    Minneapolis Store Photos. It Looks Different. Again.

    A customer walked into the Minneapolis store this past weekend, and literally squealed as she turned the corner from the entryway. She was thrilled that it looked completely different than the last time she was in {turns out, that was last week.} It probably wouldn't be a surprise to those of you who have shopped at our Carver store - it looks different every single time we open the doors. It's impossible for it to look the same, when we turn over 75% of our inventory each weekend we're open. The Minneapolis store is open every week - so you may assume not much changes from week to week. But.......we actually bring in new pieces of furniture every day - and because our furniture is all vintage, antique, or handmade,  the pieces are all one-of-a-kind. When a piece leaves the store, and we replace it with something else new and cool {sometimes multiple times per day}, it means it looks completely different in here each weekend. Here are some of my favorite things from the Minneapolis store last weekend P.S. We're open every week, Thursday - Sunday. We have a fun make & take painting project happening on Thursday night - check it out on Facebook. The Carver store is open for a one-day sale this Saturday as well!

    Carver Junk Company MINNEAPOLIS!

    Remember when we told you we'd signed the lease on an AMAZING storefront in a FANTASTIC neighborhood in BEAUTIFUL Minneapolis? It was probably filled with way more exaggerated adjectives I just can't remember right now, but it turns out all of those things are really true! We've been looking for a space in Minneapolis for over a year. We knew it's where our second store was meant to be, and we've been holding out for the perfect location. "Holding out" turned into "waiting until we had more time" when we had a baby in July. We told everyone we knew that we'd probably wait until Spring or Summer 2015 to make the jump into Minneapolis. And if we've learned anything in the last few years, it's that we are often presented the best opportunities when we least expect them, and our success has come from recognizing and seizing those opportunities. So, here we are - with our second store at 4748 Chicago Ave S in Minneapolis. In a neighborhood we love, surrounded by businesses {and business owners} we love. AND WE ARE SO EXCITED! Have a look at the store before we opened last weekend: [caption id="attachment_1314" align="alignnone" width="1024"]Custom marquee light in the Carver Junk Company logo. Recycle. Repurpose. Relove.

It was a warm welcome to Minneapolis, and we're looking forward to a great year in 2015. We'll be open every Thursday through Sunday, and because the items we carry are primarily one-of-a-kind, the store will look new and different each time you visit! And, of course, our Carver store will continue to be open with all of the same great junk you've come to expect, at least one weekend per month. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year, we hope to see you soon.
