Goodthings' new clothing and shoe boutique is now open in White Bear Lake. The veteran White Bear Lake retailer purchased the buidling next door to the existing store and spent the last six months transforming it into a 5,200 square foot multi-level boutique with mid-century design, bamboo floors, Douglas fir plank siding, and video display walls. The merchandise expands on lines Goodthings favored, with an eye toward relaxed style. Downstairs is the new activewear department and future yoga studio. Grand opening festivities run May 12-18 with daily drawings and a party on May 15 from 4 to 9 p.m.

Vom Fass is now open at Mall of America—the mall's first full-fledged olive oil store, offering dozens of oils, vinegar, spices, and liqueurs. You may be familiar with the family-owned German brand from its presence at Kowalski's. (I like the variety of containers they offer, but they really need to replace the plastic spoons with cups for samples). Second level, east side
