by Livy Traczyk Etsy is one of the greatest yet most overwhelming shopping venues ever created. With so much to choose from we decided to narrow our focus to shops in Minnesota that sell wall papering or retiling goodies. Here are the top three stores we recommend! Store Name: Mish Mash It! Location: Minneapolis
Specialties: Vintage and Upcycled home goods Why We Love Them: If you’re looking for something delicate to add to an accent wall, check out this small Etsy shop, which currently has 11 pieces of vintage wallpaper flare. Our Favorite: The Vintage Greek Montage Wallpaper. The contrast between the subtle colorings of the print with its bold illustration will enhance any wall looking to make a small but definitive statement. Store Name: OMGstencils
Location: Owatonna Specialties: Wall Stencils Why We Love Them: With seven different collections for $50 or less, you can afford to get funky in a variety of places without breaking the bank. The measurements are much larger than the traditional stencil, making it easy to cover an entire wall in less than two hours and get a wallpaper effect. Our Favorite: Mexican Otomi Pattern. This kid’s room wall stencil is perfect for the modern nursery with it’s whimsical-chic design. Store Name: Blue Room Pottery Location: Minneapolis
Specialties: Thrown pottery home décor Why We Love Them: This store is for the home decorator who is looking for a few signature pieces to spice up a room instead of doing a overhaul. The tiles (which we recommend) are all handmade. Our Favorite: FLEUR-DE-LIT tile in blue green turquoise. The architectural handmade relief carved tile makes the perfect accent piece to an otherwise muted kitchen or bathroom. Each tile is made to order so no two are the same.
