Minneapolis-based online retailer Velvet Moon is popping up at 50th & France for the month of June, in the old Nani Nalu space, which is tucked in the alley between the parking ramp and 50th Street (next to Decori Designs). This is Velvet Moon's first venture beyond the Northeast studio designer Gina Marie Landes opened recently.
Landes studied design in California and New York and then flea marketed her way through Europe before returning to Minnesota to start a clothing line called Gina Marie Vintage. "As a long time thrifitng fanatic…I wanted to create a brand of clothing that was timeless, not trendy," she explains on her website. Landes sells her designs online, along with other U.S.-made brands that match her modern bohemian style.
Stop by today, June 12, for a sip and shop event with wine and 15 percent off all purchases from 3 to 7 p.m. Velvet Moon is open Wednesday through Sunday until the end of June. 3922 W. 50th St., Edina
