To the delight of urban shoppers, Carver Junk Company—the Carver, Minn.-based occasional store—has opened a second store, at 48th and Chicago in Minneapolis. I'm always happy to have new reasons to visit the still-underappreciated corner, which is also home to Turtle Bread Co., Primp, Spa Sweet, and Shop in the City.
Carver Junk Company sells refinished furniture and handmade décor and accessories—more rustic chic than crafty. The cozy space is filled with objects large and small, from dressers and chairs to cable knit infinity scarves and candles in antique Ball jars. For those inspired to DIY, Carver sells Milk Paint and Chalk Paint. Want tips? Check out Carver’s events and workshops.
Carver Junk Company is open Thursday through Sunday at 4748 Chicago Ave. S., Mpls.
