shop Small

I am a busy girl!  Between stopping in at our auto shop (Twin Cities Auto Spot) every now and then, getting the nanny kids from camp, and meeting with clients (Fashion Fix) I don't get to shop a lot.  Weird to say for girl who runs a fashion blog and is a personal stylist, right?  Well let me clarify.  I shop, but it's always mission style.  I typically have something specific to get for a client or my self, I am in and out the mall or store.  What I long for is a leisurely stroll through a cute boutique I stumbled upon, or the casual walk around the mall to see what's new.  

Well I actually had the chance the do some exploratory shopping this week, hurray!  The other day I had an hour to kill with the 5 year old.  We were in the neighborhood where this extremely cute farm stand/shop is located, and I have always wanted to check it out.  It was great!  And, I am posting this rendezvous here in the Shop Local, Shop Small series on the blog.  This is a series of post where I feature small local business in the Twin Cities.  Being a small business owner my self, I know we need all the support we can get!

To read the heart warming story of this farm link up {here}.  The stand/store is located in Eden Prairie on the corner of Eden Prairie Rd and Pioneer Trail.

These crazy guys greeted me at the gate!  As I explored further, I found many more unique goods.

 I couldn't resit shopping the all the yummy farm fresh foods!

And of course they had beautiful plants and flowers...

I loved this place, and you have to see it for your self.  Make sure you visit in the Fall too when they have mounds of pumpkins and Autumnal goods!
