The transformation of FiveTwoSix Salon in St. Paul is nearly complete. The popular Selby Avenue salon gutted the entire 526 building (just east of Dale) and moved the salon to the back, where the gallery used to be. The new salon is a stark contrast to the old space: deconstructed, industrial, concrete, and modern furnishings. Meanwhile, the front of the building is now home to two stores: Corazon and Olive You.
This is a second location for indie gift store Corazon, which has long been a go-to in the Longfellow neighborhood. The warm, rustic storefront is filled with books, toys, gourmet goodies, jewelry, and cards—a stellar addition to the neighborhood. Olive You is a locally owned gourmet olive oil and balsamic vinegar store with a welcoming vibe: there's a children's play area, plenty to taste, and lingering is encouraged.
Just a few more reasons to visit what is becoming one of the best shopping blocks in St. Paul.
