I'm keen on Minty Keen

Last week I adventured to a brand new shop downtown selling a bit of this and a bit of that and lots of everything I love. Minty Keen has vintage treasures – including my favorite fabric finds: handkerchiefs, tablecloths, and aprons – all happily mingled with crafty goodness and stationery delights. Heavenly! The owner is an absolute peach: friendly, helpful, enthusiastic, and obviously gifted in an artistic way herself. The store is a visual delight and inspiration. It was love at first sight for this designer/crafter/artist!

I am not the only one who has this store on my radar. It was recently featured in the Grand Rapids Press and in the Rapid Growth website. If you're going to be downtown for ArtPrize you might as well take a peek. Get an early start on your holiday shopping or treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind gift.
